The team behind TRNSMT Festival is celebrating a triumphant close to 2017 with a win at the UK Festival Awards last night. TRNSMT was commended in the Best New Festival category and was the only Scottish event shortlisted in that group.

The Best New Festival category was decided by a combination of public vote and main judging panel, at the ceremony that took place in London. TRNSMT was shortlisted in this category alongside 2Q Festival Lincoln, Cotton Clouds Festival, Elrow Town London, HRH Metal and Minety Music Festival.

Geoff Ellis, head of DF Concerts, commented: I am really grateful to everyone who voted for us, the wonderful artists, fantastic audience, Glasgow City Council, and the inspiring hard working team who pulled it all off… and of course the magnificent audience!”

TRNSMT festival took place for the first time in July and will return over two weekends in 2018.
