Queen are the final headliner to be confirmed for the festival, which has been extended to a five-day event this summer, following Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers.

The date will be Queen’s only festival appearance in the UK this summer and will follow an extensive European tour.

TRNSMT festival director Geoff Ellis said: “As bona fide music legends, Queen’s show promises to be a spectacular highlight in Scotland’s music calendar this summer.”
