TRNSMT was one of our festival highlights in 2018, their commitment to creating the perfect inner city festival environment is second to none. The announcement of Arctic Monkeys, who headline on Sunday 1st July, only adds to the excitement surrounding this year’s festival.
Arctic Monkeys, making their long awaited return, have an unrivalled sound which is only suited to the biggest of festivals. They will close the first weekend of the festival alongside Interpol, Blossoms, Miles Kane, Tom Grennan and more.
They join the likes of Stereophonics, The Killers and Liam Gallagher in headlining the festival alongside previously announced acts such as Courteeners, Wolf Alice and more. Arctic Monkeys have been long rumoured for a 2018 return, with an album almost certainly in the pipeline. Having secured give consecutive Number 1 UK albums, a Mercury Prize and 3 Grammy nominations, it is clear that the return of the Sheffield formed group is front page news – they really are one of the country’s finest exports.
“Arctic Monkeys, making their long awaited return, have an unrivalled sound which is only suited to the biggest of festivals.”
Interpol and Blossoms join the famous band at the top of the line up. The Stockport band have experienced rapid rise over the past few years having already gained a number one, high selling debut album. Expect tracks such as the infectious “Charlemagne’ as they bring their unique strand of indie rock to the main stage.
Nothing But Thieves and Declan McKenna both feature. Arctic Monkeys friend and one half of TLSP Miles Kane also makes a long awaited return to Scottish soil. He 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!”
And the final highlight comes in the form of the mighty Tom Grennan. The Eudaemonia favourite is set for a massive year, we wouldn’t be surprised if his upcoming debut album goes all the way to number one. The 22-year-old’s latest single ‘Sober’ made Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World early this month… Clearly, 2018 is gonna be huge for the Bedford born singer/songwriter!
Festival organisers 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.”
