TRNSMT Lineup 2020

You mean the same festival which saw Sigrid pack out the Main Stage last year (on the same day headlined by Catfish & the Bottlemen) and has Rita Ora as one of just 3 acts announced on the sole day which has sold out.

One of the things TRNSMT (and T before) always prided itself on was having a varied lineup. Pop, R&B and hip hop have always had a place at TRNSMT, it’s never been just an exclusively guitar band lineup.

don't think its fair to say Rita Ora contributed to that sell out much, Lewis Capaldi is the headliner that was obviously gonna sell like hotcakes in Glasgow

Yep. Could have had The Lancashire Hotpots on the Lewis Capaldi day and it'd have done the same business.

I almost didn’t use the Rita Ora example because I thought someone would bring this up but given the post in question challenged that people were going to the festival for other non-headline acts (Foals, Ian Brown) who are yet to sell out their day, the comparison stands.

Even if you were wanting to stick solely to guitar bands, there are plenty available who could’ve been included on the initial lineup. It’s a huge oversight from DF to not have included more given they’ve had similar reaction to lineup announcements previously when they included more women than what they announced this year!

As others have said here, Lewis capaldi could of probably sold this day out on his own, they could have me on the undercard and it’d be the same result. The majority of people that are going to buy weekend tickets for this will be going for the bands simply due to how it’s filled out with them. I’m not saying no women would draw and I can’t stress that enough.

 

but naming people like little mix is hilarious , there’s not a chance people are going to buy weekend tickets (which is want they want to sell) for such a madly mixed line up. Even when Rita Ora came out, all the reactions I was seeing were essentially “what is she doing there”

My nephew is desperate to go to this, so I'm taking him to the Friday and Saturday. So I now have a horse in the race. I was always looking at the Saturday, but not sure how much joy I'm going to get from the Friday. Courteeners will be great. Blossoms I might enjoy a bit.

Anyone got any thoughts on who will be on the undercard on this? I'm assuming there'll be bands further down the lineup who'll be doing all of the festivals. I think The Snuts will get a decent King Tuts spot. I reckon Tom Walker will be on the lineup somewhere but can't really place anyone else.

Anyone got any idea where they think Guns and Rose's will be playing in Scotland. 

Live Nation seem to think they'll be doing a Scottish show. Due to the demand, can see them doing it to be honest. BT Murrayfield potentially, or maybe even Bellahouston Park?

Snuts will be on main stage, way too big for king tuts. They must’ve had 10-15k at least, 2nd up this year and they have an album coming out next year.

I still can't see The Snuts playing much further up which is why I see them as a potential Tut's headliner or not playing at all.

Although they're supporting Gerry Cinnamon, aren't they? Might well rule them out.

Why do you think that?

TRNSMT’s colour scheme. They’ll be king tuts though so it’ll probably just be that.

Fair enough, I could see that being it.

Any news or speculation about the Edinburgh/Glasgow Summer Sessions yet? Went to a few Edinburgh ones & The Cure one last year & loved every second of the Summer Sessions I went to. Appears to be all quiet on that end for this year

By any chance could this Dundee festival be the return of carnival fifty-six or whatever it was called? I remember it was around for a year or two and they decided to take a break for last year but it never came back. Could be shaping up for a return next year

It's 100% the radio one big weekend

I wouldn’t be so sure, they’ve never returned to a past venue before and they did Camperdown Park a few years back.

Just speculation but apparently Calvin Harris and Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing Sziget which is around the same time as Summer Sessions, so they both seem quite likely for the Glasgow one. I could see Biffy Clyro being the third day as I think they have a few festivals announced in August. Biffy and RHCP on consecutive days with a two day ticket would probably sell quite well, similar to what they did last year for The Cure and Foo Fighters.
