The institution dance music fans know and love as the Slam Tent will be back at Balado to celebrate its 15th consecutive year and with Leftfield confirmed as a headliner, it’s a line-up that calls for double celebration. The stellar Slam bill of dance heavyweights also includes The Streets, Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77,
Felix da Housecat, Slam, Diplo, Josh Wink, Benga & Youngman, Silicone Soul andMathew Jonson. That’s just for Slam starters as there’s much more to come.
The infamous Swedish House Mafia are set to tear it up when they descend upon Balado. Huge individually and riotous together, the superstar trio of DJ’s Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell take dance music to another level when performing as a collective. They stormed the charts with Tinie Tempah last year providing the unofficial soundtrack to the summer with dance floor anthem ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ and now it’s time to take on T in the Park.
Leftfield pioneered the electronic music scene of 90’s Britain with seminal debut album ‘Leftism’ which fused dub, breakbeat and techno. The album was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize and reached Q Magazine’s 100 Greatest British Albums ever. Famous for touring with an outrageously loud sound system which created headlines in Amsterdam and caused the ceiling of the Brixton Academy to crumble, Neil Barnes is set to make the blue walls of the Slam Tent throb as he single-handedly brings the Leftfield experience to the masses this summer.
This man is so on top of his game that he hardly needs an introduction. Deadmau5, the 28 year old Canadian, is an electro house producer with a big difference. There’s the large cartoon mouse head costume of course, but there’s also the artist, the technical whizzkid, the Grammy Award nominee and the outstanding reputation for being the most forward thinking person in electronic music right now. Killer clubland tracks such as ‘Ghosts N Stuff’ and ‘I Remember’ are sure to form part of a highly visual set that will go down in history. The man has his finger on the pulse, he creates the pulse, he IS the pulse.
Hailed as one of the world’s best electronic music acts, 2manydjs bring their pounding electro for what will be their third appearance at T in the Park. Fans of the Belgian brothers’ sell out shows know to expect outstanding visual treats and electrifying chemistry between the pair, making their set an unmissable affair. Mash ups of foot stompers like Gossip’s ‘Standing in the Way of Control’ and MGMT’s ‘Kids’ have been filling dancefloors all over the world and the fields of Balado will be shaking when these two take to the decks.
The massive dance music collective confirmed for T in the Park, along with leading urban music acts currently lead by the inimitable Tinie Tempah, and the biggest names in rock and pop, further proves that T in the Park has something for everyone. Music fans can get lost in their love of dance for the whole weekend, saturate themselves in the sweet sounds of urban and pop, rock out to the biggest festival acts on the planet or mix it up and do it all. The very best of separate musical genres, across multiple stages with carefully curated line ups for the most finely tuned festival bill of the summer – that’s T in the Park.
At the heart of T in the Park is the music and atmosphere that continually unites the crowd and creates a weekend of memorable moments that will last a lifetime. Brit Award and Grammy winners, multi-million selling artists, music icons and legends….T in the Park 2011 has them all. Bring it on Balado.
