Frank Ocean, Rita Ora, Tyler, The Creator And Earl Sweatshirt Join The T In The Park Bill 2013

T in the Park is gearing up for its 20th year celebrations over 12th - 14th July, and festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent's Lager have today added some top hip-hop talent to the bill, revealing that Odd Future trio Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, plus the UK's hottest R&B sensation Rita Ora, will be heading to Kinross this summer.
 
LA collective Odd Future (OFWGKTA) are one of the freshest, most inventive hip-hop groups around, and three of their finest lyrical talents Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt will add a dose of West Coast swagger to the T in the Park line-up this July. After first making an impression on the charts as a songwriter for acts including John Legend and Beyonc', Frank Ocean emerged into the spotlight when he hooked up with Odd Future. The self-released nostalgia, ULTRA. mixtape, plus gems like Novacane and Swim Good cemented his reputation as a star in his own right and caught the attention of  Kanye West and Jay-Z, who he went on to collaborate on their Watch the Throne album. Critics across the globe heaped praise on his debut studio album Channel Orange, and 2013 got off to a winning streak when he bagged both a Grammy and a BRIT Award. His T in the Park debut this July is not to be missed.
 
Fellow Odd Future member (and the collective's leader and co-founder) Tyler, the Creator is also Kinross-bound this July. The rapper, writer and producer extraordinaire began making music with fellow collective members Earl Sweatshirt, Left Brain, and Hodgy Beats in 2007, and since then their loyal following has rapidly grown to become a world-wide fanbase. The rapper's T in the Park set will showcase material from his forthcoming album Wolf - the follow-up to 2011's acclaimed Goblin LP - which is released next month.
 
At only 18 years old, Earl Sweatshirt is Odd Future's prodigal son and a hugely talented lyricist and performer in his own right. Following a brief hiatus the rapper is back and at the top of his game. He wowed a packed crowd of critics and tastemakers alike at SXSW last week, and anticipation for the release of his forthcoming album Doris is reaching fever pitch.
 
Rita Ora made British chart history as the vocalist on one of the first ever drum and bass number one singles in the UK, DJ Fresh's Hot Right Now. She followed this breakout success by topping the charts with her own debut album, which spawned another two number-one singles How We Do (Party) and R.I.P. A style icon, she counts mentor Jay-Z and fellow T in the Park act Snoop Dogg amongst her many fans (with Snoop hand-picking her to feature on his latest single, Torn Apart). After a stand-out performance at T in the Park last summer, she brings her sassy party anthems back to Kinross for the festival's 20th year celebrations.
 
Over 85,000 festival-goers per day will descend on Kinross over 12th - 14th July for the 20th year of T in the Park, which will feature some of the world's greatest acts, including Main Stage headliners Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers, plus Chase and Status, Stereophonics, Calvin Harris, Kraftwerk, David Guetta, Emeli Sand', Snoop Dogg, Beady Eye, Dizzee Rascal, Foals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Azealia Banks, Kendrick Lamar, Disclosure, Rudimental, Haim, Chvrches, Modestep and many more.
