Texas, The Darkness and The Temperance Movement also announced for main stage at Glasgow Green on Fri 6 Jul
Featuring Roger Taylor and Brian May from the original lineup, the group have been touring with the former American Idol runner-up as singer since 2009. They'll bring some of the most memorable pop songs of all time to Glasgow Green, with the likes of 'We Will Rock You', 'We Are The Champions' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' sure to be sung heartily by tens of thousands of punters.
Also performing on the second friday at TRNSMT are Texas. Sharleen Spiteri and band are one of Scotland's biggest groups. Since their debut single 'I Don't Want a Lover', the band have sold 40 million albums, had 13 top 10 UK singles and scored three number one albums.
The Darkness, who headlined T In The Park back in 2004 after David Bowie was forced to cancel, will bring their rousing glam rock to the party, with local favourites The Temperance Movement also set to rock the main stage.
Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts said: 'We are absolutely delighted to announce the addition of Queen + Adam Lambert to the TRNSMT line-up as the final headliner across the two weekends.
'As bona fide music legends, Queen + Adam Lambert's TRNSMT show promises to be a spectacular highlight in Scotland's music calendar this summer - I'm sure the atmosphere will be electric when they step on stage.
'Today's announcement completes the headliners for all five days of TRNSMT Festival, with the rest of the bill being finalised over the coming weeks.'
