Scotland’s first freelance cross-genre session orchestra The Rogue Orchestra will present a homage to David Bowie and Prince at this summer's T in the Park which returns to Strathallan Castle in Perthshire over full three days from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th July 2016.
Opening the Main Stage on Sunday the orchestra will honour both musical legends that music lost this year. David Bowie was due to headline T in the Park in 2004 but sadly had to bow out due to an injury. Festival Director Geoff Ellis had enquired about booking David Bowie each year for the festival hence and felt that a tribute was the right thing to do with the inspiration coming from the performance of Life on Mars by an organist at Kelvingrove which was sent to Geoff by a friend.
This year will see Rogue Orchestra bring their own unique take performing classical versions of some of David Bowie's best loved songs, finishing up with a Prince medley.
This year's line-up includes The Stone Roses, Calvin Harris, LCD Soundsystem, Chase & Status, Faithless, Bastille, The 1975, Disclosure, Courteeners, Alesso, Jamie xx, James Morrison, Frightened Rabbit, Oliver Heldens, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Hannah Wants, Bear’s Den, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Krept & Konan, The Coral, The Temperance Movement, Oh Wonder, The Last Shadow Puppets, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Jess Glynne, Kaiser Chiefs, Pete Tong, Wstrn, Travis, Tinie Tempah, Tom Odell, Jack Garratt, Stiff Little Fingers, Shed Seven, Disciples, Rat Boy, Maxi Jazz & The E-Type Boys, Major Lazer, James Bay, Jake Bugg, Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls, Lightning Seeds, Alessia Cara, Ash, Augustines, Sunset Sons, Borns, DMA's, Vant, The Struts, The Sherlocks, JR Green, Craig David’s TS5, Slaves, Maximo Park, John Grant, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, FIDLAR, Blossoms, and more.
