Festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partners Tennent’s Lager yesterday revealed The Libertines will headline T in the Park 2015. The group are the very first act to be announced for this year’s festival – the first to be held at T in the Park’s brand new home, Strathallan Castle, which will take place across the weekend of 10-12 July 2015. The band played T in the Park in 2004, and this July they return as a reunited and re-energised outfit in what should be a top headline set at T in the Park’s beautiful new home.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “The Libertines are a truly iconic British band, revered as cult heroes by a generation of music fans and adored by the Scottish crowd. They chose Scotland as the destination for their live return on home soil last June, and raised the roof of the Barrowlands with two exhilarating shows. We can’t wait to welcome them back in what is a historic year for T in the Park, as we take up residency at our beautiful new home, Strathallan Castle. It’s going to be a very special year for T in the Park, and we can’t wait to welcome you all to Strathallan.”
George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship, Tennent’s Lager, said: “From the festival’s early years at Strathclyde Country Park, throughout 18 wonderful years at Balado, and now looking ahead to the next chapter in T in the Park history - Tennent’s Lager has been a part of this great festival from day 1. As founding partner, we are exceptionally proud to have been the T in T in the Park for 22 years, and we are hugely excited to celebrate the first festival at our brand new home with the T in the Park audience this July.”
