T in the Park 2013

Over 12th – 14th July 2013, 85,000 music fans per day will descend on the fields of Kinross to experience the 20th year of T in the Park.

With an incredible line-up of seminal artists and the hottest chart topping and stadium filling acts from across the globe already confirmed for the 20th year bill, today (Monday 18th February) festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are thrilled to add a stellar array of artists to the line-up, which is quickly becoming one of the bills to beat this summer.

After being crowned Pollstar’s ‘International Music Festival of the Year’ at a prestigious LA awards ceremony last week, T in the Park is back and celebrating its 20th year milestone in magnificent style over 12th – 14th July. Joining the ultra-impressive line-up which already boasts Main Stage headliners Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers, plus electronic pioneers Kraftwerk alongside The Script, Richie Hawtin, alt-J, Azealia Banks and more are: Adam Beyer, Bastille, Ben Klock & Marcel Dettmann (b2b), British Sea Power, Chase and Status, CHVRCHES, Claude VonStroke, The Courteeners, Deacon Blue, Disclosure, Dizzee Rascal, DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter & Mark Farina (b2b), Eats Everything, Editors, Emeli Sandé, Everything Everything, Frank Turner, The Fratellis, Frightened Rabbit, The Heavy, Hot Natured, Imagine Dragons, Jackmaster, Jake Bugg, Joy Orbison, Labrinth, The Lumineers, Miles Kane, Modest Mouse, Modestep, Nina Kraviz, Nina Nesbitt, Noah and the Whale, Ocean Colour Scene, Of Monsters and Men, The Original Rudeboys, Palma Violets, Paloma Faith, Peace, The Proclaimers, Rudimental, Seth Troxler, Silicone Soul, Slam, Stereophonics, The Strypes, Tom Odell, Twin Atlantic, Two Door Cinema Club, The View, Villagers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The 1975, with many more to be announced…

With a back catalogue packed with epic festival anthems, Stereophonics are big T in the Park favourites. Having played to massive crowds world-wide and chalking up five UK number one albums along the way, their Best Of compilation A Decade In the Sun sold over a million copies in 2008. With a brand new album Graffiti on the Train on the way in March, they’ll return to T in the Park ready to showcase new material as well as their greatest hits – cue mass singalongs from the Kinross crowd.

Returning to cement their reputation as one of the best festival acts on the circuit, drum’n’bass producers Chase and Status will get the 20th year party well and truly started. Having swiftly risen from underground urban phenomenon to become one of the UK’s biggest crossover acts, they’re in demand across the world over as producers and as a phenomenal live act. Following the multi-platinum success of previous records, their third studio album is due for release this summer.

Glasgow trio CHVRCHES’ blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and barbed pop hooks came to the fore in their debut single The Mother We Share (as it also did in Lies, their first track that seeped onto the internet earlier in the year). Voted number 5 in the BBC Sound of 2013, and number 2 in the UK Blog Sound of 2013, their T in the Park debut is not to be missed.

The leading lights of UK dance music, Disclosure are spearheading an uprising of exciting young producers. Following the top 20 success of breakthrough hit Latch, the Lawrence brothers are currently working on their debut album, and will bring their trademark beats and slick house to T in the Park this July.

Since winning the Mercury Prize with his debut album in 2003, Dizzee Rascal has enjoyed a stratospheric rise to the top of the charts with a host of smash hit number 1 singles. The South-London rapper has collaborated with some of the world’s biggest stars, and is currently putting the finishing touches to his fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2009’s platinum selling Tongue n’ Cheek.

Editors are back with a new album this summer. The band have been busy recording tracks for their fourth album in Nashville, and will showcase brand new material alongside classic songs from their double platinum debut The Back Room and two number one follow up albums. Ed from Editors said:

“It is our pleasure to be coming back up to T in the Park this summer, after what seems like an age. Editors have undergone some changes in the last 12 months, but we have come out the other side a more determined band with a bunch of new songs that we think you are going to like. We can’t wait to get back amongst it with some special festival crowds, and where could be a better place to do that than T in the Park?”

