Edith Bowman will present highlights from TRNSMT’s star-studded history as fans tune in for performances from all three years of the festival, including Biffy Clyro, Lewis Capaldi and Radiohead.

The TRNSMT TAKEOVER will air from 9pm on Saturday 11th July as BBC Scotland feature some of the biggest and best TRNSMT sets. Keeping festival spirits high, fans can tune into a three hour-long highlight programme between 9pm-midnight on what would have been Saturday night at TRNSMT, with special links from host Edith Bowman. To entertain the nation on what is normally one of the biggest weekends in the UK’s festival calendar, sets from TRNSMT 2017, 2018 and 2019 will ensure fans don’t miss out on their festival experience this summer – no matter the weather!

Edith, who has covered all three years of BBC Scotland’s TRNSMT coverage, says: “TRNSMT is one of the highlights of my year and I’m looking forward to reliving some of the many music moments from the last three years on the BBC Scotland channel. Like so many other festival goers, I’m going to miss being in Glasgow Green for this year’s TRNSMT but this TV takeover is the next best thing. TRNSMT always has a great atmosphere – there’s something really unique about a city festival. So no matter where you are in the country, sit down, tune in and enjoy the TRNSMT takeover with me.”

Fans should stay tuned to TRNSMT’s social channels for even more activity across the weekend.

The festival will return in 2021 with acts including Courteeners, Liam Gallagher, Lewis Capaldi, Ian Brown, Foals, Rita Ora, Snow Patrol and more all set to ensure next year’s festival is worth waiting for.

Fans can purchase via Ticketmaster’s payment plan deposit scheme, securing their 2021 ticket from just £33 (+fees) on their first payment, followed by two more instalments.
