MUSIC lovers have been arriving at the TRNSMT festival which opened in Glasgow yesterday.

Up to 50,000 people a day are expected to attend the festival, which is taking place at Glasgow Green until tomorrow, with performers including Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol, Amy Macdonald and The Chemical Brothers.

However, Scottish indie band The Snuts yesterday cancelled their gig after one band member and a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.

Festival goers arrived at the Glasgow Green site under overcast skies when gates opened at 11am yesterday, some wearing face masks and many draped in Saltire flags.

The Courteeners, Sam Fender, Blossoms and Inhaler were among the bands performing yesterday.

The National:

To gain access to the site, everyone who attends TRNSMT must provide proof of a negative NHS Covid-19 lateral flow test (LFT), which must be taken no more than 48 hours before they arrive.

Ticket holders will be refused entry without proof of a negative LFT, and those attending on multiple days must take a second test 48 hours after the first one.

The Snuts took to social media to share the news they could not attend yesterday, tweeting: “We are beyond devastated to let you know that we are unable to perform at TRNSMT festival today.

“A band member and one of our crew have both tested positive for Covid. We put so much work into what was going to be the biggest show of our lives and we were so excited to share it with you.”

Other bands on the line-up include Twin Atlantic, Primal Scream and Keane.

TRNSMT is asking fans to avoid sharing cars with people outside of their household and to wear masks if travelling on public transport.

It also recommends that face coverings are worn in any queues on entry, as well as at toilets or bar areas.

The festival is also operating as a completely cashless site for the first time.
