July 16, 2014

“An overwhelmingly underwhelming end to not only T in the Park but to the site that has become synonymous with the legendary music festival”

Tonight’s closing set was always destined to make T in the Park history and, with the onus on Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys to give Balado the send-off it deserved, expectations were understandably high.

T in the Park 2014: King Tut’s Tent Top 5

July 11, 2014

King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow is renowned for being one of the best live music venues in the UK and has been at the forefront of the Scottish live music scene since it first opened in 1990. The small venue, which has a capacity of only 300, has helped launch the careers of some of the biggest names in the music industry including Oasis, The Killers, Biffy Clyro, Paolo Nutini and Snow Patrol. It seems only fitting, then, that there is a tent dedicated to the legendary venue at T in the Park, Scotland’s largest music festival. We took a look at this year’s line-up and narrowed down our ‘Top 5’ 2014 King Tut’s Tent performers…
