When announcing the first acts for this year’s TRNST last November, festival director Geoff Ellis said in a statement: “We know that while everyone is feeling the squeeze from rising prices, there’s an unwavering demand for live music.
“We’ve made the decision to keep our weekend general admission tickets at the same price as last year for the initial on sale and it’s important to us that experiencing the thrill and excitement of live music is accessible to as many people as possible.
“If Glasgow Green had a roof, it will be well and truly raised next summer and we can’t wait to welcome fans back.”
Reviewing the comeback event, NME said: “Local bands are well-represented and attended, and it’s an exciting prospect for the future of the festival.
“What that future is perhaps centres on one thing in particular. Since its inception, TRNSMT has been dogged by criticism of its lack of diversity, especially with regards to gender. It’s a characteristic that’s especially glaring when many of the best sets come from women.”
