Kasabian @ T in the Park 2012
The Scottish festival has once again came and gone for another year. T in the park is held at a disused airfield in Balado, Kinross-shire in the 2nd weekend of July each year.
After two fantastic days of performances from the likes of Stone Roses, Calvin Harris and Two Door Cinema Club, the 2012 festival came to a spectacular finish on Sunday night, with Kasabian closing up the 3 day long party.
The band from Leicestershire opened their set with ‘Days Are Forgotten’, before hitting ‘Shoot The Runner’ from the 2006 album Empire.
Despite the weather, this year’s festival saw the crowds coming in their masses, with as many as 85000 attendees. The rain was so bad that one venue, The Slam Tent was unable to open as scheduled, but the festival’s organiser Geoff Ellis said the music lovers wouldn’t let a bit of rain ruin their mood.
“The weather definitely brought some challenges but we were prepared and our team worked extremely hard to keep things on track, which was no mean feat.”
“It’s been another fantastic year. We have the best audience in the world here at T in the Park – our fans really make the festival, and this weekend they’ve proved that come rain or shine, the atmosphere is always incredible.
It was a dream come true to see The Stone Roses headline T in the Park, and a seminal moment in the festival’s history. It was celebration enough to hit record attendance this year with 85,000 fans per day but next year for the 20th year we’ll be pulling even more out the bag to ensure it will be the best birthday party T in the Parkers have ever seen.”
No one was left without a singalong this weekend, with 200 artists performing, there was a colourful array of different music styles to suit everyone who attended.
Gillian Cross, 34, Glasgow, commented: Kasabian were brilliant. They were well worth wading through all this mud for. Those who went home early missed a great gig; they’re just all lightweights. I loved ‘Shoot The Runner’.
