A Brit boy bringing his unique blend of urban into the mainstream music scene is Hackney born rapper Professor Green. His debut album ‘Alive Til I’m Dead’ reached No.2 and was certified gold. Originally signed by Mike Skinner, Professor Green can count Lily Allen amongst his biggest fans and the pair secured a No.5 hit with their collaboration on ‘Just Be Good to Green.’ Times are indeed good for Professor Green, with new album ‘At Your Inconvenience’ ready for release in August. T in the Parkers will get the ultimate sneak preview when Professor Green plays T in the Park.
Professor Green said: “T in the Park was one of the few festivals that I didn’t get to play last year. I love Scotland so I was delighted to get an invite to perform. Scottish crowds go mad and they are really receptive. I look forward to bringing my band, all the hits and having a Tennent’s!”
At only 20 years old, Chipmunk had successfully released five top-ten hits including No.1 single ‘Oopsy Daisy.’ He proved he is indeed a ‘Champion’ of the British music scene when he released a track with Chris Brown called exactly that, the first track from his new album ‘Transition’ which will be released in April, packed with hit after hit that will be played at T in the Park.
OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) led by the controversial, anti-establishment visionary that is Tyler the Creator is probably the most talked-about new music collective in the world right now. Hailing from the sunny shores of Los Angeles, OFWGKTA caused quite the stir earlier this year due to the lyrics and the video of single ‘Yonkers’ and they were the talk of the town at SXSW. Tyler’s second full length album ‘Goblin’ is due for release in May (10) and it’s set to both shock and delight fans and critics alike, in a way that only Tyler the Creator seems to know how. OFWGKTA will undoubtedly put on a T in the Park show to remember.
Also hailing from London is singer/songwriter and producer Labrinth. He’s already achieved No.1 and No.2 smash hit singles ‘Pass Out’ and ‘Frisky’ in collaboration with fellow rapper and confirmed T in the Park artist Tinie Tempah, as well as his own No.3 debut single ‘Let the Sun Shine.’ Let the sun shine indeed as Labrinth wows the crowd at T in the Park.
Nominee for BBC’s Sound of 2011 and MTV’s Brand New for 2011 poll’s, London lad WRETCH 32 is most definitely one to watch this summer. With two Top 5 singles already under his belt (‘Traktor’ and ‘Unorthodox’), there’s plenty more hits to come from this finely tuned rapper’s second album ‘Black & White,’ which is due for release in August and will be previewed at T in the Park this summer.
DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are thrilled to announce the addition of Professor Green, Chipmunk, OFWGKTA, Labrinth, and WRETCH 32 to the A-List line up which already includes Arctic Monkeys,Coldplay, Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Beyoncé, Pulp, The Script, Plan B, Slash, Tinie Tempah, Tom Jones, Jessie J and much more.
