T In The Park only extended to three days for the first time in 2007, with only the Main Stage open on the first day previously.
Three stages have burst into action today, with Los Campesinos! kicking off the bill here.
The band’s set featured many highlights from the Cardiff band’s recently-released debut album, ‘Hold On Now, Youngster…’, including the singles ‘Death To Los Campesinos!’ and ‘You! Me! Dancing!’.
Frontman Gareth Campesinos! incurred the wrath of the locals and a few light-hearted boos when he said, before ‘This Is How You Spell “Ha Ha Ha, We Destroyed The Hopes And Dreams Of A Generation Of Faux-Romantics”‘: “We’re from Cardiff, in Wales, which is near Bristol, in England!”
