Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said the organisers had been "very responsible" to make the event as safe as they could.

The 2022 event will see Paulo Nutini's first performance at TRNSMT.

It will also mark the return of Lewis Capaldi, who was due to perform at this year's event but had to withdraw when the July date was switched to September because of the pandemic.

Tickets for the 2022 event go on sale from 09:00 on Wednesday.
