T in the Park weekend [10 Jul 2006|08:07pm]

diamond_bob
[ mood | tired ]

Arrived home a few hours ago from a fantastic weekend in Scotland at the T in the Park festival. I saw some great bands, some I've seen before and some that I saw for the first time. Damian Marley was absolutely amazing on saturday night even if his sound check was the longest in the history of sound checks, but he was worth waiting for, he and his band were well worth the entrance fee alone. Saturdays highlights included waiting in the pouring rain for Goldfrapp to appear only to be told by her manager that her doctor advised her not to sing due to illness, but to her credit she came on stage and performed a shortened show. I missed my favorite band on saturday afternoon, I missed Placebo because I wanted to see the Kooks, I wasn't disappointed. I also missed the headliners on saturday the Red Hot Chili Peppers on a friends advice, he told me that I would enjoy going to see the Scandinavian band Sigur Ros, he was right, they were a good end to a good day. Other bands I managed to see saturday included Maximo Park, Kaiser Chiefs, Wolfmother (wow is the only word for these, I have to have their debut album) The Cribs, The Feeling, The Rifles and Ben Harper.

After all the rain the previous day it was a pleasure to see daylight when I awoke. Sunday like saturday saw too many great bands playing at the same time so I was unable to catch everyone. The first band I saw was a folk band from the States, The Weepies, what a great band to start off a lazy sunday morning, this was the first band I checked out on iTunes on getting home, that's how good they were. But sunday for me was all about the headliners on the main stage, The Who. Wow wow wow wow. This may be the only time I ever get to see them play live and what a sureal moment. I saw The Who!!!!! Pete and Roger expel so much energy on stage that they defy their age. They covered all the old classics, My Generation, Pinball Wizard, The Seeker and many many more. I was thinking to myself that when I was younger and my folks would say to me 'this is not music, it wasn't like this in our day' My folks were right, they listened to The Who, always listen to your parents!!! Sundays biggest crowd I think belonged to the Arctic Monkeys, I didn't catch much of these boys, I've seen 'em before and instead I slunk away to one of the smaller tents where another band that hail from Sheffield were playing, Milburn. Arctic Monkeys were once the support for Milburn but due to management and hype Milburn have been left behind, watch out for these young fella's, they are much in the same mold as their stable mates Arctic Monkeys. Other bands on view sunday were We Are Scientists, Delays, Dirty Pretty things ( I hate to say this but Babyshambles is much better in my opinion ) The Spinto Band ( another new band for me and another band I have to add to my cd collection ) O.B.E and a traditional scottish band by the name of Koba, I never knew traditional Scottish music could be so appealing, it was amazing to see a tent so full in a morning with happy dancing people. Late in the evening I gave up the chance to see The Automatic as I see these boys in October in order to get a good spot near the front to see the band of the weekend The Who.

A couple of 'rock 'n' roll moments to tell you about. Roger Daltrey appearing on stage with a cup of tea, let this be an example to everyone!! and being locked in the car at 4 in the morning, I'm in desperate need to pee and my mate is in his one man tent with the car keys having locked the doors. I'm pulling at the handles, pressing buttons trying to deactivate the central locking but to no avail and the back window would only open halfway, I had to improvise, I was desperate :D

Now I am very very tired, sleeping in a car is hard work three nights in a row.

T Announcement.... [07 Feb 2006|07:04pm]

new_born14
There's going to be an announcement on Tickets and the line up on Monday about this year's T In The Park. There's a news report on www.virtualfestivals.co.uk. Here it is in full:




Lineup news for V and T In The Park
07 February 2006

Two of the UK's biggest festivals have announced details of when they'll be unveiling their first batch of confirmed bands - and as always it's bound to be the headliners...

T In The Park will be making an announcement at its launch party in Glasgow on Monday (13 February). We'll have the news here as it breaks just after 1pm.

The Scottish festival, winner of last year's 'Best Major Festival' in the UK Festival Awards, is once again destined to have a collosal lineup of UK and international acts. It all takes place at Balado, nr Kinross, Ayreshire, on 10-11 June.

V Festival is another of the majors that will be vying for the biggest and best lineup of the summer. Organisers have confirmed that tickets will go on sale on Friday, 3 March, meaning that the first lineup announcement will probably be made some time towards the end of February.

V Festival 2006 takes place at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffs, on 19-20 August.

Click on the links below for more on T In The Park and V Festival, including the latest rumours doing the rounds on who might be playing...




Ok, so there got two things wrong that I feel need to be pointed out.
1) It's in Perth and Kinross, not Ayreshire and
2) It's on the 8th and 9th of July, not the 10th and 11th of June.

But still, this is exciting!

