The Killers will headline the 20th birthday celebrations of Scotland’s T In The Park festival in July 2013.
Following the previous announcements of Rihanna and Mumford and Sons as the main drawcards, festival organisers have also locked in the Las Vagas band in their only UK appearance listed outside of their gig at Wembley Stadium in late June.
T In The Park spokesperson Geoff Ellis told NME he was chuffed to have secured the band after they topped a festival fan poll.
“The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T in the Park’s 20th edition,” he said.
“They’re one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over.
“With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we’re really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for our 20th year celebrations.”
Alt-J, Jake Bugg, Paloma Faith, The Script and Of Monsters and Men have also been confirmed for the festival – with heaps more acts to be announced in early 2013.
T In The Park is at Balado Airfield, Scotland from July 12-14, 2013. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 7. For more information on tickets and the festival visit the official website here.
