Saint PHNX, Stone, Terra Kin, Finn Askew, Dead Pony, The Roly Mo, Kitti and Etta Marcus will all be present along with Paolo Nutini, Sam Fender, Tom Grennan and Nile Rodgers on the opening day of the festival.
Baby Strange, Parliamo, CVC, George O’Hanlon, Medicine Cabinet, Pip Millet and CMAT joined Saturday’s lineup alongside The Strokes, Foals, The Snuts, Jimmy Eat World and Maximo Park.
Sunday’s lineup, which includes Lewis Capaldi, Wolf Alice, DMA’s, Sigrid and Easy Life, will now include Everyone You Know, The Reytons, Bonnie Kemplay, Alex Amor, Rianne Downey, Dylan Fraser, Luz and Connor Fyfe.
The opening day of the Glasgow Green festival, which will take place from July 8 to 10, is already sold out.
Lanarkshire teenager Fyfe, who at 15 is the youngest actor on the festival lineup, said: ‘I was going this year to see the rest of the lineup but being asked to play is mental. It’s class and I’m ready for it.
Glasgow post-punk indie band Dead Pony said: “Festival season is our favorite time of year.
“We all like the sun, having a few drinks and playing in front of crowds that are as excited as we are to be there.
“What makes it better is playing a festival in your own town and being able to see your friends and family in the crowd. It’s so special to share this experience. We all can’t wait.
Jack Dailly, lead singer of Perth pop group Parliamo, said: “Playing Scotland’s biggest festival is a dream come true for Parliamo. We look forward to bringing our tracks to a wider audience of music fans from Scotland and beyond who will hopefully jump aboard the bandwagon of madness that is Parliamo. It’s a huge opportunity for us and we’re going to go full throttle.
TRNSMT was one of the few summer music festivals in Scotland to survive the impact of Covid restrictions in 2021 after organizers moved the event, which had been staged to July since its launch in 2017 , in September.
The event took place with a total capacity of 50,000 and featured the Courteeners, Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol, Primal Scream, Sam Fender and The Chemical Brothers.
