Here are the entry requirements for this weekends TRNSMT Festival

By Gregor Farquharson

Live music returns to Glasgow Green this weekend as TRNSMT Festival is set to go ahead.

This will be the first TRNSMT Festival since 2019, as last year's festival was canceled due to restrictions on crowds due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Around 50,000 people are expected to descend on Glasgow Green daily this weekend to see acts such as Liam Gallagher, The Chemical Brothers, and Amy MacDonald.

But this year's festival may seem different as there are extra steps being taken to ensure the publics' safety.

With news of vaccine passports, there is a lot of confusion about what will be accepted as an entry into TRNSMT this year.

However, the festival has cleared this up for fans and announced what fans will be expected to show at the gates this weekend.

TRNSMT festival-goers will be required to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test on entry so that they are allowed into the festival.

The test must have been taken 48 hours before the day of the event, meaning if you are going across multiple days you may need to take more than one test.

For example, if you take your first test on Friday morning before arriving onsite, you must take another one on Sunday morning before setting off in order to enter the festival.

These tests can be ordered free of charge here, or picked up from your local pharmacy or drop-in test centre – you can find your local collection point here, and must be taken no more than 48 hours ahead of arrival.
