DISCLOSURE, THE 1975 AND COURTEENERS ANNOUNCED FOR T IN THE PARK
T in the Park festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are delighted to announce that Disclosure, The 1975 and Courteeners will play next year’s festival, which takes place at Strathallan Castle between 8th – 10th July 2016 – making a ticket to the festival the perfect Christmas gift. The Stone Roses have already been announced as the festival’s Friday night headliners.
Another batch of Christmas Earlybird tickets went on sale this morning at 9am, after fans snapped up the initial limited release of tickets in just under 10 minutes earlier this month.
Disclosure’s return to T in the Park is sure to be an epic one, after their mind-blowing headline set on the Radio 1 Stage in 2014. The electronic music duo released their second album Caracal in September, featuring guest appearances from The Weeknd, Lorde, Gregory Porter and Sam Smith, among others. It follows their no.1, platinum-selling debut Settle, which received nominations for the Mercury Prize and a Grammy. They’ll be sure to bring the party vibes to Strathallan Castle next July.
The 1975’s eponymous debut album topped the UK Album Charts in September 2013 when it entered at no.1 and last month, the Manchester four-piece announced their second studio album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. The first single off the new record – Love Me – is currently dominating the airwaves. Their infectious indie pop anthems are the perfect summer festival soundtrack, and are sure to inspire mass sing-alongs when they make their T in the Park return.
Fellow Manchester lads and huge favourites with the T in the Park crowd, Courteeners have also been added to the bill. In 2014 the group achieved their highest chart position to date when their fourth record Concrete Love reached no.3 in the UK album charts. Liam Fray’s sharp songwriting combined with the band’s euphoric pop riffs has fuelled the band’s longevity, and they going from strength to strength, currently playing a string of sold out dates across the country.
Geoff Ellis, Festival Director, said: “We’re hugely excited to announce Disclosure, The 1975 and Courteeners for T in the Park today. All three acts are big favourites with our audience and I’m sure they’ll all bring something pretty special to Strathallan Castle next July. Announcing them now, before we reveal our remaining headliners will give fans an idea of how strong and varied the bill for this year’s festival is going to be. We’re working hard on the rest of the line-up and we can’t wait to see all the T in the Park fans next July.”
George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship, Tennent’s Lager, said: “The line-up for next year’s T in the Park is already shaping up to be a great one, and I’m sure we can look forward to a weekend of phenomenal performances next July. As founding partner, Tennent’s have been the T in T in the Park since the festival began, and we’re incredibly proud to still be a part of the best weekend of the summer, 23 years on.”
