Lewis Capaldi is set to take a headline slot at next year’s TRNSMT Festival.
The Scots singer will perform in the Sunday headline slot at Glasgow Green in July – his first major UK Festival headline debut.
Finishing the bill for July 12 is Snow Patrol and Rita Ora.
Also announced is Courteeners, Ian Brown and Sam Fender on the Friday night, July 10, and Liam Gallagher on the Saturday.
After three years in Glasgow Green, TRNSMT returns as one of the UK’s biggest and best festivals – pulling together worldwide superstars and UK artists.
With a Grammy nomination, sold out shows across the world, a number one single on both sides of the Atlantic and a record-breaking debut album, 23-year-old Capaldi will make a huge return to the Scots festival.
The Bathgate native shared his excitement: “ Yaaaaaas! I’ve been lucky enough to play TRNSMT every year since its inception and to be a headliner is absolutely wild. Things are about to get chubby and sexy, fast. See you up the road next year.”
It is not the first time Liam Gallagher has headlined the festival with his blistering set bringing the festival to a close in 2018.
He said: “I love Scotland and it’s an honour to be going back to headline TRNSMT Festival.
P.s. Have I told you lately that I Love You?”
Speaking about TRNSMT 2020, Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “The response that we’ve had to TRNSMT since we launched in 2017 is amazing to see. The fact that it has become such a pillar of the UK festival scene every year is testament to the incredible music fans that we have here in this country.
“We’re delighted that TRNSMT 2020 will host the major UK festival headline debuts from global superstar Lewis Capaldi and indie favourites Courteeners, plus the return of the legend that is Mr. Liam Gallagher. With a varied line up and many more acts to be announced in the new year, plus several fun activations as always, along with a wide range of drinks and scrumptious artisan food to suit all tastes, we can’t wait to welcome 50,000 music fans per day to the heart of this cultural capital that is Glasgow.”
