T In The Park Goes Fancy Dress

As more acts are announced

T In The Park has set its theme for this year's instalment of Fancy Dress Friday.

There is no more anonymous experience than walking through a crowd of 80,000 people. With this in mind, more and more festival goers are getting into the fancy dress spirit free from being recognised.

T In The Park has turned Fancy Dress Friday into an annual tradition, and this summer will be no exception. A statement from organisers has revealed that fans will be asked to dress in a retro 80s theme at Balado this summer.

The official sponsors of Fancy Dress Friday are Smiffy's - who will be on site to run a special vintage clothing stall.

Elsewhere, the music line up continues to expand. Sunderland indie troupe Frankie & The Heartstrings have blazed a trail across the country, following the release of their debut album 'Hunger'.

Available on their own PopSex imprint, the album is a touch, acerbic take on the legacy of post-punk. Reaching back to the roots of indie music, Edwyn Collins took care of production on an impressive debut offering.

Due to perform at T In The Park this summer, Frankie & The Heartstrings will be joined by a number of newcomers. Rachel Sermanni has won praise for her delicate take on alt folk, touring with Mumford & Sons earlier this year.

The young Scottish singer seems to gather fans with each performance, and her show at Balado will be no exception. One of the final additions to the line up, Rachel Sermanni will be joined by Cherri Bomb, The Pretty Reckless and more.

A very limited number of T In The Park residence packages are still available.

T In The Park runs between July 8th - 10th.
