The lineup for T in the Park 2011 was scheduled to be announced today at 11am, however possibly due to high traffic on the T in the Park website, nothing was revealed, however the lineup started showing up via Twitter.
We can let you know that Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Foo Fighters will be headlining.
Arctic Monkeys released their debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ in 2006. That same year, the phenomenal four-piece made another stunning debut on the Main Stage at TITP (T in the Park). They followed this with a headline slot in 2007 and released their 2nd LP ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’. In 2009 they released ‘Humbug’ their 3rd consecutive Number 1 LP. Arctic Monkeys are a band of the people, totally in tune with a new generation of live music lovers and top of festival fans’ wish lists for favourite festival headliners.
Coldplay made their TITP debut in the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent in 2000 and returned to headline in 2003 when Chris Martin changed the lyrics of ‘God Put a Smile upon Your Face’ to “God gave you light and gave you dark, God gave you tickets for T in the Park”. 8 years later they are back as one of the biggest bands in the world. Having sold over 50 million records worldwide, Coldplay have been packing stadiums the world over, treating their army of fans to powerful performances and there’s another spine-tingling set instore when they take centre stage in Scotland.
Foo Fighters are set to release their highly anticipated seventh studio album and frontman Dave Grohl (NME Godlike Genius 2010) recently revealed he wants to play it live at night in front of tens of thousands of people – “It’s a festival album because it f**king rocks!.” Grohl will do exactly that as the Foo Fighters put in yet another stadium calibre performance at this year’s T in the Park, debuting new material from their forthcoming album alongside anthems from their multi-platinum, multiple Grammy-winning catalogue. The TITP crowd is sure to go home satisfied and exhausted, and nursing throats sore from singing along with the likes of The Pretender, Best of You, All My Life, Learn To Fly, Everlong and more.
Hailing from Southern California, pop punk trio blink-182 have notched up over 25 million worldwide album sales since forming in 1992. They released five studio albums including multi-platinum selling breakthrough album ‘Enema of the State (1999) between 1994 and 2005, before breaking away from the music scene. The 51st Grammy Awards in 2009 brought the band back together and with a new album planned for release in 2011, blink-182 will be at Balado for an unforgettable T in the Park 2011.
Pulp make a return to this year’s TITP for what is sure to be one of the musical events of the summer. The show will involve all the original members of the band (Nick Banks, Jarvis Cocker, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey, Russell Senior and Mark Webber) and they will be playing songs from all periods of their career. They previously headlined TITP’s Main Stage in both 1996 and 1998 and played King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent at the inaugural TITP in 1994.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride for The Script, whose new No.1 album ‘Science & Faith’ and top five single ‘For The First Time’ has led to the announcement of a massive UK arena tour for 2011 and a highly anticipated set at TITP. The Script’s new album is the follow up to 2008’s 1.8 million selling self-titled, No.1, global smash of a debut. In their own words, “First and foremost we are a live band. We’re gonna give it everything, we just can’t wait!!”
BRIT award winner for British Solo Male Plan B and winner of British Single and British Breakthrough Artist Tinie Tempah are two of the UK’s biggest success stories and their respective performances at TITP are sure to show why. With the release of his multi-platinum selling second album ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’, dapper lyrical genius Plan B proved he is the ultimate package and one of the most talented and versatile artists in UK music.
Tinie Tempah is breaking records and boundaries in British music and hit single ‘Pass Out’ was the smash hit of 2010, recently resulting in the BRIT award for British Single. He has also worked with the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Ellie Goulding and Kelly Rowland and will undoubtedly be one of the biggest hits at T in the Park 2011.
It’s raw rock’n’roll one minute, and classic pop the next from Beady Eye, as they confirm their appearance at this year’s T in the Park Festival. Beady Eye will be performing songs from their debut album, released next week entitled “Different Gear, Still Speeding”. Beady Eye is the band formed by ex Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell.
The legend that is Tom Jones will also grace the green, green grass of Balado. During his 40 year career, Jones has sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide and collaborated with the likes of Chicane, Wyclef Jean, Stereophonics and Robbie Williams as well as unreleased material with Elvis Presley. His powerful voice and smooth moves are sure to deliver a performance that will go down in T in the Park history.
