Scotland's newest and biggest music festival, TRNSMT, is to return for a second year.

Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro were the headliners at this year's three-day non-camping event held at Glasgow Green at the weekend.

Organisers took to social media on Tuesday evening to announce that the festival will be held from 6-8 July next year.

A post on Twitter and Facebook said: "Repeat transmission."

T in the Park, which is also organised by DF concerts, took a break this year following difficulties at the new site in Strathallan.

The promoters have yet to announce if it will be back in 2018.

A statement on the TRNSMT website said: "After an incredible first year at Glasgow Green, we are excited to announce that TRNSMT Festival will return to Glasgow Green on 6-8 July 2018.

"Stay tuned for more information."

Organiser Geoff Ellis told the BBC: "It went better than we could have expected for the first year.

He described the event as "a dream come true".
