Idlewild and more for T in the Park!
19 March 2003
Scottish favourites Idlewild will make a triumphant return to Balado this year to join in the celebrations at Scotland's biggest birthday party, T in the Park on 12th and 13th July. The Flaming Lips also join the bill, with a King Tut's Tent headline. Watch out for astral acoustics and fantastically bold sentiments, and perhaps the odd Robot costume. Also, confirmed for the King Tut's Tent are celtic favourites Snow Patrol, The Basement and The Futureheads.
Following a high pressure campaign from comedian Phil Kay, Radio 1 darlings and newcomers The Darkness will open the Main Stage on Sunday, fresh from supporting Def Leppard on their UK tour. In addition, ex-Symposium rockers Hell is for Heroes bring their hard earned (and well-deserved) rock-stripes to Stage 2 on Sunday.
Other recent announcements are Turin Brakes who fondly remember their performance at T in the Park 2001 as one of the highlights of their career. Six-piece Philadelphia hip hop outfit The Roots join them on Stage 2 bringing their innovative rhymecraft, jazzy instrumentation and human beatbox to the festival.
