Way too early to really have any sensible prediction, but yeah Biffy seem like they could definitely be about, and since their lineups probably aren't going to get much better I'll take a shot in the dark and go Biffy, Gerry Cinnamon and, I dunno, Two Door Cinema Club

Main contenders I can think:

Gerry Cinnamon- new album sometime, Hampden this year, sells tix for fun and cheap as chips

Kasabian- only playing Leicester this year, probs new album and lots of dates next summer, DF always book them

Paolo Nutini- If he's about could see him doing it, must be back sometime soon

Biffy Clyro- new album soon and always booked

Main certainties are that they will continue as they have done last two years of booking British artists who appeal to the kinda 16-25 range as it is clearly working for them and they wont change a winning formula.

Courteeners 

LG

Capaldi

Only change I could maybe see is Kasabian in for someone. Gerry said he’s looking to reschedule not cancel, so if he’s doing Hampden next summer he won’t be at this.

It’s going to be more or less the same as 2020. Keane were meant to be playing a festival in Newcastle the day before their TRNSMT day & have confirmed that they’re playing the Newcastle festival in 2021 so they’ll be sure to come to TRNSMT too as it’s the same week. Don’t imagine many artists changing tbh

Don't think Gerry Cinnamon will be back at trnsmt since sacking DF as his managers.

Who are his mangers now

I honesty don’t get why they have replicated the entire lineup. All of the ‘new bands’ booked for lower stages aren’t going to be new bands in July 2021. What about bands who breakthrough in the next year? Are they going to be denied festival slots next summer?

Lewis Capaldi’s debut album will be more than TWO YEARS OLD by the time the 2021 Festival rolls around.

Well if you look at it from their perspective, a lot of the acts further down the lineup who this year were deemed ‘new’ or ‘up and coming’ may be much bigger come next year, therefore making the lineup look stronger. I get what you’re saying about new acts (although I’m sure there will be significantly less popping up what with everything going on) but this and many other lineups doing similar are gonna look pretty stacked next year if just a couple of the lower acts hit it big.

You’re right but it might also be the opposite. Are Lewis Capaldi and Sam Fender still going to be as popular two years on from the release of their debut albums? What if a lot of the ‘new’ acts don’t take off and they’re stuck with an artist who’s album underperformed a year ago in a Main Stage slot?

Nobody was asking them to rush release a lineup. They could’ve waited until later in the year to understand a bit about what popular music might look like in 2021 before announcing a full lineup.

Valid point but I can’t see any artists getting ‘bigger’ between now and then unless they become a tik tok meme.

I’m sorry I know my comment is awful but there is a lot of truth in it. The biggest hits at the moment are memes.

Lewis capaldi will probably be a better headliner with a second  album out by then. I guess it's more important to keep the ticket holders from this year though and for them to not ask for refunds.

I don’t think many will really make a significant step up, but all it takes is one hit single or a new album release and boom, they should be a couple more places up lineups. We’ve got over a year until these festivals so a lot of time for some currently rising acts to cement themselves as more than that, if only through some tiktok bullshit.

There are so many bullshit negative posts in here in regards to booking the same lineup. If it was one that was liked people wouldn't bat an eye lid over it.

Well... yeah obviously. Isn’t it a given that if the lineup was better it would have less complaints?

AJ Tracey was in first email they sent out, but he's not on the posters online now

The TBC slots were Aitch, AJ Tracey and Dermot Kennedy on Main
