Taking over from the much-missed T in the Park, the first TRNSMT music festival took place in 2017 when Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro headlined.

Since then the three-day celebration of music has returned four more times – featuring the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Queen, The Strokes and Lewis Capaldi – and the 6th edition will take place at Glasgow Green this year.

Here’s everything you need to know.

An additional booking fee is payable on all tickets.

What do the VIP tickets get you?

There are three types of VIP ticket at TRNSMT 2023 – here’s what they get you:


Access to the TRNSMT VIP Garden which will host bars, food outlets, seating, DJs, upgraded toilets and extended opening hours.


Access to the TRNSMT VIP Garden plus a dedicated bar near the front pen right next to the stage – which you can walk into at any time.

Ultimate VIP

Access to the TRNSMT VIP Garden, the front pen and the front pen bar, plus enjoying the same food as the artists, dix free drinks, a host to fetch you food and drink, and access to the Ultimate Lounge.

How can I access the golden circle?

Now called the ‘front pen’ only VIP+ and Ultimate VIP ticket holders will have guaranteed access to the cordoned-off area in front of the stage.

For everybody else, access will be on a ‘first come first served’ basis – so if you want to get close to any of the acts but don’t want to pay extra you’d better get there early.
