RATM confirm themselves, The Verve, Kings of Leon and REM for T in the Park 2008
Constantly struggling against the man, even when he comes in the form of a beverage-sponsored rock festival, Rage Against the Machine have leaked the line-up for this year’s T in the Park.
Which many lead you to believe that the band themselves are playing – and you would be, of course, right; Morello, de la Rocha et al. headlining Saturday alongside the Verve (Fri), R.E.M. (Sun) and Kings of Leon, which to Drowned in Sound’s ears make four, though there remains the possibilities that a) this line-up is wrong; and b) RATM have self-promoted themselves to ‘top billing’ before leaking the line-up and adding in the likes of Amy Winehouse and Jack Penate through malice.
It’s hard to say, but if all we have is conjecture then conject (?) we will – the Prodigy! Stereophonics… Hot Chip!
The lot, below:
The Pigeon Detectives
Reverend And The Makers
Sons and Daughters
Band of Horses
The Ting Tings
T in the Park will takeover Balado in Kinross, Scotland from the 11th ‘til the 13th of July. Tickets on sale tomorrow (Sat 16 Feb) at a price of £160 for the weekend (camping included).
