Calvin Harris - T in the Park 2012 review
'Another excellent showing'
08 July 2012
King Tuts Wah Wah tent was plunged into darkness as the crowd screamed to announce the arrival of one their fellow Scot, Calvin Harris.
Taking to the decks with a massive Saltire across the screens, he wasted no time, launching into 'I'm Not Alone'.
Despite the day's poor weather, and the tents marsh-like feel, the crowd were still jumping along as he played a mix of a DJ set and his hit singles.
He showed no nervousness and complete coolness despite being scheduled against festival favourites The Stone Roses and his fellow global dance superstar David Guetta, and he seemed completely at home amongst his native crowd.
His act was superbly suited to the King Tuts tent, as he brought along a host of lighting tricks and lasers which complemented the already electric atmosphere.
He remixed Coldplay's 'Paradise', before whipping the crowd into a frenzy with his track with Kelis, 'Bounce'. He also included a mash up of Chemical Brothers 'Block-Rocking Beats' with Florence and the Machine's 'You Got The Love'.
The atmosphere in the tent was amazing as he mixed his chart smash with Rihanna 'We Found Love' with Daft Punk's 'Around The World' and Nicky Romero's 'Touslous'. It was followed by his current single 'Let's Go' with Ne-Yo.
The crowd erputed when he played 'Levels' by Avicii, a song so overplayed in the last twelve months that it's unreal, but it still went down very well with the late night revellers.
He ended the set with 'Feel So Close' and drew to a close another excellent showing at T in the Park for one of Scotland's homegrown heroes.
