TRSNMT Festival has now donated more than £120,000 to charity and the local community since its inception in 2017.

Tens of thousands of pounds were raised during this year’s event on Glasgow Green as charities embraced the party atmosphere with special fundraising events.

The festival donated a total of 192 tickets to 25 charities. Among the those to benefit was Samaritans, with almost 400 people engaging with volunteers to find out more about the charity’s work.

Action for Children and St Andrew’s First Aid were both at the festival too, offering glitter face painting services, while Police Scotland Youth Volunteers made the most of the newly introduced cup deposit scheme to collect nearly 7000 cups, raising £672 in the process.

Scottish Women Inventing Music, a community of musicians and industry professionals campaigning for equality, were also at this year’s event to raise awareness of the organisation.

A Samaritans spokesperson said: “This was a great opportunity for our volunteers to provide emotional support directly on site to those who needed to talk. We were able to engage with festival goers and explain our service, helping raise awareness of what we do.

“We wanted to be there for anyone in distress, despair or needing to talk things through. We’re working together to make sure fewer people die by suicide. Thanks for having us TRNSMT.”

As well as tickets, TRNSMT donated three signed guitars to Action for Children, who will auction them off this year.

DF Concerts & Events, which manages TRNSMT, donated a further 15 guitars to Riverbank Primary, which opens this month in Glasgow, as well as 18 picnic benches donated to Glasgow Green as a means of saying thank you to park users for their support of the event.

Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts & Events, said: “Now in its third year, TRNSMT is an essential part of Glasgow’s culture, so it’s only fitting that we give back to local charities as well as larger ones that benefit the wider community. Since the beginning, we’ve been working closely with a number of organisations each year, through gifting tickets to raise money, or providing a dedicated space to speak directly to some of the 150,000 music fans at TRNSMT.

“We’re thrilled that the total amount of money donated through TRNSMT is now over £120,000 and that the effects of the event are reaching so many people either directly or indirectly. The continued support that we receive for the event is testament to the people of Glasgow.”

TRNSMT has also gifted nearly 1200 tickets to carers accompanying music fans using the accessible platform. Three young girls on the platform made headlines after a video was posted of them signing to Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved, which they had been practising for weeks.