T In The Park 2006 [06 Feb 2006|03:46pm]

new_born14

I feel compelled to update this community and shed some light on the darkness that is T In The Park 2006, which is the 8th and 9th of July this year.

  • The official website has changed, T will be launching soon. If I can remeber righty, it was only a matter of weeks last year once the site changed... so keep an eye on that...

 

Virtual Festivals has listed a few rumoured bands:

  • Franz Ferdinand
  • Simple Minds
  • Scissor Sisters
  • Morrisey
  • Richard Ashcroft
  • Arctic Monkeys
  • Boy Kill Boy
  • Placebo
  • Hard-Fi
  • KT Tunstall

But most excitingly some local papers have been speculating that The Who may be headlining this year's TITP. These are ALL rumours, mind you.

 

Virtual Festivals - T In The Park mini-site HERE

T In The Park Official HERE

 

So, now that there is some "news" to post on, who does everyone want to see at this year's T?

And on the matter of tickets - the VF forums were discussing this - last year it was Feb the 12th, so this year's cannot be that far away fro being released....

My Stolen Contraband [12 Jul 2005|05:48pm]

new_born14

Ok guys - I just thought I would let you all see my stolen contraband from this years signing tent at T. I got the poster signed by Gordy from Bloc Party (the pen was running out so it's not exactly clear) and the banner lined the signing table - this very nice man who asked for it first was kind enough to share it with one of my friends who dropped off part of it this morning:

Just thought you all may wantt o see this, from Virtual Festivals:

T In The Park bosses are aiming to steal Glastonbury's crown as the UK's number one festival by increasing its capacity to 120,000 over the next five years.


Just under 70,000 revellers soaked up the atmosphere at this weekend's festival in Kinross, but with no Glastonbury next year T In The Park is set to be the hottest ticket in the UK.

Organisers have already released 20,000 tickets for the event, which will be sold at this year's prices from 9am tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

Geoff said: "Glastonbury is the oldest festival in Britain but there's no reason why we can't be on a par with it. With no Glastonbury next year, it puts T in the spotlight as an international event. The site can take much more in terms of capacity and we would like to see it go up, but we will do it gradually. A five-year plan is what we would like and we can increase it by about 10,000 a year.

"We wouldn't want to increase it dramatically in one go, but we need to get this year over with first. We will then debrief with police, medics and council officials and see what we can do for next year. The important thing is we don't want to lose the atmosphere. Bands love T because it's so relaxed."

However some fans were left unhappy at the Balado site's change in layout this year. Several festival goers have contacted Virtual Festivals describing a bottle neck that formed where the Main Stage and Radio 1/NME crowds met.

Apparently fans at the right hand side of the Main Stage found themselves in the middle of surges towards a nearby bar and the popular second stage.

One said: "It's been a nightmare trying to get back and forward between the stages when a decent band is on. They haven't left much space, literally just meters, by the bar to get through and people were getting really annoyed about fans constantly pushing past them as they tried to watch bands on the Main Stage."

However, this appeared to be the only fault in an otherwise fantastic festival, which celebrated its 12th birthday with cracking sets from The Killers, Keane, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Travis and loads more.

By Saturday afternoon tops were off and female fans enjoyed the sun minus their bikinis. The temperature continued to rise yesterday and fans sweltered in one of the hottest T In The Parks in history. The first aid tent was inundated with fans needing sun cream.

The event passed off peacefully, with only 48 arrests made. Mark Hamilton, chief superintendent of Tayside Police, said: "The atmosphere on site today is extremely good. People are enjoying the bands, the sun and are very relaxed. So far, the number of people that have been apprehended is less than last year."

Full reviews will be posted here soon.

What did you see? Who was best? Worst? Did you get drunk? Pass out?

Tell us!
I’ve got a big long essay up, but basically the highlight for me was Rilo Kiley. I also enjoyed watching people in the Silent Disco, did anyone try that? I was tempted but never had anyone to go in with.

I thought the site itself was a lot better this year, loads more variety in food for a start :)

[ mood | sleepy ]

The Daily Record have said that Tony Christie will be playing T. We all knew this was coming, everyone’ll go for that one song and then piss off blah blah, I’m not going to dwell on it.

More exciting news is that hard rockers Death From Above 1979 have confirmed their appearance at T in the Park. Their website says they will be playing on the Saturday. If you haven’t heard of these guys, they will blow you away. Full of energy and most of the songs are about sex to boot. Pretty unique, there’s only two of them: one on drums and one on bass. My guess is they’ll be in the X Tent (indeed, that’s the only stage left to fill up now, anyway). I’m really excited about these guys as they’re one of the few touring bands that I wanted to see this year but missed!

