The Prodigy and Faithless are set to appear on the live dance front with Carl Cox, David Guetta, Slam and Erol Alkan among those to get behind the decks.
Speaking about the announcement, organiser Geoff Ellis said: "Our line-up is already undeniably strong and diverse this year and we’ve still got lots more up our sleeves to announce.
“Shaping the bill for Scotland's finest and favourite festival is an absolute honour and I can’t wait for July 8th when the campsite gates open for the Thursday night campers and the party begins in true T in the Park style. I’m delighted with our artist announcements and hope the T in the Park audience has another great weekend to remember!"
