The second biggest festival in the UK, T in the Park, is back this weekend with another huge lineup as the legendary weekender celebrates its 20th birthday. This year's headliners include Rihanna, Mumford and Sons, the Killers and David Guetta and is set to be a stormer. The on-stage magic happens on the 12th-14th July, though the Balado campsite opening on the 11th for the super keen festival goers out there.
It's not all about big name headliners though, as Glasgow's own Soma Records and King Tut's will both be hosting their own stages across the weekend, bringing some of Glasgow's indie rock and dance music scenes to the masses.
The Slam Tent, hosted by the guys at Soma Records, will feature some of Glasgow clubbing's biggest names like Jackmaster, Joy Orbison, Maya Jane Coles and of course, Slam themselves. This tent is infamous for its thumping bass, booming sound system and killer light shows, creating a very special club in the countryside.
King Tut's is one of Glasgow's best-known and best-loved venues for alternative live music, so with their very own tent at T, you can expect the best in rock and indie talent, with intimate vibes and awesome sound. Prepare yourself for brilliant live acts such as Kraftwerk, Alt-J, Disclosure and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's taking centre stage in this legendary festival tent.
If the thought of not showering and calling a tent home for a whole weekend makes you shudder in your wellies, but you don't want to miss out on the fun, Slam have got stay-at-home Glasgwegians covered with Return to Mono; Slam Tent Afterparty. The Slam DJs will still be hosting their popular twice monthly club night this Friday at the Sub Club but this time giving it a special festival twist in preparation for the weekend's antics. It's set to be a big night out in Glasgow and well worth attending to catch a taste of the festival vibe without having to chew on a three-day bender.
This weekend looks set to be the best of the year and that's just the weather (sun, lots and lots and lots of sun), so there's no need to worry about your tent flooding, or your beer stash floating away. Simply pack your sunnies (and your suncream) and have one cracking weekend of summertime partying.
So where will you be this weekend, raving with the dance crowd in the Slam Tent or rocking out with cool indie kids at the King Tut's Stage?
