Scotland’s biggest festival starts tomorrow and with possibly the best line up of any UK festival this year, picking which sets you see is going to be difficult. With a massive six stages and over a quarter of a million people expected to attend, 2016 is set to the biggest year yet. So here at Debut, Rebecca Sweeney has a rundown of some of the most anticipated artists that you need to catch.
The radio one DJ and presenter, famous for hosting the epic electronic dance music show, will offer the perfect set to get you in the mood to party on Friday evening. From personal experience, her set at Manchester’s Parklife festival in 2015 was a massive highlight. What’s more? If you’re not heading to TITP this year, you can still catch Annie’s festival set live on Radio One.
Catfish and the Bottlemen
Catfish are the new kids in the block of the alternative-indie scene. Hailed as ‘the new Arctic Monkeys’ after winning best newcomer at the Brits, this band will be massive in a few years so make sure you catch them on the more intimate Radio 1 stage whilst you can; these guys could be headliners in a few years. Catch them on the Radio One stage on Saturday evening.
A jack of all trades. He’s a DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer. He has also been responsible for some of the biggest and most recognisable songs of the last few years and with such widespread appeal, this is one set that you and all your friends can enjoy together. His headline slot at Isle of Wight Festival is 2014 was possibly the best 90 minutes of my life, so don’t miss him at T. Catch him on the main stage on Saturday night.
By Sunday night, you may want more of a chilled out vibe and nobody does that better than James Bay. Chaos and the Calm remains one of the biggest albums of the last couple of years and hearing it live is simply glorious. It’s also a great chance to hear some of his new stuff so make sure to catch him on the main stage on Sunday evening.
Coming from Manchester, this band are like royalty to me. However Liam Fray’s lyrics are so relatable that everybody will love them. With four albums under their belt and a fifth one soon to follow, this set will be full of variety and will bring back that grungy indie vibe that you forgot you loved so much. Catch them on the main stage on Friday evening.
