T In The Park: ‘Rage Against The Machine just as relevant now as before’

Festival organiser speaks about tonight's (July 12) headliner

T In The Park festival organiser Geoff Ellis has claimed that Rage Against The Machine, who are set to headline the Scottish festival tonight (July 12), are as important now as they were before they first split.

Ellis told BBC News how pleased he was to have signed the band up to play the event, and also said he was anticipating Amy Winehouse‘s performance tomorrow (July 13).

“For me, getting Rage Against The Machine back to T was a great coup,” he said. “They are just as relevant now as they were in 1994 at the first T festival, which was when they last played here.”


R.E.M will be great – Amy Winehouse, everyone is excited about her as well, so I think it’s going to be a fantastic weekend.

“When we first started the event we never thought it would grow to this size with this number of stages and have people travelling from all over the world.”
