Young Fathers bring the party to T In The Park

Edinburgh rap/hip-hoppers get the crowd jumping

Local lads Young Fathers today (July 11) played a well-received set on the BBC Introducing Stage at T In The Park.

Despite there being a relatively sparse crowd, all present enjoyed the Edinburgh trio’s mash-up of electro-inflected hip-hop and rap.

The band even broke out into a series of co-ordinated dance moves at various points throughout their 25-minute set, which culminated in a raucous airing of new single ‘Straight Back On It’.


Halfway through the first chorus of said track, the outfit stopped performing in order to cue up the remixed version, which they then closed their set with.
