Tickets on sale Friday 7th December 9am! From www.tinthepark.com
Festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are excited to reveal that Two Door Cinema Club and Azealia Banks are heading to Kinross next July for the 20th year of T in the Park. They join a glittering array of acts announced by organisers earlier this week, with headliners Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers, plus The Script, alt-J, Paloma Faith, Jake Bugg and Of Monsters and Men already confirmed to play T in the Park’s 20th year edition over 12th – 14th July.
Since releasing their debut album Tourist History in 2010, Northern Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club have had a stratospheric rise to success. In the past year alone, they’ve headlined the NME Awards Tour 2012, released their critically acclaimed second album Beacon and frontman Alex Trimble has performed to a global audience of over a billion at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, after being specially invited by Danny Boyle to sing the vocals on Caliban’s Dream. They’re sure to deliver a stand-out set at T in the Park.
Azealia Banks became one of the most talked about new acts on the planet when she featured in the top 3 of the BBC’s prestigious Sound of 2012 poll and topped NME’s Cool List at the end of 2011. Now prepping her debut album, Azealia has been teasing her audience with gems like 212 – a certified club pleaser on rotation in dance floors around the globe – in addition to a slew of other records that showcase her range as an artist. Her T in the Park debut in July is hotly anticipated.
The latest additions to the T20 line-up come the day after Mumford & Sons – who were revealed as headliners by festival organisers on Tuesday – played a blistering set in Glasgow and received a phenomenal 6 Grammy nominations, including a nod for the prestigious Album of the Year award.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “Two Door Cinema Club are one of the freshest, most exciting new acts around, and have had a phenomenal past year. One of the hottest new acts on the planet, Azealia Banks is a stunning live performer – I saw her at Coachella this year, then again in Glasgow and both times her set was incredible. We’re really delighted to be bringing both acts to Kinross this July.”
George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager said: “As founding partner of T in the Park, Tennent’s are exceptionally proud to have been part of this fantastic festival since it began back in 1994. With yet more great artists announced today, T in the Park 2013 is already shaping up to be an incredible weekend, and we can’t wait to celebrate the festival’s 20th year with the T in the Park fans.”
