Yesterday Scottish giant T In The Park announced Rihanna and Mumford & Sons will headline the 20th anniversary edition of their festival, this morning The Killers were confirmed to headline the third and final night.

The band have a long running bond with the festival, having named it one of their greatest ever gigs in 2007, and return in 2013 with their fourth consecutive number one album 'Battle Born'.

T in the Park will be celebrating its 20th year at Balado, Kinross, Scotland from Friday 12 - Sunday 14 July 2013, with early entry available on Thursday 11 July.

Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T in the Park’s 20th edition. They’re one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over. With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we’re really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for 20 for our 20th year celebrations.”

The band join previously announced acts: Paloma Faith, Of Monsters and Men, The Script and 2012 Mercury Prize winners Alt-J.

Nottingham newcomer Jake Bugg, winners of the 'Best Newcomer Award' at the UK Festival Awards 2012 this week, will also appear on the T In The Park line-up for 2013.

Snow Patrol, The Stone Roses and Kasabian headlined this year’s event – read our T In The Park 2012 review here.
