T in the Park festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager today give fans even more reason to get excited as they reveal festival favourites The Killers as the third headliner of the 20th year celebrations, following yesterday’s announcement that Mumford & Sons and Rihanna will headline T in the Park over the 12th – 14th July 2013.
Bringing the bright lights of Vegas to the Scottish countryside, The Killers are sure to get the 20th year party going with their epic synth-driven rock ‘n’ roll. The group have a special bond with T in the Park – frontman Brandon Flowers joined his heroes New Order on stage for a stunning rendition of Crystal in 2005, and the band hailed their T in the Park set as one of their greatest ever gigs in 2007. Firm fan favourites, they shot straight to the top of the UK album chart in September with the release of their fourth consecutive Number 1 album Battle Born, and will make a triumphant return to the Main Stage next July.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T in the Park’s 20th edition. They’re one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over. With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we’re really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for 20 for our 20th year celebrations.”
George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager said: “As founding partner of T in the Park, Tennent’s are exceptionally proud to have been part of this fantastic festival since it began back in 1993. With yet more great artists announced today, T in the Park 2013 is already shaping up to be an incredible weekend, and we can’t wait to celebrate the festival’s 20th year with the T in the Park fans.”
