Kasabian and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will join The Libertines as the headliners of this year’s T in the Park.
The festival is due to move its festivities to Strathallan Castle from Balado Airfield where it enjoyed an 18-year stint.
Kasabian will headline Scotland’s biggest festival for the third time on the Friday night, whereas The Libertines and Noel Gallagher will be top billing there for the first time. Gallagher previously headed up the festival as part of Oasis but T in the Park will be his first headlining festival as a solo artist.
Other acts include The Prodigy, Twin Atlantic, David Guetta, Jamie T, Rudimental, Stereophonics, Fatboy Slim, Sam Smith Alt-J, Paloma Faith, Avicii, The Script, Hozier, Jessie J, The Courteeners, Alabama Shakes, Above & Beyond, The Vaccines, Kodaline, Labrinth, Annie Mac, Catfish & the Bottlemen, Clean Bandit, The Proclaimers, St. Vincent, The Wombats, Gorgon City, Enter Shikari, Seasick Steve, Jungle, Modest Mouse, Charli XCX, Peace, along with many more to be announced.
Festival organiser Geoff Ellis said: “We’ve announced an array of artists. Kasabian are an incredible live act, we have Avicii who we know will do well from seeing Calvin Harris last year and Prodigy, who have played at all three sites for T.
”We weren’t looking to move home, but we were forced to for ridiculous reasons. Strathallan Castle is a wonderful location. It is more picturesque than Balado and has a castle. It is a pretty site and people will love the site.
“What really makes T in the Park is the bands are important, everyone who really gets involved and everyone else. We work hard every year to put on this fantastic event and people enjoy it. The one thing that makes it such a success is the guests because of their passion, their vitality, vibrancy, sense of humour, every element. It makes us stand out from other festivals, not just in the UK but worldwide.”
The festival will be held at Strathallan Castle on the weekend of July 10 to 12. Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday 27 February at 9am from T in the Park’s website.
