Coldplay, Pulp confirmed

Arctic Monkeys are amongst the new additions to the line up of this year's T In The Park.

Scotland's biggest music festival, T In The Park has a near unrivalled reputation for grabbing exclusive performances. Each year over 80,000 people descend on the Balado site in anticipation of something special.

This year organisers have managed to keep the line up carefully under wraps. In an announcement earlier today (February 22nd) the details of the bill were finally officially confirmed.

Sheffield indie kingpins Arctic Monkeys are set to headline the event, with a performance which will surely go down in T In The Park history. The band are folk heroes at the festival, following a seminal early performance.

With three albums to draw on, the set should be something quite special. Arctic Monkeys are also working on new material, and have previously hinted that they could drop fresh tracks into this summer's shows.

Elsewhere, stadium hogging giants Coldplay are due to perform. One of the biggest groups on the planet, the band are preparing to put the finishing touches to their new album, the follow up to 'Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends'.

Set to headline T In The Park, Coldplay will be joined by a varied bill. Reformed Britpop giants Pulp are set to perform, taking the Balado crowd on a much loved trip down memory lane.

Manic Street Preachers are due to perform, while Friendly Fires will preview their second album. The bill includes a varied cast, with Stornoway set to bring their nostalgic folk songwriting to Balado.

The line up also contains appearances from Crystal Castles, KT Tunstall, Plan B, Miles Kane and more.

Tickets are set to go on sale from 9am this Friday (February 25th).

T In The Park takes place between July 8th - 10th. To buy your tickets click HERE.
