Arctic Monkeys to headline T in The Park 2014

Arctic Monkeys have been confirmed as headliners of  T in The Park 2014.

The Sheffield band are the first act to be confirmed for the 2014 instalment of the festival, which takes at Balado in Perth and Kinross from July 11 to 13.

Arctic Monkeys first played at T in the Park in 2006 and headlined five years later.

The band said in a statement: ‘We are delighted to be playing T in the Park and look forward to a great night with our Scottish fans.’

Festival director Geoff Ellis said of booking the band: “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.”

Tickets for T in The Park 2014 go on sale at 9am November 24.
