Arctic Monkeys announced as headliners for TRNSMT festival, get presale tickets

Sheffield group will be joined by Interpol and Blossoms at Glasgow Green on Sun 1 Jul

Arctic Monkeys have been revealed as the fourth headliner for this year's TRNSMT festival. The group will top the bill at Glasgow Green on Sun 1 Jul, with presale tickets available from Tue 30 Jan, and tickets on general sale on Thu 1 Feb.

Straight outta Sheffield, the one time indie upstarts, now arena giants, are expected to return in 2018 with their sixth studio album – their first since 2013's hugely successful AM.

Also performing at the festival on Sun 1 Jul are New York's favourite well dressed gloomy post-punkers – Interpol and Stockport indie chart-toppers Blossoms. Alex Turner's Last Shadow Puppets partner Miles Kane is also taking a trip to Glasgow for the festival.

The announcement means only one headline act is still to be announced for the festival, with Arctic Monkeys following Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher and The Killers at the top of the bill.

Fri 29 Jun – Stereophonics, The Script, James Bay, Kodaline, Jessie J
Sat 30 Jun – Liam Gallagher, Courteeners, Wolf Alice, J Hus, Krept x Konan
Sun 1 Jul – Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, Blossoms, Nothing But Thieves, Declan McKenna, Miles Kane, Tom Grennan
Fri 6 Jul – TBA
Sun 8 Jul – The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, CHVRCHES

Presale tickets for Arctic Monkeys' performance are available at 9am on Tue 30 Jan through the TRNSMT website. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Thu 1 Feb.
