Festival are all about the headliners, right? And this weekend’s T In The Park will be no exception, right? Wrong!
Since its humble beginnings at Strathclyde Park in 1994, DF Concerts have prided themselves on an eclectic mix of both emerging and established talent at T In The Park every summer. 2014 is no different.
Pull yourself away from the Main Stage for a while this weekend and savour the best of what T In The Park REALLY has to offer!
