Scotland’s biggest festival came to a climatic close yesterday (Sunday, 14 June 2013) with headlining performances from The Killers, Mumford & Sons and Rihanna over the three day event.
In it’s 20th year T in the Park (advertised as T20 to celebrate the festivals 20th birthday since conception in 1994) had the biggest lineup to date.
There was a multitude of Scottish performers at the coveted event including Dundee rockers The View, Twin Atlantic, singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt and a jaw dropping, colourful and energetic performance from Dumfries local boy, Calvin Harris.
Headline slots were held by American superstar and Jay-Z’s prodigy, Rihanna (Saturday, 13 June 2013) who went wild during her performance in an animal print outfit, nice guys of pop rock, The Killers (Sunday, 14 June 2013) and English folk phenomenon Mumford & Sons (Friday, 12 June 2013) who treated the thousand strong crowd with melodic banjo classics and bringing Scotland to Scotland with a bagpipe performance of ‘Flower of Scotland’.
Despite Mumford & Sons looking like “posh farmers with banjos” big fan, Jake Bugg and his band performed a semi-acoustic set to the Scottish crowd and seemed overwhelmed at the positive feedback he was getting from everyone. From a full sing along to ‘Seen it All’ and ‘Lightening Bolt’ the Nottingham lad performed a flawless set.
T in the Park is over for another year and the biggest festival in Scotland will be welcoming more music lovers to the green fields of Balado, Kinross at the same time for 2014. The festivities for the events 20th anniversary were faultless and it is sure to be hard to top next year.
