Second headline announcement for Scotland's TRNSMT

Stereophonics, The Script, James Bay and Jessie J

TRNSMT will extend its transmission in 2018 with five exciting festival events and today, festival organisers DF Concerts reveal even more acts set to play Glasgow Green next summer including headliners Stereophonics, plus very special guests The Script, James Bay and Jessie J on Friday 29th June 2018.  
Welsh heroes and one of Great Britain’s best live bands Stereophonics will take to the TRNSMT stage for the first time next summer on the opening day of the festival, bringing huge hits and festival favourites from a career spanning two decades. With ten studio albums under the belt, six of which were UK number ones, there will be no shortage of singalongs on display during the Stereophonics’ set. 
"TRNSMT line-up looks like a great weekend for all! Happy to be headlining the Friday and getting another chance to play in front of the beautiful always up for it Scottish crowds!"

Irish trio The Script join TRNSMT’s opening day line-up, set to bring a dose of acclaimed pop rock to Glasgow Green. Releasing their fifth album Freedom Child in September 2017, The Script will perform hits such as ‘Rain’, ‘Hall of Fame’ and ‘For the First Time’ for their Scottish fans. The Script have no shortage of accolades with four UK number one albums, a support slot for U2 in their hometown stadium Croke Park and festival slots around the world.

Joining Stereophonics and The Script on 29th June 2018 is James Bay. From the moment that he was announced as winner of the BRITS Critics’ Choice Award in 2015, to 12 months later when he was nominated for 4 prestigious awards in the 2016 BRITS ceremony, James Bay’s journey has been exciting. His debut album, Chaos and The Calm, entered the UK charts at No.1 in March 2015 and stayed in the top 20 for a staggering 40 weeks, reaching platinum status in the UK. Few artists manage to achieve so much on their debut record but then James Bay is a singular modern talent, a lightening–in-a-bottle performer that’s instantly connected with so many audiences around the world. For this Hertfordshire troubadour this is just the beginning.

Completing the latest announcement is singer-songwriter Jessie J who will bring her hip-hop and R&B vibes to Glasgow in June, also joining the bill on Friday 29th June 2018. Jessie J’s debut album in 2011 spawned massive singles such as ‘Do It Like a Dude’ and ‘Price Tag’, which topped the charts in over 19 countries. Multi-platinum collaboration ‘Bang Bang’ saw Jessie join forces with fellow queens of pop Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande and showcased Jessie’s powerful mix of soulful vocals with hip-hop beats. With the announcement of her fourth album R.O.S.E and release of her single ‘Queen’ in recent weeks, Jessie J ‘s powerhouse act is well and truly back.

Last week, TRNSMT announced Liam Gallagher will play his first ever outdoor Scottish gig on Saturday 30th June 2018, joined by fellow British rock Courteeners, Wolf Alice and J Hus. In a line-up that celebrates the cream of the British crop right now, the acts are set to bring an iconic electric atmosphere to Glasgow Green next summer.
Today marks the second host of announcements offering music fans a taste of what’s to come at five TRNSMT events next summer.

“Today’s announcement of headliners Stereophonics plus The Script, James Bay and Jessie J brings yet another brilliant taster of TRNSMT 2018.  We were delighted to bring the news of Liam Gallagher’s headline show to the masses earlier last week and TRNSMT’s line-up is shaping up to be a brilliant celebration of world-class bands and local talent, over two weekends, for the first-ever time in Glasgow.”
Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts
