English hip hop llovers Rizzle Kicks bring some sunshine to the T in the Park crowd with their own mix of chatty, tuneful banter to cheer T up. In the wind and the rain, Kicks' batter into fans' favourite 'Dreamer' before bouncing into the 'special' 'When I was a Youngster' which Jordan 'Rizzle' Stephens admits is "probably better in sunnier situations."

A short, and brief cover, of Ed Sheeran's 'You Need me Girl' is a curve ball for the crowd to keep us on our toes. And the unexpected 007 theme tune gets the crowd excited. 'Mamma do the Hump' sees T bouncing in sludge which has now replaced the grass, before an excellently timed 'Seven Nation Army' cover leaves the group breathless but the fans pleading for more.
 
The Rizzle lads have burst onto the UK music scene in the last twelve months and are quietly building a stunning back catalogue of happy - and festival friendly - tunes. And with that, there is a slight tease of the trumpet which only means one thing - here comes 'Down with the Trumpets' which leaves the Radio 1/NME arena totally breathless.
