Rufus Wainwright has been confirmed to perform at this year’s T In The Park festival in Balado, near Kinross.
The cult singer-songwriter will play on Saturday July 7 as part of the Pet Sounds Arena bill, with the Saw Doctors already confirmed for that day.
Wainwright’s magnificent fifth solo album “Release The Stars” is due out this May and features more of the same lush harmonies and orchestration that has gained him so much acclaim from his previous albums.
Other new additions to the T In The Park festival line-up include stoner rockers Queens Of The Stone Age.
The band fronted by Josh Homme are currently in the studio recording their fifth studio album “Era Vulgaris”, and rumours are that Nine Inch Nail’s Trent Reznor and The Stroke’s Julian Casablancas have both contributed vocals to it.
The band will close the King Tuts Tent on Sunday July 8, sharing the bill with Editors, The Maccabees and Just Jack now confirmed for that day.
Headliners previously confirmed for the increased capacity three day festival taking place between July 6 and 8 are Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Snow Patrol.
