TRNSMT 2021: Bizarre items you can't take into Glasgow Green's music festival - and some items that are very obvious

By Sophie Buchan

TRNSMT opened their doors to festival-goers today with 50,000 people expected to walk through its gates.

The Glasgow Green music festival, taking place over the course of three days, will welcome back revellers for the first time since 2019 after Covid put a halt to large gatherings.

And whilst some may be keeping an eye on the weather and hoping for a sunny weekend, others may be wondering about what they can and can't take in.

According to their website, if anyone is "caught with any of these items, you may be refused entry and prosecuted."

Some bizarre items that are not allowed in include an umbrella and a selfie stick - aren't these festival must haves - especially the selfie stick?
