Scottish promoter DF Concerts today announced the first details of its new festival in Glasgow.

Dubbed Trnsmt, the event will take place on Glasgow Green from 7 to 9 July – traditionally the weekend usually reserved for T in the Park, which went on indefinite hiatus late last year.

Glasgow City Council had previously revealed it was in talks with the promoter with a view to hosting a non-camping festival in the city, Scotland’s largest, in July 2017.

Radiohead and Coldplay are rumoured to be in the running for headline slots.

In July, prior to the announcement of its at least temporary cancellation, DF said T in the Park was “back on track” following a revamp of its arena, campsite and transport infrastructure for 2016 in response to problems the previous year – although it did not sell out, despite a reduction in capacity of 15,000, to 70,000.

According to a source quoted by The Courier, Trnsmt will have a capacity of half that: 35,000.
