Who’s ready for a cup of T (sorry, not sorry)?
This weekend is T in the Park, Scotland’s biggest music festival being held at Balado, Kinross-Shire, Scotland. It’s going to be a weekend of huge acts, lots of rain and inevitably lots of mud. So grab your wellies and macs and check out our Need to Know Guide to make sure you’re ready!
What’s T in the Park?
T in the Park is Scotland’s biggest festival which celebrated its 20th Anniversary last year. The festival has grown from a two day 17,000 strong festival to a three day extravaganza with 85,000 festival goers in attendance per day. The bands this year are pretty huge as well, with T in the Park’s usual emphasis on Scottish grown bands rounding out a full line-up. Needless to say any festival that can claim to have rock, techno, jazz, house, and ceilidh music all under one banner is worthy of your attention.
Calvin Harris, Arctic Monkeys and Scotland’s own Biffy Clyro will be headlining the Main Stage across the weekend. If somehow none of those are appealing (and we know you’re lying, but it’s alright) there’s a huge range of other acts, genres and styles for you to choose from. Pixies, Elbow, Chvrches, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran and so many more will all be making an appearance. Also Franz Ferdinand will be there playing a smaller stage and they’re not even headlining it – what happened guys? Check out the full line up here.
What’s the weather meant to be like?
The all knowing Yahoo! Weather App is reporting a gorgeous if cloudy start before the whole thing devolves into a monsoon by Sunday. Apparently it shouldn’t turn into a giant mud flow flood this year though, so that’s good! Bring wellies though, you will cry without them.
Acts you definitely can’t miss?
The icy pop electro of CHVRCHES should be a great show, especially as they’re on home soil. That being said we can’t help but marvel and wonder at a band named The Red Hot Chili Pipers – they might be the act of the weekend.
Can you still get tickets?
