Pop festival of the week: T in the Park
Friday 05 July 2013
Missing Glastonbury already? Or did you miss it? Scotland's biggest festival is here for you either way, offering some of the same from Glasto alongside a smattering of fresh pickings. Leading the charge from Worthy Farm is Friday's chalk/cheese headline pairing, indie bumpkins Mumford and Sons and dance earth-makers Chase and Status.
Elsewhere over the weekend, fellow Glasto survivors include Foals, Dizzee Rascal, Jake Bugg and Johnny Marr, while non-Glasto acts gearing up to T-off include Kraftwerk, My Bloody Valentine, Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Frank Ocean and, closing the weekend in a surge of strapping choruses, the Killers.
