LEWIS CAPALDI SAYS TRNSMT 2020 WILL BE CHUBBY AND FAST



LEWIS Capaldi claims things are about to get ‘chubby, sexy and fast’ as he’s confirmed he’s playing TRNSMT festival 2020 as headliner on Sunday July 12. 
Lewis said of the news “Yaaaaaas! I've been lucky enough to play TRNSMT every year since it’s 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! X” 

After three incredible years in Glasgow Green, TRNSMT has also announced Courteeners and Liam Gallagher will bring top-draw headline performances to the heart of the city.
 


Liam who plays on Saturday said of the news: “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?”
   
And Courteeners frontman Liam Fray who plays on Friday said:
“Scotland took us straight to their hearts, right from the very start. Starting with playing the ABC with The Coral back in 2007, we’ve always had an amazing connection with the people of Scotland. Feels like a 2nd home. To headline TRNSMT is a serious honour and we'll be bringing a serious party. What a line-up”
 
Other acts announced for this years mega music fest include Rita Ora, Foals, Snow Patrol who missed playing last year, Blossoms, Sam Fender, Twin Atlantic and Ian Brown also making a TRNSMT debut. 



Speaking about TRNSMT 2020, Rita Ora said:
“Scotland! Delighted to return to Glasgow for my first appearance at TRNSMT, with an amazing lineup on the Sunday! Looking forward to seeing you all, it’s going to be a big one.”
Speaking about their hometown return, Twin Atlantic frontman Sam McTrusty added:
“It’s going to be wild. We feel so energised with new music we made in a studio that overlooks Glasgow Green. There is no closer venue to our studio! It’s an added special sauce that is going to make this a day to remember for us. Ross and I walked past the production entrance in 2018 on our way to work on our new album ‘POWER’ when Queen were soundchecking and felt so inspired to the point that the energy of playing to a massive crowd outdoors in the city we belong to is literally interwoven with the music. Here we fucking go.”
 
Keane, Aitch and Little Simz also join the lineup which theshowbizlion.com reckons is one of the best yet.
 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.

Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council said: “The world knows of Glasgow’s standing as one of the great music cities and our ability to put on a show.

“In just four short years TRNSMT has cemented its place as a fixture on our events calendar, bringing tens of thousands of visitors and some of the biggest names in popular music to the heart of Glasgow, all generating a major lift for the city’s economy worth millions of pounds. 

“2020 is shaping up to be a historic year for Glasgow. Euro 2020 at Hampden and the gathering of world leaders at COP26 will again underscore our international reputation for vitality, vibrancy and hospitality. TRNSMT will no doubt play its part in what will be a memorable 12 months.

“Between now and July the Council will be working closely with organisers DF Concerts, other partner authorities and, of course, the local community to ensure that visitors and Glaswegians alike can enjoy and benefit from TRNSMT.”
Revealing only a selection of names set for TRNSMT 2020, with more to be revealed across the Main, King Tut’s Stage Powered by Utilita Energy and Queen Tut’s stage - it’s another blockbuster weekend in the UK festival summer that’ll have thousands flocking to Glasgow Green this July.
 
Home to the greatest crowd on the planet, TRNSMT welcomes 150,000 fans to Glasgow Green across one incredible weekend - as a pinnacle of the summer festival season and a defining headline moment for some of the biggest artists in the world. Previous years have seen the likes of Arctic Monkeys, RadioheadThe Killers, Stormzy, Queen & Adam Lambertand George Ezra serve up mammoth moments, with TRNSMT 2020 destined to add more unforgettable memories in front of an adoring Glasgow crowd.
