Tickets are already selling fast for both gigs at Glasgow Green with Biffy Clyro performing on Thursday, September 9, and TRNSMT running over the weekend until Sunday, September 12.
Up to 50,000 fans are expected at TRNSMT, and a representative of the organiser said it showed Glasgow was “back in business”.
Music lovers will be able to enjoy the outdoor concert on Thursday night which will also have three supporting acts performing live on the main stage before the fourth TRNSMT festival, featuring Liam Gallagher, Twin Atlantic and the Courteeners, launches the following day.
As well as entertainment, festival goers will also be able to enjoy a selection of bars, food stalls, merchandise, a funfair and a VIP area.
The licence application for DF Concerts, which has organised both festivals, was brought before the licensing committee on Wednesday morning.
Speaking on its behalf, legal representative Archie MacIver, said: “There are two events taking place, the first is the Biffy Clyro concert and the second is TRNSMT.
“The hospitality and events industry over the last 18 months has taken a huge battering. It is nice to be able to say that Glasgow is back in business.
“The opening event is Biffy Clyro which has a maximum capacity of 40,000 people and the second TRNSMT has a maximum space of 50,000. Ticket sales are healthy and we are moving in the right direction.
“The Chemical Brothers, Liam Gallagher, the Courteneers and a whole host of other acts will be performing over three stages. There will be a stage for up and coming talents.”
Mr MacIver also highlighted that a lot of work had been done to make the event safe particularly in relation to covid.
More than 140 stand alone sanitation points will also be available for use at Glasgow Green.
He added: “All people attending the events must have tested negative in a lateral flow test no later than 48 hours before attending the festivals and register their test on the Government website.
“This is to prevent people from turning up without the appropriate documentation. Those who don’t have proof of a negative result will be taken to another location and given advice on how to proceed.
“They won’t be cast out onto the streets. Medical advice will be available to people who turn up and indicate they aren’t well.”
Members of the licensing committee were happy with the work that had been done to ensure the events run smoothly.
Chairman councillor Alex Wilson said: “DF Concerts are an outstanding organisation who have picked up and addressed any problems in the past.
“They are one of these organisations that listen to people and make changes that are required. Glasgow badly needs a good shot in the arm especially when it comes to entertainment because we have been starved of it.
“To see these kinds of events coming back to Glasgow is fantastic and I am absolutely delighted that this is the case.”
