T in the Park line-up announced

It has been announced that Calvin Harris and Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining The Stone Roses as headliners for T in the Park 2016.

Set to take place at Strathallan Castle from 8 – 10 July 2016, the festival will also feature performances from Disclosure, The 1975, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Courteeners, Jess Glynne, James Bay and Jake Bugg.

The Stone Roses will headline the Main Stage on the Friday night, with Calvin Harris performing on Saturday and the Red Hot Chili Peppers closing the festival on the Sunday.

The Californian rock band haven’t performed at T in the Park since they headlined the Main Stage in 2006. Speaking of their return to Scotland, the band said: “Can’t believe it’s been 10 years since we last played T in the Park. It seems fitting to mark the 10th anniversary of that performance with a return visit.”

Tickets for the festival will remain at the same price for the fourth year running.

Festival Director Geoff Ellis commented:  “We’re incredibly excited to announce some of the world’s greatest artists for T in the Park today. Red Hot Chili Peppers are quite simply one of the biggest rock acts of our time, and their long-awaited return to the festival after 10 years is going to be pretty special.

“We’re also thrilled to welcome back a real T in the Park favourite – Calvin Harris – as our Saturday night headliner. Calvin headlined the Main Stage in 2014 and was introduced on stage by Will Smith, and for many in our audience that moment is up there as one of the most unique and special in T in the Park history!”

T in the Park, Strathallan Castle, Friday 8 until Sunday 10 July 2016, from £82.50, 08444 999 990.
