Festival's organisers confirm first names
Kings Of Leon, Snow Patrol and Katy Perry are the first headline acts to be confirmed for this year’s T In The Park festival.
The festival’s boss Geoff Ellis revealed the names to the Daily Record, in response to internet rumours about the line-up.
“We’re delighted. Kings Of Leon are the hottest property at the moment. We’re ecstatic at having locked them in. Snow Patrol are Scotland’s biggest band at the moment,” Ellis told the newspaper.
“She [Katy Perry] has great songs and is full of attitude. I saw her hosting the MTV Awards in Liverpool and I just knew she could carry it off,” he added.
Kings Of Leon will be headlining the Main Stage on Friday (July 10), the slot Snow Patrol will play the Sunday night (July 12). The Saturday headliner for the Main Stage has yet to be revealed.
Katy Perry will headline the NME/Radio 1 stage on the Saturday (July 11).
T In The Park is set to take place in Balado, near Kinross, between July 10-12.