After selling out a headline Wembley Arena show and stunning T in the Parkers last year with a spell-binding set which proved exactly why his honest and passionate folk/punk has won him so many fans, Frank Turner is heading back to Kinross this summer, telling fans: “I’m very pleased to be heading back north of the border this summer – T in the Park is always great, like all Scottish shows in general.”

Frightened Rabbit released their hotly anticipated fourth album Pedestrian Verse earlier this month to widespread critical acclaim, with the record entering the UK album chart at number 9 last week. Adored on their native Scottish soil, the band’s frank, poetic lyrics and intense live sets have also won them a massive Stateside following, and they make a triumphant return to T in the Park this July.

Jamie Jones and Lee Foss bring their hugely acclaimed Hot Natured collective to make their T in the Park debut at the 20th year celebrations. Their label Hot Creations is one of the most popular outlets for house and techno and their recently launched Paradise nights at Ibiza’s top underground club DC10 has helped cement their position as one of the scene’s leading outfits. In 2011, Jones earned the coveted title of Number 1 DJ in the world in Resident Advisor’s prestigious poll, and Hot Natured’s T in the Park set is not to be missed.

T in the Park is delighted to welcome back Labrinth and the feeling is mutual, with the Hackney born superstar saying: “T in the Park is one of my favourite festivals to play. The crowd is always on fire and I KNOW this year is not going to be any different!”  Labrinth’s debut album Electronic Earth spawned the massive smash hit singles Earthquake featuring Tinie Tempah and Last Time, before he hit the number one spot with Beneath Your Beautiful featuring fellow T in the Park star, Emeli Sandé.

The Lumineers will bring their glorious rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve folk rock to the fields of Kinross for the 20th year of T in the Park. The band’s eponymous debut album has won widespread acclaim for its timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics. With two prestigious Grammy nominations under their belt, their huge single Ho Hey soared into the UK top ten last year.

Modest Mouse enjoyed massive breakthrough success with their 2004 album Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which included the huge hit Float On, earned the band two Grammy nominations and sold over 1.5 million copies. The Washington group bring their epic indie anthems back to Kinross this July.

After bursting on to the scene with the irresistibly catchy 5 Years Time, Noah and the Whale have gone from strength to strength. Their third album Last Night On Earth, went on to become one of the 2011’s biggest sellers, achieving platinum status and producing the hit single L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. They release its eagerly awaited follow-up Heart of Nowhere this May.

There’s a major buzz surrounding indie four-piece Palma Violets right now. Their single Best Of Friends was voted NME’s track of 2012, with Step Up for the Cool Cats being named Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record. The band featured on the BBC’s Sound of 2013 longlist and release their hugely anticipated debut album next week.

Joining this year’s glittering line-up are London-based four-piece, Rudimental. The group rocketed to success in 2012 when their single Feel the Love topped the UK singles chart. Since then they’ve enjoyed continued success with single Not Giving In, and they’re sure to go down a storm with the legendary Kinross crowd.

Glasgow’s Twin Atlantic won a huge, international fanbase with their 2009 mini-album Vivarium. Its follow-up Free cemented their reputation as one of the biggest bands to emerge from Scotland within recent years, with its title track famously featuring as the soundtrack to the 2012 Red Bull Stratos space jump by Felix Baumgartner. A phenomenal live act, they’re sure to receive a warm welcome back to T in the Park from a home crowd.

New York City’s hottest art-punk trio Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs are back this April with their hugely anticipated fourth album Mosquito. All three of its predecessors received Grammy nominations, with debut Fever to Tell hailed by Rolling Stone, Pitchfork Media, and NME as one of the finest of the decade. An awesome live act known for their raw, intense live shows, they sent the crowd into a frenzy during their 2009 T in the Park appearance when they invited the East Kilbride Pipe Band to join them on stage for a thrilling performance of Skeletons.  Expect yet more fireworks when they make their return to Kinross this July.

