The Libertines

The punk rock foursome are the first band to be announced for the Scottish festival.

The Libertines have been announced as the first headliner for T In The Park. The festival takes place at Strathallan Castle between July 10th and 12th.

Geoff Ellis, the festival director, said "The Libertines are a truly iconic British band, revered as cult heroes by a generation of music fans and adored by the Scottish crowd. They chose Scotland as the destination for their live return on home soil last June, and raised the roof of the Barrowlands with two exhilarating shows. 

"We can’t wait to welcome them back in what is a historic year for T in the Park, as we take up residency at our beautiful new home, Strathallan Castle. It’s going to be a very special year for T in the Park, and we can’t wait to welcome you all to Strathallan."

The Libertines are currently working on a new album. It'll be their first record since the eponymous The Libertines record in 2004.
