The new Scottish festival has been scheduled on the weekend that T in the Park would have traditionally taken place.
TRNSMT festival announced its stellar line-up last night (31 January), confirming Radiohead, Kasabian, and Biffy Clyro as their headliners.
But organiser Geoff Ellis has spoken out against rumours that the Glasgow Green festival could replace T in The Park for good, after the latter event was forced to "take a break" in 2017.
When asked by BBC Newsbeat about the reports, Ellis - who is part of the team behind both festivals - replied: "I don't think you can replace T in the Park".
He added: "TRNSMT is on the same weekend that T in the Park would traditionally have been on, but I think that's where the similarities end.
However, Ellis did tease a possible return for T in The Park and TRNSMT in the same year, though he maintained they would never take place at the same time.
"Next year maybe we'll run a camping festival and have TRNSMT in the city centre as well," he revealed. "But let's see how this year goes first."
He added: "Obviously we wouldn't want to run them on the same weekend, but there's a big overlap in appeal and the two are very separate as well.
