Snow Patrol, The Stone Roses & Kasabian to headline T in the Park 2012

They will be joined by an ultra-impressive bill made up of the world’s ‘must see’ acts across the weekend of 6-8th July 2012.

Firm favourites with festival crowds across the globe, Snow Patrol bring their epic anthems back to Balado to headline the mighty Main Stage.  Festival frontman Gary Lightbody hailed T in the Park as “the best weekend ever” when the band gave one of the most memorable T in the Park headline performances to date, in 2009. Since T in the Park first booked an unknown Snow Patrol in 1999, the band have soared to international stardom and gone on to sell in excess of 11 million albums worldwide.  Having just completed their sold out ‘Fallen Empires’ tour of the UK and Ireland, the band are off to tour Europe and the U.S.A before heading home, fired up and ready to go at Balado.
Having announced their ‘live resurrection’ to the delight of dedicated fans across the globe, The Stone Roses will undoubtedly provide THE seminal music moment of the summer with their hugely anticipated headline performance at T in the Park 2012.  All eyes will be on Balado when the Manchester legends take to the stage for a very rare UK festival appearance and their only live show in Scotland, not to mention a truly historic moment for T in the Park.
Stone Roses
Kasabian are certainly on fire right now, with their fourth studio album Velociraptor taking the group to stratospheric new levels. The follow-up to the acclaimed West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, the current album was recorded in Leicester, mixed in San Francisco and written and produced by the group’s guitarist Sergio Pizzorno. Kasabian are an incendiary live act who consistently top the polls of the bands festival fans want to see.  Currently up for three NME Awards (Best Live Band, Best British Band, Greatest Music Moment of the Year), Kasabian first played T in the Park in 2004 and have been consistently championed by T in the Parkers ever since.  The Leicester lads make a very welcome return to the top of the bill to bring T in the Park 2012 to a raucous close.  
Kasabian said: “It’s an honour that we’ve been invited back to play T in the Park. It’s always been one of our favourite UK festivals and after having such a blast in 2010, we can’t wait to do it all over again.”
The headliners join an already stellar group of top top acts confirmed for T in the Park 2012, including Florence + the Machine, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Vaccines, Two Door Cinema Club, The Maccabees, Frank Turner, Miles Kane, The Horrors and Maverick Sabre.
Newly announced Tinie Tempah is undoubtedly one of the freshest and biggest stars to come out of Britain in the past two years.  Since his debut album Disc-Overy debuted at No. 1, preceded by two smash hit No.1 singles Pass Out and Written in the Stars, the sensational solo star has fast become one of the most award-winning, best-selling performers of recent times.  
Bernard Sumner, Gillian Gilbert, Stephen Morris, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman – the newly reformed New Order – are back together and will return to Balado, having last performed at T in the Park in 2005. One of the most highly influential and critically acclaimed bands of the 1980’s, New Order were the pioneering force behind electronic music, responsible for 1983 hit Blue Monday, the best-selling 12 inch single of all time. Tracks such as True Faith and Regret have influenced generations of hit making musicians ever since. This unmissable set at T in the Park is guaranteed to be worth the wait!
Bernard Sumner, New Order frontman, said: “It’s been 7 years since we played in Scotland, up at ‘T’, and we had a brilliant time. It was as much of a surprise to us as it was to our fans when Brandon from The Killers joined us onstage for Crystal, so it’s gonna be hard to top that one, but we’ll do our best to make sure it’s another memorable night for everyone. See you all soon!”
David Guetta is arguably one of the world’s most popular DJ’s and one of the most sought after music producers.  Hailing from France, he has sold over 3 million albums and 15 million singles across the globe.   For fifth studio album Nothing But the Beat, Guetta introduced rock influences to his dance beats and upped the ante yet again with smash hit tracks Where Them Girls At and Without You.  David Guetta boasts some of the biggest tunes in the business right now and will be blasting them loud at Balado this summer.   
Calvin Harris has gone from producing tracks in his bedroom in Dumfries to internationally renowned DJ, producer, singer, songwriter phenomenon.  Calvin’s second album Ready For the Weekend went straight to the No.1 spot and spawned massive hit after hit single, gaining him further attention from fans as well artists in demand of his record producing skills.  Credited for being the most successful songwriter in the UK singles chart in 2011 and following a stint on tour with Rhianna, the pair collaborated on smash hit single We Found Love, which catapulted them to the to the top of the charts the world over. Calvin Harris is close to T in the Park’s heart and fans will surely agree that it feels so good to have him back at Balado.
Elbow are a band renowned for their stunning songwriting ability as well as their amazing live performances.  Since forming in 1990, the band have been recognised for both, achieving an accolade of awards including two Ivor Novello Awards  for best contemporary song and best song musically and lyrically for the singles Grounds for Divorce and One Day Like This respectively. The Bury five-piece also won the prestigious Mercury Music Prize for their album The Seldom Seen Kid. 2012 will be another big year for Elbow as they have been chosen to provide the soundtrack to BBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games, as well as delivering a standout set at T in the Park.
Having been raised in Aberdeen and studied at the University of Glasgow, Emeli Sandé is a Scots talent to be truly proud of.  Emeli’s debut album Our Version of Events sold more than 100,000 copies in the last week alone, putting her in the lead in terms of sales of any other British artist this year. With her debut album currently at No.1 and as the winner of this year’s Brits Critics’ Choice Award, Emeli Sandé has proved herself to be one of the most talented and respected singer/songwriters of our time and her debut performance at T in the Park is not to be missed.

