T in the Park have today announced more top acts for the 20th year celebrations. My Bloody Valentine, Trash Talk,FIDLAR and The Virginmarys are the latest artists to join the T in the Park bill, and will be performing in Kinross over 12th – 14th July.
The hugely influential My Bloody Valentine will make their T in the Park debut this July, in what’s sure to be a very special moment at the festival’s 20th year celebrations. Their much revered debut album Isn’t Anything and their iconic second release Loveless earned the band a devoted following and global critical acclaim. Their long awaited third album m b v has been 22 years in the making, and when they released it on their website in February, demand from fans was so phenomenal it caused the site to crash within minutes. An exhilarating live act, they’ll showcase their highly acclaimed new material as well as classics such as You Made Me Realise andOnly Shallow from their much loved back catalogue.
Sacramento punk group Trash Talk take their influence from American hardcore and speed metal. The group’s steady touring has won them a rapidly growing fan base, and support slots with Odd Future (OFWGKTA) raised their profile even further. They’re guaranteed to deliver a stand out set at T in the Park.
Also making the trip to Scotland from the sunshine state will be punk outfit FIDLAR. The LA four-piece released their eponymous debut album in January, receiving much acclaim for their collection of frenetic, fuzzed out, west coast punk tracks. They caused a stir with their slot at this year’s SXSW, and if past performances are anything to go by, they’re sure to put on a blistering set at T in the Park this July.
Macclesfield’s The Virginmarys were another buzz band in Austin last month. Their blend of punk, grunge and rock ‘n’ roll influences has already landed them an iTunes single of the week both in the UK and US. Their debut album King of Conflict has won the band plaudits from across the globe, as well as an impressive international fan base, with Slash famously declaring himself a fan, and their set at T in the Park is not to be missed.
