Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival has become the latest 2020 festival to be cancelled due to coronavirus.
The event was set to be held on Glasgow Green across the weekend of July 9-11.
“We are absolutely gutted to announce that due to the comments made by the First Minister of Scotland during the daily briefing on 23rd April, TRNSMT will be unable to go ahead as planned in July 2020,” the festival wrote in a statement posted on social media.
“We did not want to take this step but it is unavoidable. The health and safety of our fans, artists, staff and community will always be our top priority.”

TRNSMT 2020 was set to be headlined by Courteeners, Liam Gallagher and Lewis Capaldi, and also feature sets from Ian Brown, Foals, Snow Patrol, Keane, Sam Fender, Blossoms, Aitch, Little Simz, Rita Ora, Twin Atlantic and more.
