A massive festival with a friendly atmosphere sounds ideal doesn't it? T in the Park does seem to have its fans - our ticket link has had comments from satisfied customers of all ages declaring the 2009 weekend in July (8th to the 11th) to be 'very safe and secure' and 'unforgettable'. Looking at this year's line-up I would suggest the latter certainly becoming a buzz-word for this year's event.
Eminem has been confirmed to appear as one of the headliners during this summer's really stunning line-up that reads like a playlist for euphoria. Muse, Kasabian, Prodigy, Jay-Z, Dizzee Rascal, Stereophonics, Florence and the Machine, Faithless, La Roux, Biffy Clyro and Temper Trap also join the throng.
Eminem hasn't played at a UK festival since 2001 and with the critical success of his recent album, 'Relapse' ('refilled' in December of course) plus his million-selling 'Slim Shady' and 'Marshall Mathers' sets, is sure to give the weekend a real send-off. He might be a potty-mouth but he can rap.
Unlike Muse, who instead rock their little white socks off without needing to flash tats or dick about with posturing. New single 'Resistance' hits the shops this week (or slyTunes if that's your thing) and the album of the same name continues to shift scary amounts, despite not winning a BRIT this year (which tells you a lot about the BRITs methinks).
One band who did win something at the comedy night in Earl's Court, was Kasabian who have also just recently released a new single in the form of 'Vlad the Impaler' and are also still celebrating after reaching number 4 in the Allgigs Albums of 2009 chart [a better indicator of all things good than a BRIT, methinks? - Impartial Ed].
Tickets for T in the Park are available this Friday (26th Feb) at 9AM, in a combination of camping and non-camping tickets.