T in the Park organisers have also today revealed that the Arcadia Afterburner will be a brand new addition to the site the year. The spectacular mechanical, fire-breathing structure will become the place to party late into the night, in the heart of Sunset Strip.

With an international line-up of chart toppers, Grammy winners, pioneering trailblazers, rising stars and Scotland’s finest home-grown heroes, the T in the Park 2013 bill is off to a roaring start.

Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “When 17,000 fans joined us at Strathclyde Park for the inaugural T in the Park in 1994, I don’t think anyone could have imagined how the festival would grow and evolve. We are thrilled to be welcoming some of the world’s greatest artists to Kinross this July for our 20th edition, with a truly diverse line-up of seminal artists, global stars and the most exciting new breakthrough talent.

“Every year, artists tell us that our audience is like no other and that they love coming to T in the Park to play in front of one of the most passionate and enthusiastic crowds in the world. Earlier this month, T in the Park was named Pollstar’s International Music Festival of the Year and I believe we have our fans to thank for this prestigious award. It’s the legendary atmosphere that makes this festival special, and we can’t wait to celebrate our 20th year with the greatest audience in the world this July.”

George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager, said: “What began in 1994 as a founding partnership between Tennent’s Lager and T in the Park, has become a hugely successful, long-standing relationship. When T in the Park began, Tennent’s and DF Concerts shared an ambition and vision for the festival, and we are thrilled to be part of a world renowned event which attracts the world’s finest musical talent. We are exceptionally proud to have been the T in T in the Park since the start and our passion for live music remains strong in the festival’s 20th year.”

The Stone Roses, Kasabian & Snow Patrol Headline T In The Park 2012

The Stone Roses, Kasabian & Snow Patrol Headline T In The Park 2012
T In The Park 2012

Firm favourites with festival crowds Snow Patrol & Kasabian will join The Stone Roses in headlining the Main Stage at this year’s T In The Park summer music festival.

Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody hailed T in the Park as “the best weekend ever” when the band gave one of the most memorable T in the Park headline performances to date, in 2009. Since T in the Park first booked an unknown Snow Patrol in 1999, the band have soared to international stardom and gone on to sell in excess of 11 million albums worldwide.

Having announced their ‘live resurrection’, The Stone Roses will undoubtedly provide the seminal music moment of the summer with their hugely anticipated headline performance at T in the Park 2012.  All eyes will be on Balado when the Manchester legends take to the stage for a very rare UK festival appearance and their only live show in Scotland, not to mention a truly historic moment for T in the Park.

Kasabian are certainly on fire right now, with their fourth studio album Velociraptor taking the group to stratospheric new levels. The follow-up to the acclaimed West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, the current album was recorded in Leicester, mixed in San Francisco and written and produced by the group’s guitarist Sergio Pizzorno.

The headliners join an already stellar group of top top acts confirmed for T in the Park 2012, including Florence + the Machine, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Vaccines, Two Door Cinema Club, The Maccabees, Frank Turner, Miles Kane, The Horrors and Maverick Sabre.

Newly announced Tinie Tempah is undoubtedly one of the freshest and biggest stars to come out of Britain in the past two years.  Since his debut album Disc-Overy debuted at No. 1, preceded by two smash hit No.1 singles Pass Out and Written in the Stars, the sensational solo star has fast become one of the most award-winning, best-selling performers of recent times.

Bernard Sumner, Gillian Gilbert, Stephen Morris, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman – the newly reformed New Order – are back together and will return to Balado, having last performed at T in the Park in 2005. One of the most highly influential and critically acclaimed bands of the 1980’s, New Order were the pioneering force behind electronic music, responsible for 1983 hit Blue Monday, the best-selling 12 inch single of all time. Tracks such as True Faith and Regret have influenced generations of hit making musicians ever since. This unmissable set at
T in the Park is guaranteed to be worth the wait!

