NEW ACTS JOIN THE T IN THE PARK BILL AS 6 WEEK COUNTDOWN BEGINS
T in the Park is just 6 weeks away, and with the countdown officially underway and excitement building, festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager have added more acts to the line-up.
The Fancy Dress Friday theme has also been revealed, and in homage to the festival’s picturesque new setting Strathallan Castle, fans will be encouraged to dress up to the theme of the Ultimate Fairy Tale – think King or Queen, Knight or Jester, Dragon or Fairy.
Singer-songwriter The Beach released debut single Thieves earlier this year, capturing the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac (and her predecessor Zane Lowe), receiving airplay on the station. His gorgeous melodies meld epic crescendos and raw emotion. Widely hailed as one to watch, he is one of the most exciting singer-songwriter talents to emerge in recent years.
Elle King is an American recording artist whose musical style encompasses country, soul, folk, rock, and blues. Born in Ohio and raised in Brooklyn, Elle retains her roots in a style that blends those worlds of both grit and mid-western charm. She’s toured with Of Monsters and Men, Ed Sheeran, and James Bay, and ties her old soul and rock ‘n’ roll influences into a sound that’s all her own.
Belfast four-piece And So I Watch You From Afar also make their T in the Park debut this summer. The band released their fourth album Heirs earlier this month – a work of intense focus and adventurous abandon that reaches to the heart of artistic expression, packed with anthemic melodies and infectious hooks.
After 20 stellar years with Feeder – including 8 gold and platinum albums and over 3 million album sales – frontman Grant Nicholas appears as a solo artist. His debut solo record Yorktown Heights evoked the carefree spirit of Laurel Canyon in the ‘70’s while also sounding bang up to date – ambitious, largely acoustic, and full of head-spinning melodies. Its follow-up – the six-track mini-album Black Clouds, was released last month.
Welsh buzz band The Hearts have supported the likes of Paul Weller and Arcade Fire. They released a 2 track EP Run Free at the start of the year, with lead track Lips receiving major airplay on Radio 1 and XFM, and are one to watch at this year’s T in the Park.
Organisers have also revealed that the Slam Tent will be open on the Thursday night, with Animal Farm, Clouds and Ben Sims taking to the decks to get the party well and truly started.
With some of the biggest names in music heading for Scotland this summer, T in the Park’s debut outing at Strathallan Castle is shaping up to be an unmissable weekend over 10th – 12th July.
