One of the most successful British bands to emerge in recent times with the fastest selling debut album of any British band in history, it’s been over three years since Arctic Monkeys last played in Scotland. Releasing their hugely successful fifth studio album AM alongside an extensive international tour, Arctic Monkeys made history as the first independent label band with five consecutive Number 1 albums in the UK. Other achievements include an Ivor Novello award, a Mercury Music Prize, 20 NME awards, 5 Q awards and 3 Grammy nominations. The much-loved band enjoyed their most successful touring period in support of AM, headlining over 100 shows and festivals around the world. With news of a new record looming, we’re sure the new songs will create those iconic festival singalongs, alongside anthems like ‘I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor’, ‘Brianstorm’ and ‘Do I Wanna Know’. TRNSMT are thrilled to welcome Arctic Monkeys to Glasgow Green this July.
Joining Arctic Monkeys on Sunday 1st July, are Interpol, Blossoms, Nothing But Thieves, Declan McKenna, Miles Kane and Tom Grennan.
Tom Ogden, Blossoms said:
“We’re thrilled to be heading back to this year’s TRNSMT Festival. We had a proper blast last year. The Scottish really know how to throw a party and more importantly, a festival!”
A man who is no stranger to fellow TRNSMT act Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane will play TRNSMT’s Main Stage on Sunday 1st July, bringing his energetic set to Scottish soil. Having worked with Paul Weller, Mark Ronson and of course, Alex Turner, Miles Kane is one of his generation’s most established songwriters.
Miles Kane said:
“It’s been too long since I’ve been on stage – I cannot wait to get up and perform a high energy set with a couple of new bangers thrown in! Bring it on!”
With 2018 bringing Tom Grennan’s debut album and biggest UK headline tour to date, an appearance at TRNSMT will be the cherry on the cake for the young performer. The 22-year-old’s latest single ‘Sober’ made Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World early this month, the singer-songwriter was named on BBC’s Sound of 2017 and Tom even made a guest appearance on Charli XCX’s hit video for ‘Boys’ in 2017. His debut on Glasgow Green will see him performing catchy, made for summer tunes like ‘Royal Highness’ and ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’.
A city already renowned for its captive music audiences, TRNSMT’s first year in 2017 showed artists from around the world that there’s nothing better than a Scottish crowd and 2018 promises to deliver an even stronger transmission. With Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, and The Killers as headliners, there’s no doubt that Glasgow is the place to be for music fans next June and July.
Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts said:
“DF Concerts are thrilled to bring TRNSMT fans Arctic Monkey’s as our opening weekend’s final headliners; we’ve wanted to have them back in Scotland for a while now and can’t wait to see what their set will bring. Sunday 1st July’s line-up is a combination of legends and bright young stars. We can assure fans TRNSMT 2018 will be unmissable. Stay tuned!”
