Oasis look set to headline Saturday evening at this year’s T IN THE PARK festival at BALADO in Scotland on July 13, NME.COM can announce.

The band, whose forthcoming new single ‘The Hindu Times’ is available to download on a number of fansites, are believed to be closing a first day that will also see Strokes play. No Doubt have placed a posting on their official website www.nodoubt.com confirming they too will play. However, it isn’t clear if they will play the first day or the July 14 closing day.

A source close to T In The Park would neither confirm nor deny the acts would feature at the festival . The line-up will be announced on Wednesday (March 6).

T In The Park is just one of what is expected to be a series of major Charlatans concerts for the summer to coincide with the release of their new album, tentatively titled ‘Heathen Chemistry’.
