Winner of BBC One’s The Voice Stevie McCrorie is the latest addition to the T In The Park line up for 2015, festival organisers DF Concerts have announced.
Stevie, a firefighter from Alva, is sure to receive a hero’s welcome when he returns to the festival. He first played T In The Park in 2010, when his musical collective MOPP landed a spot on the T Break Stage after entering Tennent’s Lager’s unsigned talent initiative. His application for The Voice was originally submitted by his firefighter mates, who applied for him to audition without telling him. Last week he emerged as the show’s winner, after his performances inspired the judges and millions of viewers across the UK. His winner’s single Lost Stars soared to no.1 in the iTunes Chart within hours of its release, and is sitting at the top of the Official UK Singles Charts, heading for a chart-topping debut on Sunday. He’ll play T In The Park on Saturday 11th July.
“Growing up in Scotland, I dreamed of being able to play T in the Park, there’s always been something magical about the festival to me since I was a teenager! I played the T Break Stage in 2010 with a collaborative project called MOPP, but to return to the festival this year as a solo artist is going to be really special.” – Stevie McCrorie
Some of the biggest names in music are heading for Scotland this summer for T In The Park’s debut outing at Strathallan Castle over 10th – 12th July, including headliners Kasabian, The Libertines, Avicii and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, plus David Guetta, The Prodigy, Sam Smith, The Script, Stereophonics, Rudimental, Twin Atlantic, Jamie T, Mark Ronson (DJ set), The War on Drugs, Afrojack and many more.
“Stevie is an incredible talent – he’s no stranger to music fans in Scotland though, having gigged for years as MOPP and also Stevie and the Moon, so his return to T In The Park is sure to be a very special moment for him and for those in the crowd.” – Festival Director Geoff Ellis
