Rockstar Energy presents TRNSMT and the Barras Market are joining forces on Saturday 1st June to give fans a taste of what’s to come on Glasgow Green this July as the festival takes over the iconic market with live music from River Stage and Boogie Bar acts, a sustainable fashion pop-up, delicious food, and the chance to win festival tickets.

For one day only, visitors to the Barras can shop sustainable fashion rails, second-hand influencer edits and bring pre-loved clothing for customisation to create the perfect festival outfit for summer. Giving fans a taste of what’s to come this summer, there will be live sets from Scotland’s very own River Stage artists Ben Walker, Kerr Mercer and ili as well as a DJ set from Boogie Bar star Inez.

Two circular fashion brands will also be joining the Barras festival lineup. Pre-loved charity, R:evolve will bring rails filled with festival clothing with sales supporting their work in reducing the consumption of fast fashion and textile waste. To inspire less fast fashion, ACS will be bringing pre-loved festival fashion rails as well as the unique opportunity to customise t-shirts with screenprinting.

Glasgow fashion creator and stylist, Shauna McGregor will also be bringing some of her pre-loved festival clothing and will be on hand to style outfits and inspire shoppers on the day.

Hidden among the rails will be golden labels, giving five lucky winners two free VIP tickets to this summer’s Glasgow Green extravaganza.

The fashion pop-up aims to encourage festival goers to shop more sustainably when choosing their festival looks this year. Rockstar Energy presents TRNSMT encourages fans to join them and artists just to ‘Play Our Part’ and has a number of sustainability initiatives - the festival exceeded major goals by reducing energy emissions by over 90% through investing in sustainable biodiesel, and recycling 66% of waste with nothing going to landfill.

Kevin Mackay, Sustainability Lead at DF Concerts, said: “As the festival approaches, we know that fans will be starting to plan their day - and their festival outfit might be at the top of their list. The legendary Barras Market sits on the edge of Glasgow Green and has totally transformed sustainable shopping for the city - so it was only right that we took over the market for one day to give festival-goers the chance to shop sustainably while enjoying a taste of the weekend that awaits us in July.

“We want 2024 to be our most sustainable summer of live music yet and we encourage everyone to join us to all play our part in taking conscious climate action - buying second-hand or swapping with pals is just one way to support this. We also encourage fans to travel by public transport, try plant-based meals, and recycle when they’re on site.”


Wendy Chambers, Head of Growth and Sustainability at R:evolve Recycle said: “We know the TRNSMT crowd are going to love our vibe. We have a cracking range of festival gear that will get heads turning, but won't cost the earth. If you see something you love, why not become a member of our swap shop? When the big event is over, you can simply swap it again in our swap shop boutique”.

Hayley McDonald, Fashion Resale Manager at ACS added: “We at ACS are thrilled to be part of the Rockstar Energy presents TRNSMT x Barras event, where we can help champion pre-loved fashion among young festival goers. This event is a fantastic opportunity to connect with the community in Glasgow and promote a more sustainable future together. It is great to see the revival of the Barras market in the past few years and we're excited to come down and soak up the atmosphere on the day!”
