LOOK WHO'S COMING TO T; Monkeys, Coldplay set for Balado.


ARCTIC Monkeys and Coldplay will join Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye, Plan B and Jessie J at T in the Park this year.

The organisers are offering a real mish-mash of sounds to keep music fans happy. There will be a host of stadium bands, including Blink 182 and Foo Fighters, joining urban, pop and dance acts from the UK and US.

After working on a new album, Alex Turner and his band Arctic Monkeys will return to the stage to showcase their latest offerings to 85,000 revellers at the festival in Balado.

Alex's Shadow Puppet bandmate Miles Kane is also set to perform.

Chris Martin and his band, Coldplay, make a welcome return to Balado following their bill-topping appearance in 2003.

Foo Fighters will headline the main stage.

DF Concerts and founding partners Tennent's Lager have managed to secure the cream of British music for the festival on July 8-10. Plan B and Jessie J will join fellow Br it award winner Tinie Tempah on the bill.

Pop acts The Saturdays, Elizah Doolittle and recently "'retired" outfit The Streets will also perform, with Scots talents The View and KT Tunstall.

Tom Jones will grace the green, green grass of Balado, with Debbie Harry and Blondie completing the golden oldies offerings.

Pulp will also reunite with a fresh approach for 2011.

US acts this year include Ke$ha, My Chemical Romance, Brandon Flowers, Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. Beats come from electro acts Deadmau5, Pendulum, Chase and Status, Diplo, Josh Wink and Slam.

Manic Street Preachers, All Time Low, White Lies, Cast, You Me At Six, Crystal Castles, Ocean Colour Scene, Eels, Hurts, Bright Eyes, The Vaccines, Noah and the Whale, House Of Pain, Imelda May, Bloody Beetroots, Death Crew 77, Vitalic and Stornoway complete the line-up.

DF Concerts festival director Geoff Ellis said yesterday: "I'm proud to deliver a whole host of bands, including many that T in the Park fans told us they wanted to see when we surveyed them post-event.

"We're delighted that T in the Park is the festival that bands want to play at and music lovers want to be at."
