T in the Park secures the biggest bands from across the globe whilst consistently promoting the best new and breakthrough talent.
This year is no exception, with an array of 'ones to watch' at T in the Park 2012 and newly announced Josh Osho and Jake Bugg are set to wow the 85,000 strong crowd per day over the weekend of 6th – 8th July.
Described by The Guardian’s Paul Lester as a ‘a grittier John Lennon’, South London singer/songwriter Josh Osho comes to T in the Park fresh from the release of his hotly anticipated first album L.I.F.E (Learning Is For Ever). Osho’s first single Redemption Days enjoyed huge critical acclaim last year, becoming record of the week on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 1 Xtra, all of whom have consistently championed this rising star ever since.
Also added to this year’s line-up is 18-year-old acoustic folk artist Jake Bugg. His beautiful melodies have already earned him accolades such as Zane Lowes ‘Hottest Record in the World’ for single Lightning Bolt and a spot supporting fellow T in the Park artist Michael Kiwanuka on tour. Inspired by folk legends such as Donovan, Don McLean and Bob Dylan Jake Bugg’s mix of soft acoustic melodies and honest, gentle lyrics make for the perfect folk ballad. This summer’s appearance at T in the Park is just the start of many great things to come for this extremely talented young songwriter.
There’s a lot to see at T in the Park this summer and fans can expect to discover some hidden gems amongst the well-known music maestros. With 3 amazing days filled with the best live talent from the Friday and the opportunity for fans to start their T in the Park journey by checking into the campsite and checking out the all-new Sunset Strip entertainment zone on the Thursday, T in the Park 2012 is all set up to be the ultimate festival four-day weekend, on a massive scale.