Also, KT Tunstall stated in the Times’ Seven Days magazine that she’ll be appearing at T (although T does not appear on her website’s gig page), not heard of her but that’s never stopped me before...

El Presidente will be playing the X Tent; the announcement was made ages ago on their website, and they confirmed it on CD:UK recently (apparently). Who are they? Well, from their website:

WHO IS EL PRESIDENTE?

He has no passport, no fingerprints and no record of a birth certificate exists in any known country and yet he has been on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for close to a decade now. Counter-terrorism officers have described him as the most dangerous musician in the world and the lyrics to his music have been banned in forty-seven countries, including Lithuania and Mexico. Airport security agents have been ordered to shoot El Presidente or any member of his Shadow Government on sight if they are seen trying to leave or enter the country.

after all those other sources confirming stuff, the official website has finally been updated:
Stage 2 sees The Bravery and The Ordinary Boys join the party on Saturday, while Sunday welcomes Josh Homme side project the Eagles of Death Metal. The King Tut’s Tent will host Suzanne Vega, The Futureheads and Rooster on Saturday, and Sons & Daughters, Bright Eyes and The Black Velvets on Sunday.

Last but definitely not least, the Super Furry Animals and The Tears announce they will headline the X-Tent on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

all these i’d previously mentioned, except Suzanne Vega - don’t know who she is, does anyone else?

X Tent headliners on Saturday: Super Furry Animals
King Tut’s (day unspecified): Sons and Daughters, Black Velvets, and Bright Eyes.

I’m quite pleased with this little lot (with the exception of the Black Velvets, who are pretty average), as I haven’t seen any of them but have also heard good things, particularly about Bright Eyes. Quite surprised to see the Super Furries headlining the X Tent, as they’re quite a big band.

That gives us the full set of headliners for Saturday: Foo Fighers on the Main Stage, New Order on Stage 2, Doves in King Tut’s, Super Furries in the X Tent, and (presumably) Death In Vegas in the Slam Tent. I’m torn already!

According to the Sun, The Ordinary Boys and The Bravery have both been confirmed. My guess is they’ll both be on Stage 2; The Bravery are playing Oxygen in Ireland on the Saturday, which means they’ll play T on the Sunday. (source)

The Frames are apparently playing too. They’re playing Oxygen on the Saturday, so again, T on the Sunday.. probably in the X Tent?

Bright Eyes is reported to be playing as well - headlining the X Tent maybe?

Also, The Longcut have self-confirmed (according to this eFestivals thread). My guess is they’ll be in the X Tent or maybe Stage 2.

Oh, and Interpol are headlining King Tuts, ahead of Ian Brown! I didn’t expect that (personally I think Ian Brown is shocking, but I’d imagine more people would want to see him than Interpol?). Thoughts?

TRANSPORT TO T IN THE PARK!!!

there are three buses running from east kilbride, hamilton and clarkston to t in the park and back again. there is a set time from each of the places on the friday 8th july and return home at 12.30pm from t in the park back to one of the three places.

the cost is £20 return. i think this beats the £16 return from glasgow, where you have to queue for hours, the buses stink of pish and the luggage just gets shoved next to you.

they are luxury coaches and no queues, with a direct route there.

if you want more information, and to book it, call 0771 7705 527.

i don't know the guy personally who's doing it, but he seems really decent and has it all organised, it's def. worth it than those shite buses from glasgow.

you need to call him between 9am-9pm tho.

comment if you wanna know anything, or if you've booked a place.

i'm going from hamilton.

from this post on the Slam Events forum:

The Story so far, and please note there are still quite a few to come!...We’re having to do a fair bit of to-ing, and fro-ing this year, so that’s why it’s taking so long...Sorry bout that, but it’ll all be worth it in the end, (hopefully!)

[ mood | drained ]

at their recent edinburgh gig, Bloc Party apparently confirmed they’re playing T; and the Record has said that Kaiser Chiefs are confirmed too. Of the NME Tour bands, only the Futureheads are now left to confirm. In all probability, they will too play (well, I sure hope so!).

athlete and QOTSA confirmed [23 Feb 2005|06:12pm]

smigs
they’re on the offical website’s lineup page, and there was an article in today’s Record. QOTSA Saturday, Athlete Sunday. Both are playing on the Sunday.

The article also says the festival site’s increased in size by 1/3. I hope they kept the X-Tent near the entrance!

*all* TITP '06 ticket immediately after '05 [22 Feb 2005|08:51pm]

[ mood | shocked ]

According to this daily record piece, all T in the Park 2006 tickets are going to go on sale immediately after this year’s festival! Geoff Ellis predicts it’ll ‘sell out in a week’. Ridiculous! I think it’s Leeds ‘06 for me, if I go anywhere at all.

Oh yeah... and New Order are playing this year too..
