Hurts top NME poll to find this year’s best performance at T In The Park

King Tut's Wah Wah Tent slot voted ahead of Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, The Strokes and Foo Fighters

Hurts have topped an NME poll to find the best performance at this year’s T In The Park festival.

The electro-pop duo, who played in the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent, fought off competition from headliners Arctic Monkeys and Coldplay to pick up the title.

Our online poll, which received 400,000 votes, invited fans to rate performers from this year’s Balado event out of 10.

Hurts scored an average vote of 8.60, putting them clearly ahead of Alex Turner and co’s 7.25 in second place. Coldplay weren’t far behind the Sheffield four-piece with 7.13.

The Strokes, Foo Fighters, Miles Kane, The Vaccines, Pulp, Weezer and Primal Scream completed the top ten.

This is the second time Hurts have topped an NME poll for best performance. Last month they also beat U2, Coldplay and Beyonce to the same title at this year’s Glastonbury festival.
