Connor Fyfe is the youngest artist to play this year’s TRNSMT festival at just fifteen years old – and he admits he is ready for it.
Connor who was one half of the viral train weans with Robyn Ashcroft will make his TRNSMT debut on Sunday 10 th July after supporting The Snuts on their recent tour.
He said of being picked to play the huge Glasgow Green fest: ” I was buzzin to go this year to see the rest of the line up, but to be asked to play is mental man! It feels classy and I’m ready for it!’
Cinch presents TRNSMT Festival revealed Saint PHNX, Baby Strange, Rianne Downey, The Reytons, Stone plus many more who join Paolo Nutini, Lewis Capaldi, The Strokes, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, and recent Brit Award winners Wolf Alice and Sam Fender for the line up.
Scottish duo Saint PHNX will play Friday and the TikTok famous brothers from Lanarkshire, who recently signed to Atlantic Records, will take to the King Tut’s stage this year after hitting the top spot on the Scottish chart with their most recent release ‘Happy Place’ last week.
Post punk band Stone, who exploded onto last year’s festival stages with raucous anthems following their 2020 breakout single ‘Leave It Out’, will also perform on the River Stage alongside Finn Askew, one of NME’s essential emerging artists of 2022, alternative indie duo Dead Pony and London based singer-songwriter Etta Marcus.
Indie rockers Baby Strange will also take to the River Stage on Saturday July 9. The trio last year released their critically acclaimed second album Land of Nothing.
The River Stage will also see Parliamo, the Perthshire ‘underground pop’ band with an explosive live reputation, singer songwriter George O’Hanlon who released his emotive debut EP, Storm last year and Edinburgh’s own riot girl band, Medicine Cabinet and Irish singer-songwriter CMAT.
Jack from Parliamo said: ” To play Scotland’s biggest festival is a dream come true for Parliamo, we can’t wait to lay our tunes to a wider audience of music fans from Scotland and further afield that will hopefully jump right on board the wagon of madness that is Parliamo. It’s a massive opportunity for us and we’ll be going full throttle for it.”
Joining Sunday’s line-up are multifaceted duo Everyone You Know who will bring their eclectic sound that incorporates everything from punk to garage to Glasgow Green this July.
They will be joined by indie rockers The Reytons, Glaswegian singer-songwriter Rianne Downey; and Bonnie Kemplay who, last year, claimed the top spot ahead of over 10,000 entries from some of the UK’s very best undiscovered and under the radar musicians, to land an eleven in a lifetime opportunity to perform in the world-famous Radio 1 Live Lounge .
Bonnie will be performing alongside Glaswegian singer-songwriter and flutist Alex Amor, as well as Scottish pop star Dylan Fraser who was recently signed to Atlantic Records and Irish singer-songwriter Luz.
