Jose Gonzalez, Corinne Bailey Rae, Animal Collective, Regina Spektor, and Death Cab For Cutie will all play in the brand new
Pet Sounds Arena at this year's T In The Park. Read on for more bands...
The all new 8,000 capacity Pet Sounds Arena will replace the 2,000 capacity
Named after the 1966 Beach Boys album, the new venue has been created to celebrate cutting-edge international talent and, erm, Corinne Bailey Rae from Leeds, who will take to the stage on Saturday 8 July along
with previously announced acts Sigur Ros, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Ben Harper
and the Innocent Criminals.
On the Sunday (10 July) Death
Cab For Cutie, Jose Gonzales, Animal
Collective and Regina Spektor will do
the honours. Expect more to be announced soon.
Meanwhile, over to the Main Stage, The Subways have been announced to return
to Balado on the Sunday. On the same day, Dirty Pretty Things will
play the Radio 1/NME Stage, preceded by We Are Scientists. Wolfmother will play
the same tent on the Saturday.
Over at the King Tut's Tent, more additions have also been made by festival organisers. Former
Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli will entertain the crowd in the legendary tent on the Saturday while
The Futureheads take to the stage the following day.
TITP boss Geoff Ellis said: "We are really pleased to introduce the much
larger and all new Pet Sounds Arena this year in place of the X-Tent. Pet Sounds Arena seemed to be the perfect name for this
stage because it suggests something personal about the fan's love of music. It is also the name one of the most influential
albums of all time and we hope that this stage will house influential iconic artists for years to come. We are also increasing
the size of the Futures Stage in order to allow more fans to enjoy the artists on this stage too.
"The Main Stage is
looking as strong as usual with some of the biggest bands in the world right now, alongside a few bands that performed on
other stages last year and have just gone from strength to strength like Kaiser Chiefs and The Magic Numbers."
T In The Park 2006 takes place at Balado,
