We doubt you’ll find a better line-up in Scotland this year than TRNSMT Festival, with some huge names and plenty of upcoming acts to boot. Here’s a round-up of five acts you absolutely HAVE to see.

The Strypes

For some good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll with a modern twist, look no further than Ireland’s The Strypes. They’ve been non-stop for a good four years, but they’re showing no sign of stopping anytime soon. Their brand new album ‘Spitting Image’ is out now, so you can expect plenty of killer tracks off that.



Playing the main stage on the Sunday, Blossoms have seen a meteoric rise since forming in late 2013, becoming one of the most-anticipated bands to see live. It’ll be a slight change of pace from their set at Glastonbury this year, but you’re so not gonna want to miss the chance to see these lads.


Jp Cooper

Hitting the main stage on the Friday at TRNSMT, you’d be silly to miss one of the biggest records of the past year from Jp Cooper. ‘September Song’ may be his claim to glory, but he’ll surely deliver a whole set of indie mixed with his gorgeous vocals.


Declan Mckenna

Expect glitter, sweat, and good times at Declan Mckenna’s set, if his recent UK tour is anything to go by. The young Brit shows tonnes of maturity to deliver a stellar set, wherever he’s playing. Just listen out for his dedicated screaming girl fanbase to find where he is (King Tut’s Stage on Sunday just in case).


The Van T’s

With their latest single Fresh Meat featured on our #DiscoverTheUndiscovered playlist, you’re not going to want to miss The Van T’s in Glasgow. The West of Scotland foursome are comprised of Chloe Van Thompson (vocals, guitar), Hannah Van Thompson (vocals guitar), Joanne Forbes (bass) and Shaun Hood (drums) Their surf-pop/rock sound will be just the ticket to get you in the teen-angst mood.


TRNSMT Festival takes place on Glasgow Green July 7-9 2017
