The festival kicks off this week 🎶
  • TRNSMT 2024 is set to take place this week at Glasgow Green (July 12-14 2024)
  • This year’s headliners include Liam Gallagher, Gerry Cinnamon and Calvin Harris
  • But with the Met Office forecast rain for the first half of the week, will the wet weather ease off for this weekend?
  • What items are prohibited and banned from TRNSMT this year - and what to do if you need to bring essential medication?

This weekend is a busy one for music; while London celebrates everything hip-hop and R&B with Wireless, Glasgow Green welcomes revellers to TRNSMT 2024. 

The festival, the successor to the beloved T In The Park event, is set to see Liam Gallagher, Gerry Cinnamon and Calvin Harris headline the event from Friday (July 12 2024), with big names including Garbage, The Mary Wallopers, Sugababes and Courteeners rounding out this year’s eclectic line up.

But as many waking up in Glasgow know, it’s not been incredibly productive weather to be stood out watching your favourite acts - less you enjoy the muddy climates of a music festival or, to quote Shirley Manson, you’re “Only Happy When It Rains.”

But according to the Met Office, there might be a bright spot during the week that might mean TRNSMT this year, unlike the fate that befell several Download Festival revellers earlier in the year, might not be a complete washout. 

So what’s the meteorological services forecast for the remainder of the week in Glasgow, and what items (aside from an obligatory poncho) are not to be brought to TRNSMT this year, for the risk of having those items confiscated and even worse - not being let through the gates when they open this weekend? 

What is the weather forecast for TRNSMT currently?

Although the first half of the week in Glasgow looks very wet, the Met Office is forecasting that the weather over TRNSMT weekend is starting to fine up.
