Arctic Monkeys have just been confirmed as the a headliner for next year’s T In The Park festival.
The Sheffield band, who released their fifth album AM earlier this year, are the first headliner to be announced for the festival – which takes place in Kinross in Scotland from 11-13 July 2014.
In announcing the news, festival director Geoff Ellis said:
We’re thrilled to announce Arctic Monkeys as our first headliners for T in the Park 2014. After this year’s fantastic 20th year celebrations, we asked our audience who they’d like to see at next year’s festival and Arctic Monkeys came top of the poll, so we’re really pleased to be able to confirm them for T in the Park. When they take to the stage in Glasgow this week they’ll prove exactly why they’re one of the greatest live acts around, and I’m sure we can look forward to another phenomenal set at T in the Park. We have many more fantastic acts in store which we’ll announce next year, and can’t wait to see you all again in July.
Arctic Monkeys made the slightly less verbose statement of:
We are delighted to be playing T in the Park and look forward to a great night with our Scottish fans.
The announcement coincides with a limited number of tickets for the festival going on sale this Friday (22 November).
