Scotland's newest music festival will take place across two weekends next year, organisers have announced.

The main festival weekend for TRNSMT will occur over three days from June 29 to July 1, with two shows taking place the following weekend on July 6 and 8.

Organisers said the move will create a better experience for fans and ensure Glasgow is "the place to be" next summer.

More than 120,000 music lovers attended the inaugural TRNSMT festival at Glasgow Green in July, enjoying performances by the likes of Radiohead, Kasabian, Biffy Clyro, The Kooks and Stormzy.

Geoff Ellis, chief executive of organisers DF Concerts And Events, said: "After such a successful first year in 2017, we're absolutely delighted to extend the transmissions at TRNSMT Festival into two weekends to better the experience for the amazing TRNSMT fans next year.

"We're bringing even more of the best artists from around the world to Glasgow Green and making sure Glasgow is the place to be this summer.

"The event is now established at the heart of the Scottish music calendar and we are looking forward to announcing the line-up for both weekends soon, as well as the additional festival aspects TRNSMT has to offer, so stay tuned."

Fans who have already purchased their tickets or entered the deposit scheme have been assured that they will have the chance to "curate their own unique TRNSMT Festival experience" in light of the announcement.

The TRNSMT festival was created after it was announced T In The Park was to "take a break" in 2017 as organisers looked to resolve issues around its recent move to a new site in Perth and Kinross.

Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "Although TRNSMT is still a new event, Glasgow already has a global reputation for live music, with famous venues and legendary audiences.

"Between now and next summer, it is important that everyone involved focuses on making TRNSMT the best event it can be - and one which is supported by and benefits the local community.

"Cultural tourism is extremely important to us and a festival, held in the city's premier events space at Glasgow Green, will play a key role in bringing people to the city from all over Scotland and further afield.

"That is not only good news for the thousands of people who will enjoy the event; but for hundreds of city businesses in the tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors that support thousands of jobs."
