Scots love their music festivals. They also like a good drink. Combining the two into a full day (or three) is normally a sure fire means of enjoyment.
However, what Scots don’t appreciate is an alcohol beverage costing more than £5, and festivals tend to veer to that side of the cost spectrum.
As thousands descended to Glasgow Green on Friday for TRNSMT’s first day they were not entirely happy with the drinks prices on offer.
And, as we surely expected, this led to Scottish Twitter going into overdrive to deal with the mixture of outrage and dialect.
@What_cara_said: “The price of drink at Trnsmt makes the O2/classic grand/SWG3 look cheap.”