Bernard Sumner, New Order frontman, said:

“It’s been 7 years since we played in Scotland, up at ‘T’, and we had a brilliant time. It was as much of a surprise to us as it was to our fans when Brandon from The Killers joined us onstage for Crystal, so it’s gonna be hard to top that one, but we’ll do our best to make sure it’s another memorable night for everyone. See you all soon!”

David Guetta is arguably one of the world’s most popular DJ’s and one of the most sought after music producers.  Hailing from France, he has sold over 3 million albums and 15 million singles across the globe.   For fifth studio album Nothing But the Beat, Guetta introduced rock influences to his dance beats and upped the ante yet again with smash hit tracks Where Them Girls At and Without You.  David Guetta boasts some of the biggest tunes in the business right now and will be blasting them loud at Balado this summer.

Calvin Harris has gone from producing tracks in his bedroom in Dumfries to internationally renowned DJ, producer, singer, songwriter phenomenon.  Calvin’s second album Ready For the Weekend went straight to the No.1 spot and spawned massive hit after hit single, gaining him further attention from fans as well artists in demand of his record producing skills.  Credited for being the most successful songwriter in the UK singles chart in 2011 and following a stint on tour with Rhianna, the pair collaborated on smash hit single We Found Love, which catapulted them to the to the top of the charts the world over. Calvin Harris is close to T in the Park’s heart and fans will surely agree that it feels so good to have him back at Balado.

Elbow are a band renowned for their stunning songwriting ability as well as their amazing live performances.  Since forming in 1990, the band have been recognised for both, achieving an accolade of awards including two Ivor Novello Awards  for best contemporary song and best song musically and lyrically for the singles Grounds for Divorce and One Day Like This respectively. The Bury five-piece also won the prestigious Mercury Music Prize for their album The Seldom Seen Kid. 2012 will be another big year for Elbow as they have been chosen to provide the soundtrack to BBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games, as well as delivering a standout set at
T in the Park.

Having been raised in Aberdeen and studied at the University of Glasgow, Emeli Sandé is a Scots talent to be truly proud of.  Emeli’s debut album Our Version of Events sold more than 100,000 copies in the last week alone, putting her in the lead in terms of sales of any other British artist this year. With her debut album currently at No.1 and as the winner of this year’s Brits Critics’ Choice Award, Emeli Sandé has proved herself to be one of the most talented and respected singer/songwriters of our time and her debut performance at T in the Park is not to be missed.

T in the Park 2010

T in the Park is the largest music festival to be held in Scotland, and along with Glastonbury, V Festival, the Reading and Leeds festivals attracts big crowds and top artists from around the world.  It is one of the undisputed UK music festival highlights of the summer; and so it comes as no surprise to know that tickets for the festival have all sold out.

T in the Park has three main stages and a dance tent; and there are great headline acts booked for them all to offer something for every music taste.

Main Stage
Main Stage headliners for this year’s T in the Park are Muse, Eminem and Kasabian. While Muse and Kasabian are regular UK music festival favourites, this will be Eminem’s first UK music festival headlining show and follows the success of Jay-Z’s controversial Glastonbury headline show in 2008.

Muse headline Friday night with support coming from the likes of trance dance favourites Faithless, Paloma Faith and The Big Pink. On Saturday, Eminem will headline the main stage with performances throughout the day from the likes of Stereophonics, Paolo Nutini, Vampire Weekend and the ever popular Proclaimers.  While on Sunday, Kasabian headline the main stage for the first time and receive great support from Jay-Z, Biffy Clyro and Dizzee Rascal among others.  What a climatic high that will be!

Radio 1 / NME Stage
Headline acts on the much coveted Radio 1 / NME Stage are The Black Eyed Peas, The Prodigy and Madness.  On Friday Black Eyed Peas will be supported by Florence & the Machine, Jamie T and The Temper Trap, with more to be confirmed.  On Saturday, T in the Park festival favourites, The Prodigy will no doubt out-strobe and out-stare everyone else and get support from the likes of 30 Seconds to Mars, The Courteeners, The Black Keys and Shed Seven.  While on Sunday, the festival will no doubt be in a party mood when Madness headline with support from Groove Armada, The Cribs, Baby Shambles, among others.

