With just hours to go till the 20th anniversary of Scotland’s most famous music festival gets underway, Gutter UK give you our top tips on the bands you MUST see this weekend at Balado . . .

Mumford & Sons (Friday, Main Stage)

Following a stellar set at Glastonbury a few weekends ago, Marcus Mumford & Co are poised for a debut headline-slot that T will undoubtedly never forget. With second studio effort, “Babel” ruling the UK album chart for the second time since its release last year, this is set to be one of the unmissable performances of T20.

The Script (Saturday, Main Stage)

Irish “man-band”, The Script are set to melt hearts this weekend with their brand of easy listening pop/rock and balladeering. With three albums now under their belts, The Script are the “cool Westlife” and the only way you’ll be permitted to enjoy a soppy sonnet at a festival.

MS MR (Saturday, Transmissions Stage)

The New York duo are bringing their unique hybrid of dream pop and alternative dark wave to Balado for the first time this weekend in support of new album, “Secondhand Rapture”.

Texas (Friday, Radio 1 Stage)

Scottish Veterans, Texas are celebrating 25 years in the music business this year while Sharleen Spitiri is still one of the coolest and foxiest frontwomen on the scene. Expect to hear old favourites, “Halo”, “Black Eyed Boy”, “In Demand”, “Everyday Now” and “Say What You Want” as well as material from latest studio album, “The Conversation”.

The LaFontaines (Sunday, BBC Introducing)

Also flying the Saltire this summer are homegrown talent, The LaFontaines who have landed a coveted slot on the BBC Introducing Stage this weekend. With an already strong, Scottish following, this will be the ideal way to introduce this Motherwell-bred band to those who are missing out!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Sunday, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut Tent)

Karen O and Co made a triumphant return earlier this year with fourth studio effort, “Mosquito” and are set to delight fans at T this summer with their brilliant back catalogue of post-punk pop at its very best.

CHVRCHES (Sunday, Transmissions Stage)

Glasgow based-band, CHVRCHES have been causing a stir on the local scene of late so it’s only fitting that we share their talent with the rest of you; for fans of eletro-pop with a synth-soaked side, this band are unmissable!

Jake Bugg (Friday, Radio 1 Stage)

The buzz surrounding this young singer/songwriter has only heightened in the past 12 months and catapulted Jake Bugg to impressive festivals slots so early in his career. “The Council Estate Bob Dylan” will be playing material from his self-titled debut this weekend.

Nina Nesbitt (Saturday, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut Tent)

Scottish singer/songwriter, Nina has enjoyed great success with debut EP, “Boy” and recent release, “Stay Out”. An angelic voice and face for those who are partial to a little acoustic treat.

The View (Saturday, Main Stage)

Dundee-based band, The View have relished a phenomenal 12 months following the release of fourth studio album, “Cheeky For A Reason” last summer and never fail to deliver in a live setting. You’d be mad to miss them!

Deap Vally (Sunday, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut Tent)

Californian twosome, Deap Vally have brought blues-tinted rock swaggering back onto our iPods with debut album, “Sistrionix”, released earlier this month. Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards have brought girl power back to the forefront of music; ideal for those who like their girls with a little bite.

The Lumineers (Saturday, Main Stage)

US success-story, The Lumineers are Balado-bound this weekend bringing their folk/pop sound and style with them; not a far cry from Mumford & Sons so a MUST for those who love a good ol’ shindig.

Alt-J (Saturday, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut Tent)

One of the most talked about bands of 2013, Alt-J are out is support of debut album, “An Awesome Waves”, released in May, bringing their psychedelic and experimental folk/rock to T20.
