T in the Park


T in the Park

The UK's liveliest festival crowd and an iconic setting in rolling Scottish countryside always make T in the Park a huge spectacle. Viewers will be treated to extended coverage on Red Button - full sets and uninterrupted music from three stages at T, as well as tracks from some of the stars of the future performing for BBC Introducing.

This year's artists include current crowd favourites Tinie Tempah, Professor Green, Jessie J, Example and Emile Sandé. The Main Stage will play host to a party of epic proportions on Saturday for headliners The Stone Roses, on stage after Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. More quality nostalgia is provided over the weekend by New Order, Simple Minds and The Happy Mondays. Other festival favourites playing include Kasabian, Snow Patrol, Florence & the Machine, Chase & Status, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia and Elbow.
