However, with over 200 acts playing across the three day festival, how do you pick who watch play live?! Don’t fret our lil’ camper buddies, Gutter HQ has the lowdown on The Top 10 UNMISSABLE Bands at TITP 2015 . . . You’re welcome!
Catfish & The Bottlemen
One of the most celebrated emerging talents of 2015 are playing The BBC Three/Radio 1 Stage on Sunday. The band, who formed in North Wales in 2007, scored a number one album with debut offering, “The Balcony” in September 2014.
He may be in his mid-60s, but Seasick Steve knows how to get down with the kids! The American blues musician takes on T’s Main Stage on Saturday. Seasick Steve has released seven studio albums since 2004, the latest being, “Sonic Soul Surfer”, which was released in March of this year.
Home-grown heroes, Twin Atlantic have come a long way since their T Break Stage debut in 2007; they are headlining TITP’s Main Stage on Saturday night. The band, from Glasgow, released their third LP, “Great Divide” in August 2014.
Alabama-born, Alabama Shakes are hitting up The Main Stage on Sunday. The band formed in 2010 and have since released 2 LPs; their 2012 debut, “Boys & Girls” and “Sound & Colour”, which was released in April 2015 and scored them a US number one album.
Irish blues-band, The Strypes are kicking off things on Saturday on The BBC Three/Radio 1 Stage. The band, from Cavan in Ireland, released their debut LP, “Snapshot” in September 2013; the follow up, “Little Victories” is due to drop later this month.
Home-grown talent, Neon Waltz are headlining The BBC Introducing Stage on Saturday night. The band, from Caithness in Inverness, formed in 2013 and made their TITP debut last summer with a slot on the legendary T Break Stage.
Marina & The Diamonds
Welsh singer/songwriter, Marina Diamandis is set to tear up King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut Tent on Saturday. “Froot” is the latest album from Marina & The Diamonds; it dropped in March of this year and follows her 2010 debut, “The Family Jewels” and 2012’s “Electra Heart”.
T just isn’t T without these guys! The Dundee-born band have become T regulars and favourites since making their debut in 2006. The band released their acclaimed debut, “Hats Off To The Buskers” in 2007 and fifth LP, “Ropewalk” is due to drop in September 2015. The View hit up The Main Stage on Sunday.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Headliner, Noel Gallagher is a smart, and deserved choice to close TITP 2015 on Sunday night. Having found fame as one half of Oasis, the older brother Gallagher has enjoyed massive success since breaking out on his own in 2009. Gallagher has released two LPs, to date; his self-titled 2011 debut and, “Chasing Yesterday”, which was released in February of this year.
The reunion that we thought would NEVER happen! Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have kissed and made up and are headlining T’s Main Stage on Saturday night! If you’re looking for a zesty, sweaty gig, then this is the slot for you! The recently reformed Libertines unveiled brand new single, “Gunga Din” last week, and revealed that their long-awaited third LP, “Anthems For Doomed Youth” is scheduled for release in September 2015. If Pete and Carl can put aside their petty squabbles and reform, surely Liam and Noel can’t be too far behind . . . And maybe Moz and Marr . . . No, I went too far, I know!
