TRNSMT 2021: Spot yourself in the crowds on day one of festival

By Laura Ferguson

TRNSMT has kicked off with a bang in Glasgow today as the festival made its return for the first time in two years.

Music fans returned to Glasgow Green for the first of three days of live bands and artists.

Sports Team opened the Main Stage, with lead singer Alex Rice donning a kilt before dedicating their opening song to The Snuts’, who sadly had to pull out at the last minute after one of their band members tested positive for covid.

Berwyn told the Glasgow Green crowd he hadn’t slept after coming straight from the Mercury Prize party, while Holly Humberstone offered soulful songs ‘Overkill’ and latest single ‘Please Don’t Leave Just Yet’ on the King Tut's stage.

AJ Tracey and YXNG Bane were over at Main Stage with AJ Tracey telling the crowd they had ‘way better energy than London’, while Red Rum Club and Shambolics took to the King Tut’s Stage. Fans also checked out DJ sets from Nightwave or TAALLIAH.

More than 70 acts will perform across three stages over the course of the weekend, as live music once again rang out across the park.

Meanwhile, Festival-goers headed to the brand-new Wellbeing Area, where they could take a break or speak to trained volunteers if required.

Tomorrow will see the likes of Liam Gallagher, Primal Scream, KSI, Becky Hill and more take to the TRNSMT stage.