Dance Tent
This year the dance tent acts will have to compete with rappers Jay-Z and Eminem among others playing on the main stages on Saturday and Sunday.  But with Plastikman, Four Tet and Tricky all playing a live sets and a great line-up of A-list DJ’s including Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Erol Alkan, Dubfire, Adam Beyer, Greg Wilson and Andrew Weatherall among others playing anything and everything from techno to dub, the only problem will be how punters will manage to seee all their favourite acts!

T in the Park will be held at Balado in Kinross-shire between Friday 9th and Sunday 11th July.

Kasabian Promo Video for Vlad The Impaler

Kasabian - Vlad The Impaler
Kasabian - Vlad The Impaler

Kasabian launch into 2010 with their explosive highly charged new single ‘Vlad The Impaler’, taken from their No.1 album of the year ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, which has sold over 500,000 copies so far.

The album is one of the biggest selling of the year and yielded the band ‘Best Album’ at this year’s Q Awards as well featuring highly in a whole host of magazine and newspaper’s album of the year lists.

Following Kasabian’s seismic November arena tour, which was preceded by a 20-date summer run and 9 massive stadium shows with Oasis, they resume touring duties in Australia for a series of New Year ‘Big Day Out’ gigs.

Wrtten by Serge Pizzorno and co-produced by Serge and Dan The Automator ‘Vlad The Impaler’ is one of many highlights on the record. A turbo-charged rock anthem and full on rant from start to finish sped along by Tom Meighan’s pulsing vocal, Serge’s bar-raising musical vision, Chris Edwards’ mesmerising basslines and Ian Matthews’ galloping drums.

“Vlad is a total chaos tune,” enthuses Serge. “It’s a call out to all our people, the ones who are tuned into our radio station.”

Kasabian – Serge Pizzorno (Songwriter, Guitar, Vocals), Tom Meighan (Vocals), Chris Edwards (Bass) and Ian Matthews (Drums) have recently been announced as the headliners for T in the Park next year. It’s already set to be one of the musical highlights for 2010.

UK Summer Music Festivals 2009

Over the past few weeks many of the main summer music festivals have announced headline acts, so I thought it might be appropriate at this stage to have a quick music festivals round up.

Glastonbury will play host to possibly the biggest of the summer festivals from Wednesday 24th  – Sunday 28th June. The last of the tickets went on sale  yesterday, and like many of this years festivals, all tickets have now been sold.

The full line-up is still to be confirmed.  And even though many artists are officially stating they will be performing, the only “official” Glastonbury list of artists, so far is Lily Allen, Fleet Foxes, Neil Young, Blur, Bruce Springsteen, Emiliana Torrini, Doves, Franz Ferdinand, The Ting Tings, Echo And The Bunnymen, White Lies and Florence And The Machine.

T in the Park will be held over the weekend of Friday 10th – Sunday 12th July at the Balado Airfield in Kinross-Shire. The Main Stage will play host the headline acts: Kings Of Leon (Friday), The Killers (Saturday) and Snow Patrol & Blur (Sunday). While the Radio One/NME Stage will be headlined by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (Friday), Nine Inch Nails (Saturday) and Keane (Sunday).

Other acts already confirmed to play the various stages and tents include Razorlight, Pet Shop Boys, Elbow, Franz Ferdinand, The Specials, James, Bloc Party, Jane’s Addiction, Paolo Nutini, Florence & The Machine, Ladyhawke, The Script, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lily Allen, Manic Street Preachers, Ting Tings, Katy Perry, Maximo Park, Pendulum, Seasick Steve, James Morrison, Peter Doherty, White Lies and Squeeze.
