The Human League have been added to the T In The Park line-up.
The band are currently on course to re-enter the Official Singles Chart Top Ten with their 1981 Number One single ‘Don’t You Want Me’ after it was adopted by Aberdeen FC fans during their run in the Scottish League Cup, which the club won on Sunday (March 16).
Fans of the team have propelled the song back up the charts after a social media campaign to get the song to Number One. Aberdeen supporters changed the lyrics to the song to “Peter Pawlett Baby”, a reference to one of the club’s players, and chanted it during games.
The band said: “The Human League are thrilled to be playing T in the Park this summer, it has been a long held ambition of ours to play at this iconic festival and we were delighted to be asked to be part of such a diverse and exciting bill. See you all soon.”
The Human League will perform on the Saturday (July 12) of the festival, which runs from July 11-13 in Balado, Scotland. Calvin Harris will headline the festival on the same day with Biffy Clyro and Arctic Monkeys confirmed as headliners for the other two nights.
Other bands and artists set for the event include Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Pixies, Haim, You Me At Six, Manic Street Preachers, Chvrches, Maximo Park, Pharrell Williams, Elbow, Rudimental, Bombay Bicycle Club, Metronomy, Jake Bugg, Disclosure, Tinie Tempah, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs, Tame Impala, Kodaline and Chance The Rapper.
This year’s T In The Park will go on until 1am after organisers were granted a late music license by the local council. T In The Park celebrated its 20th anniversary last year with headline slots from The Killers, Rihanna and Mumford and Sons, with other acts at the festival including Kraftwerk, Beady Eye and Jake Bugg.
