The King Tut’s Stage at TRNSMT Festival 2018 is set to showcase some of Scotland’s finest acts.

Billed as “the ultimate destination for world-class music in Scotland this summer”, TRNSMT Festival have announced the full line-up for their King Tut’s Stage featuring Gun, Fatherson, The Xcerts and Catholic Action taking to the stage over two weekends this June and July. Artists also joining the TRNSMT bill include RAMZ, Hunter & The Bear, Mason Hill, Electric Pyramid, The Academic, The Amorettes, The Slydigs, The Night Café and LUCIA.

TRNSMT Festival 2018 takes place at Glasgow Green on Friday 29th June –  Sunday 1st July and on Friday 6th July and Saturday 8th July.   Headliners are Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, Queen + Adam Lambertand The Killers.  But we turn our focus to the brilliant new acts that will be making their mark on the King Tut’s stage this year.

Headlining the King Tut’s Stage Powered by Utilita Energy on Friday 6th July will be Glasgow rockers Gun.  Celebrating over 30 years in the music industry, the band have toured with some of the biggest names in music including The Rolling Stones, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi.  Dante Gizzi of Gun said: “After the amazing success of last year’s first TRNSMT it’s an absolute honour to play it. You can’t beat a Scottish festival crowd and performing a stone’s throw from where you were brought up, it doesn’t get any better than this.”

Kilmarnock trio Fatherson are the latest exciting Scottish addition for the King Tut’s Stage.  Since forming in 2010, the explosive live band have released two albums which truly resonated with fans, shown clearly at the sold out shows in late 2017 the trio performed at Glasgow’s Art School.

Fatherson said: “We’re really excited to play this year’s TRNSMT festival. We’ve been quietly working on new music for the past year – so to be back playing our first festival in a long time, in our home city should be really special.”  Fatherson join Sigrid, King No-One, Dermot Kennedy, Confidence Man, The Magic Gang and Island on Sunday 1st July at TRNSMT.

Joining the TRNSMT line-up on Friday 6th July are distorted-pop rockers The Xcerts. The Aberdonian trio released their much-anticipated and widely-acclaimed album Hold On To Your Heart earlier this year, making their UK Top 40 debut.

Glasgow indie glam-rock four-piece Catholic Action join TRNSMT’s final day, Sunday 8th July, as they make their King Tut’s Stage debut in Glasgow Green. The Glasgow four-piece released their debut album, In Memory Of in 2017.

Chris McCrory of Catholic Action said: “I was at TRNSMT for Radiohead last year, and the festival was great – it had a really good atmosphere. We’re looking forward to being a part of that.
