Less than two weeks after T in the park 2011 finished, Tickets for T in the Park 2012 had already sold out. This years festival from Balado Kinross, Scotland, runs from Friday 6th July until Sunday 8th July 2012 and some of the bands in the line-up look really great, which is more than can be said for the weather forecast
Here are 9 top acts that you can catch at T this summer: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Florence And The Machine, The Maccabees, The Horrors, Miles Kane, The Vaccines, Maverick Sabre, Frank Turner and Two Door Cinema Club. This years line-up also includes The Stone Roses & Happy Mondays who continue their comebacks, New Order and Snow Patrol are also appearing, as are Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian, Elbow, Chase and Status, The Enemy, Shed Seven, The Subways, Childish Gambino, McFly, Cher Lloyd, Cover Drive, Django Django, We Are Augustines, The Jezabels, Lawson, Exampe, the darkness, Olly Murs, Feeder, Simple Minds, keane, Tinie tempa, professor Green, Daid Guetta, Enter shikiri, Dappy, NIcki Manaj The SWedish House Mafia, Orbital Reverend and the Makers and Bellowhead among many others.
In addition the all new Cabaret Club is bringing cabaret, burlesque and comedy to T in the Park this year, including Frisky & Mannish, East End Cabaret, Rayguns Look Real Rough, The Stand Comedy Club and sensational burlesque and circus stars including Cat Acylsmic, Vendetta Vain, Miss Hell’s Belle, Leyla Rose, Daiquiri Dusk and many more across the weekend!
Mind you Although the atmosphere can at times be absolutely fantastic and seeing your favourite band playing live is a wonderful experience, There comes a point in life when the “full festival experience” loses some of its attractiveness. and you may fnd yourself glumly faltering in the face of wet, muddy fields, constant rain, unhygienic conditions and downright disgusting toilts and asking yourself “what am I doing here?”
Television coverage can be comprehensive and broad, thanks in no small part to the red button, which gives you the chance to choose between acts that are on at the same time. But I think it is no comparison to seeing a great band live and experiencing the atmosphere for yourself, plus you don’t get presenters wittering on inanely and cutting the coverage of your favourite bands off mid-song
