Excitement surrounding T in the Park is at fever pitch, with the line up being widely cited worldwide as the bill to beat this summer. Festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager continue to add to summer’s strongest festival bill with The Strokes, Slash, Peter Doherty, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Jenny & Johnny, Devlin, Mona and The Naked And Famous all booked up for Balado on the weekend of 8th – 10th July 2011.
Following the unfortunate news that blink-182 are no longer able to play at this year’s T in the Park, organisers have pulled out all the stops to deliver another stellar batch of formidable artists, including rock gods The Strokes and Slash.
Widely recognised as one of the most prominent bands to emerge in the 21st century, The Strokes have been changing the face of indie music with their records for a decade. 2001’s debut album ‘Is This It’ was hailed as the seminal album of its time, a creative goldmine, and claimed NME’s prestigious ‘Album of the Decade’ title. The band have since propelled to global superstardom, receiving adulation from all corners of the earth and released their fourth studio album ‘Angles’ to an adoring public just last week. These boys have toured the globe and will make a welcome return to T in the Park for what is sure to be one of the seminal musical moments of the summer.
Scotland welcomes another living legend to T in the Park this summer in the form of the one and only Slash. Respected worldwide as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, from performing with Guns N’ Roses, to setting up Velvet Revolver and now stealing the show everywhere he goes as a fully-fledged solo star, Slash is set to get even the most die hard rock fans trembling with excitement when he takes to the stage at T in the Park.
