T in the Park festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager recently announced the line-up for T in the Park 2016. The 2016 festival takes place at Strathallan Castle over 8-10 July. Joining the bill - which already features previously announced headliners The Stone Roses, plus Disclosure, Courteeners and The 1975 – today are Jamie xx, James Morrison, Frightened Rabbit, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Bear’s Den, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Krept & Konan, The Coral, The Temperance Movement, Oh Wonder, Calvin Harris, Bastille, The Last Shadow Puppets, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Jess Glynne, Kaiser Chiefs, Travis, Tinie Tempah, Tom Odell, Stiff Little Fingers, Shed Seven, Disciples, Rat Boy, Maxi Jazz & The E-Type Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, Faithless, Major Lazer, James Bay, Jake Bugg, Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls, Craig David’s TS5, Maximo Park, John Grant, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, FIDLAR and Blossoms.
Tickets for T in the Park 2016 are on sale now and remain at the same price for a fourth year running. Their new home Strathallan Castle is centrally located in the heart of the Perthshire countryside, approximately one hour away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Lying on an estate sprawling 1000 acres, surrounded by woodland, the site has expanded for 2016 with the Main Arena now a quarter bigger in size and the campsite increasing by a larger amount.
Calvin Harris will make a return to T in the Park to headline the Main Stage on Saturday night at Strathallan Castle and one of the world’s biggest rock bands, the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to T in the Park for the first time in a decade to bring the festival to an epic close when they headline the Sunday night. The California rockers will treat fans to hits from their back catalogue, as well as new material, with a new album reportedly due out early summer. The band have only played T in the Park once before when they headlined the Main Stage in 2006.
