Now, back to the bands – added to the unmissable T in the Park bill is Taylor Momsen and her brood of rock and roll playthings The Pretty Reckless. Inspired by the likes of The White Stripes, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, Momsen is not only a model, dancer and actress in US hit ‘Gossip Girl’, but a phenomenal rising star in the music scene. Her belting vocals and rock star attitude have earned her notoriety in the music world and she’s sure to show Scotland her wild side when the band touch down in Balado this summer.
Hailing from the blistering valley of Los Angeles Cherri Bomb are a badass all girl rock band taking the music scene by storm. Set to conquer Scotland at T in the Park with an electrifying performance influenced by greats such as Foo Fighters and My Chemical Romance – the girls also have a limited edition EP out this summer and T in the Parkers will be among the first in Europe to behold rock music’s next big thing..
Fresh faced folk favourite Rachel Sermanni has exploded onto the folk scene to heaps of praise from fans and critics alike.

With Mumford and Sons championing her talent, she’s destined for big things this year and her performance at T in the Park is sure to be one of them.
Retro-rock outfit Frankie and the Heartstrings’ 2011 debut album ‘Hunger’ catapulted them into the music mainstream drawing comparisons to indie greats The Smiths, The Libertines and Suede.