Wireless Festival adds David Guetta, Bruno Mars and more!

david guettaAlready boasting The Black Eyed Peas, Brit Award winners Plan B & Tinie Tempah, and Example, Friday July 1’s line-up has now got even better!  Special guest David Guetta will take to the Hyde Park stage with his signature sound of quirky electro, house and dirty pop. He has joined forces with some of pop’s biggest names including Kelly Rowland, Akon, Flo Rida and headliners Black Eyed Peas to create the biggest chart smashes of the past two years.  His fourth album ‘One Love’ has sold over 2.8 million copies, Guetta’s appearance is set to ignite the Hyde Park crowds.  An extraordinary talent, Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars is currently taking the UK by storm.  He co-wrote four UK number one singles in 2010 including his debut solo single ‘Just The Way You Are’ which became one of the biggest selling singles of last year.  This year has seen him release another chart topping single ‘Grenade’ whilst his debutbruno mars album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ also went straight in at number one.   Multi-talented musician Labrinth has experienced an extraordinary career trajectory. The producer, writer and guest vocalist behind Tinie Tempah’s massive hits, Pass Out and Frisky, and soon to be future hits for Professor Green, JLS and Devlin, he recentlyreleased his debut single ‘Let The Sunshine’, which hit number 3 on the UK Singles Chart.  With LA-based quartet Far East Movement who have already hit number one on Billboards Hot 100, R & B goddess Yasmin and the new don of UK hip-hop Wretch 32 also confirmed for Friday’s line-up this is set to be a must see event!
Saturday 2 July is set to be a scorching day of sensational music. Since bursting onto the scene in 2002, The Streets, the sobriquet of Birmingham garage rapper Mike Skinner, has become one of the most respected lyrical maestros of modern rap with his sharp observations of modern life. His second studio album ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’, released in 2004, went straight to number one, spawning songs including ‘Fit But Don’t You Know It’ and the number one chart topper ‘Dry Your Eyes’. His next release two years later, ‘The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living’, also headed straight to number one and sold three million copies across the UK. With the release of his fifth and final album as The Streets‘Computers and Blues’ earlier this year, this is set to be one of the last opportunities fans will get to see The Streets live on stage.Urban music’s breakout star Katy B ushered a new wave of R&B last year when she released her dub-step anthem ‘Katy On A Mission’. The single debuted at number five and topped the indie and dance charts. With her highly anticipated debut album ‘On A Mission’ set for release in April, the Peckham born and bred Katy is on course to be the most high-profile star to arise from dubstep.  The enigmatic, Dagenham born Devlin set the bar for a new generation of Grime music in 2006 with his underground classic, Tales from the Crypt. In December 2009, he was named on the BBC’S Sounds of 2010 Longlist, cited as ‘one of the hottest names on the underground grime scene’. His debut album ‘bud, sweat & beers’ was released in November last year.  Fusing rock and rave German dance punk duo Digitalism who have re-worked tracks for the likes of The White Stripes, The Klaxons and The Cure are another fantastic addition to Saturday’s sterling bill.

L.E.D Festival Review

L.E.DL.E.D Festival held it's inaugural 2 day event at London's Victora Park on Friday 27th August and Saturday 28th August 2010. Brought together by heavyweights Cream, Loudsound and Goldenvoice, the lineup spoke for itself which included friday headliner David Guetta and Saturday headliner Leftfield.

With a bit of rain during the week and on Friday morning, we were happy to see it dry up a little before we arrived there.

Audio Bullys L.E.D We walked in just in time to catch the Audio Bullys with Simon Franks on the mike. As the crowd slowly builds out by the main stage, a massive roar is heard when the Audio Bullys play "Shot You Down".
Afrojack L.E.D FestivalNewcomer Afrojack is one of the hottest talents coming out of Holland at the moment and he took to the decks for the next hour. He took things up a notch with a very energetic performance. As the sun starting to shine out through the clouds, Afrojack dropped his new tune "Take Over Control" featuring the lovely vocals of Eva Simmons and to finish, tune of the moment Swedish House Mafia's "One", to see the crowd run to the main stage to join in made for a great end to a very impressive and enjoyable set.
Calvin Harris L.E.D FestivalCalvin Harris took to the decks next performing a DJ Set. Its been a while since I have seen Calvin DJ however his skills on the decks are second to none. Geting the crowd going with his latest tune "You used to Hold Me" Calvin played a uplifting house set before making way for the exceptional SoulWax.

Soulwax took to the crowd with a full band setup and rocked it like they do. Soulwax are well known for their energetic and non-stop performances and didn't disappoint at L.E.D.

Soulwax L.E.D Festival

Moving to the Planet Turbo tent we catch the end of Zombie Nation just as they drop the always brilliant Kernkraft 400. Headlining the Planet Turbo tent was none other than Turbo Recording label boss Tiga. With a loyal following Tiga kept the tempo up with a typical uplifting Tiga set.


David Guetta L.E.D FestivalHeadliner David Guetta takes to the Main Stage with a massive stage setup. Perched high above the crowd in a stage built full of led lighting, he kicked off with his latest successful collaboration with Fergie (from the Black Eyed Peas), Chris Willis and LMFAO "Gettin Over You" Going through his plethora of tunes we also heard his new collaboration with Kelly Rowland "Commander". For me David Guetta was the highlight of the day, closely followed by Afrojack.

Overall we quite enjoyed the first edition of L.E.D Festival in London, we look forward to seeing it back at Victoria Park next year.
