All new TRNSMT Festival proves big hit with music fans
Tuesday 08 August, 2017
Over the years, Field and Lawn has helped festivals of all shapes and sizes with their marquee structure requirements. Many of these festivals have been running for years and we are always delighted to be welcomed back to the unique atmosphere of each one. However, 2017 brought something a little bit special to the Field and Lawn Scotland office.
TRNSMT Festival, held in Glasgow Green at the start of July, saw over 80,000 music fans basking in the glorious, if brief, Scottish sunshine while enjoying performances from their favourite artists - Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro to name but a few! With such a stellar line up, you would think that this festival has been running for years. However, 2017 actually marked the inaugural TRNSMT festival and, following this year’s impressive turnout, plans are now underway for 2018.
It was a pleasure for the Field and Lawn team to be involved in such an exciting event. Though TRNSMT is brand new to the festival scene, this didn’t mean that their marquee structure requirement was a small order!
Field and Lawn provided over 3,900 sqm of space for a variety of uses. From catering tents to cocktail bars, rainbow rooms to Radiohead’s kitchen, everything was covered (literally)!
It was fantastic to see this new and exciting festival kick off and to be met with such high praise and visitor numbers. With 2018 plans now in the mix, we can’t wait to see where the TRNSMT Festival will go from here.
