Thursday 18 April 2013
Alternative rock band My Bloody Valentine are to make their T in the Park debut as part of the festival's 20th anniversary line-up.
The Irish band, who are in their 30th year in the industry, are the latest to join the bill for the summer festival in Kinross taking place on July 12-14.
They fell under the international spotlight with their debut album Isn't Anything then gained widespread acclaim for the follow-up, Loveless.
After a 22-year wait, their third album, m b v, was released in February this year on their website. It proved so popular it caused the website to crash.
During their T in the Park appearance, My Bloody Valentine are expected to showcase past tracks such as You Made Me Realise and Only Shallow alongside new songs.
This year's festival bill has a variety of music including R&B, folk, techno, rock and punk.
Headliners announced so far for the main stage are Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers. Also performing are Kraftwerk, Stereophonics, Calvin Harris, Editors, Emeli Sande and Jake Bugg.
Organisers expect 85,000 people on each of the three days, and tickets are on sale now.
