TRNSMT will be going ahead as planned, despite worldwide event postponements and cancellations in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bosses made the announcement this afternoon, letting fans of the annual Glasgow Green music festival know that the event will still be taking place this July.

In a statement, they said: "TRNSMT is still scheduled to go ahead as planned and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the event in 16 weeks.

"The health and safety of festival goers, staff, artists and the surrounding community is our main priority and we are constantly monitoring the situation in accordance with advice from the World Health Organisation, Health Protection Scotland, UK and Scottish Government and local public health authorities. Love, TRNSMT x"

It comes as organisers of Glastonbury Festival yesterday announced that they were cancelling their 50th anniversary event, and would be giving the option of a refund or a guaranteed ticket to next year's festival to the 135,000 people who had already paid a deposit.

And Uefa announced earlier this week that the Euro 2020 competition, which was due to be played across 12 host cities including Glasgow in June and July, has been postponed until 2021.

So far 266 people in Scotland have tested positive for Covid-19, while six have died.
