Scottish band Travis return to festival having first performed in 1994
Travis and Johnny Marr are among the latest additions to this year’s T In The Park festival.
Scottish band Travis will return to the festival, held at Balado, Kinross, having first performed at T In The Park’s inaugural year in 1994. The band recently announced they will release their seventh LP, their first in five years, entitled ‘Where You Stand’, on August 19. Joining them on the T line-up will be former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr as well as new additions Hurts, James Skelly, Jack Savoretti, Willy Mason, Foy Vance, Steve Mason, Milo Greene and DIIV.
Speaking about Travis’ return to T In The Park, Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “Travis have given us some epic performances at T In The Park over the past 20 years, including at our very first outing back in 1994 and incredible headline sets in 2000 and in 2005. They’ve been there since day one, and it really does feel like they are part of the fabric of T In The Park.”
The festival, which takes place on July 12-14, will be headlined this year by Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers. Also in the raft of artists set to appear are Foals, Haim, Phoenix, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris and Beady Eye, along with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dizzee Rascal and Kraftwerk.
