Some of the biggest names in the game have helped T In The Park celebrate their 20th birthday this past weekend (12-14 July) in Balado, Kinross-shire. And what a party. After appearances at Glastonbury and London’s Olympic Park, Mumford And Sons closed Friday in glorious fashion. Rihanna, unleashed her Diamonds world tour on T on Saturday, and finally, Las Vegas’ finest The Killers brought a glittering curtain down on the whole thing on Sunday. Of course, the BBC were there filming some of the biggest performances. There’s a ton to get through, so we’ve selected some of our favourites from T In The Park 2013, to save you the hassle:
Disclosure – ‘White Noise’
Forget ‘Get Lucky’, it’s been ‘White Noise’ packing fields from Somerset to Balado this summer. Aluna Francis handily turned up to add her guest vocal.
Mumford And Sons – ‘The Cave’
If there’s one word to describe Mumford And Sons’ summer so far, it’s ‘victorious’. The crowd reaction to ‘The Cave’ just proves it.
Beady Eye – ‘Second Bite Of The Apple’
Liam Gallagher’s taking on Beady Eye’s festival slots with relish. And there’s something special about seeing one of rock’s all-time great frontmen in action.
Alt-J – ‘Dissolve’
Alt-J’s festival victory lap following last year’s Mercury Prize win continues at pace. Well, not at pace, but you know what we mean. A nice pace.
Jake Bugg – ‘Broken’
Boy, what a summer the Nottingham strummer is having. The same weekend he supported The Rolling Stones, Jake pulled this off at T.
Haim – ‘Falling’
Recently holed in London putting the finishing touches to their debut album – the Haim sisters got all their pent-up energy out of their systems on Friday.
Two Door Cinema Club – ‘Next Year’
One of our favourite things about this summer is the way Alex Trimble is scrubbing up for the festivals. He and his band turned in another smart performance.
Noah & The Whale – ‘Five Years’
Noah & The Whale were built for festivals. Particularly sunny ones. Plus there was someone in the crowd dressed as a banana, which is excellent.
