Scottish festivals set to make their return this summer


AFTER a year hiatus, two Scottish festivals are making their awaited return to the music scene this summer.

Edinburgh Summer Sessions and TRNSMT are making a comeback after the two events were cancelled last year due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The two festivals that take place later in the year hope to lift spirits after months of lockdown.

The capital city will once again enjoy live music as the Summer Sessions return to Princes Street Gardens.

The iconic location will host musical stars such as Tom Jones, Anne-Marie and recent Mercury prize winner Michael Kiwanuka.

The summer sessions take place from the 6th to the 15th of August and will provide people in the Scottish capital an opportunity to soak up the festival atmosphere.

Glasgow’s festival TRNSMT is also making a return this year as the festival will bring music to Glasgow Green once again.

The festival will be held over three days and will feature acts such as Courteeners, Liam Gallagher and the The Chemical Brothers. 

Music fans will be able to see a variety of acts on the Main Stage, King Tut’s Stage and the River Stage from the 10th to the 12th of September.

It’s presently unclear what will happen in regards to Covid-19 guidelines within the festivals, with the Scottish Government road map suggesting that Scotland will move into level zero by the end of June.

Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport Jeane Freeman told BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland that “they were also looking at how the documentation might be used” to see who can and can’t go to the festivals.
