Kasabian, The Prodigy, Twin Atlantic and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds have been unveiled as headline acts at this year's T in the Park festival.

Organisers announced the line-up having previously revealed that The Libertines will play Scotland's biggest music festival.

Stereophonics, Avicii, DJ and producer David Guetta, Sam Smith and Fatboy Slim will also perform.

This summer's event will be the first held at T in the Park's new home in the grounds of Strathallan Castle in Perthshire, where music fans will gather between July 10 and 12.

The festival, which celebrated its 21st birthday last year, has been staged at the disused Balado airfield in Kinross-shire for much of the last two decades.

Festival director Geoff Ellis said: "This year is going to be a very special one for T in the Park as we make the beautiful grounds of Strathallan Castle our new home and we're thrilled that some of the biggest artists in the world will be joining us in this historic first year.

"We're hugely excited to announce some big names for the festival, including British rock legends The Libertines, Kasabian and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, huge global EDM superstars Avicii and David Guetta, and seminal dance acts Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy - it's going to be some house-warming party.

"Every year, artists tell us that our audience is one of the most enthusiastic in the world and that they love to play T in the Park because of the wonderful welcome they receive.

"We'd like to thank our incredible audience for making this festival so special and we can't wait to welcome you all to our beautiful new home.
