T In The Park 2008

Confirmed Artists Announced

Just announced at a star studded ceremony in Glasgow (well, not quite star studded but definitely in Glasgow) are the artists confirmed for T in the Park 2008, held over the 11th, 12th and 13th July at Balado in Kinross-shire.

Friday sees the reformed Verve appear, headlining over The Stereophonics and local lass KT Tunstall.
Saturday boasts Rage Against The Machine as headliner with a distinctly Caledonian flavour to the rest of the bill with The Fratellis, Biffy Clyro and Amy McDonald.
Sunday has REM and fellow Southern gents the Kings of Leon battling it out.

Elsewhere Aphex Twin, Erol Alkan and Justice appear in the Slam dance tent, Interpol will perform on the Pet Sounds stage, The Wombats and Feeder play the NME tent and the T Break tent sees appearances from local heroes The Law and Sergeant.

Other bands appearing include (deep breath) The Kooks, Raconteurs, The Pogues, Band of Horses, Seasick Steve, The Charlatans, Sons & Daughters, The Pigeon Detectives and THE PRODIGY!

Update –

Also appearing are Hot Chip, Counting Crowes, Panic at the Disco, Chemical Brothers, The Feeling, The Enemy, Alabama Three, Primal Scream, Eddy Grant, Ting Tings, Black Kids, Pendulum, Reverend and the Makers, The Courteeners, Paul Heaton, Sons of Albion, The National….

DF Concerts Geoff Ellis also stated that they were still in talks with other acts of a headlining status.

Thankfully, they are going to open the campsite for 20,000 campers on Thursday night to prevent the traffic chaos from last year.
