Arctic Monkeys - Arctic Monkeys to headline T in the Park 2014

Arctic Monkeys are headlining T in the Park 2014 festival.

The 'R U Mine?' hitmakers have been confirmed as the first bill-topping act playing at the Scottish festival in Balado, Perth and Kinross, next July.

The band said in a statement: ''We are delighted to be playing T in the Park and look forward to a great night with our Scottish fans.''

The band first played the festival in 2006 before headlining the event in 2011, and are back by popular demand, thanks largely to the success of their fifth studio album 'AM'.

Geoff Ellis, the festival's director, added: ''We're thrilled to announce Arctic Monkeys as our first headliners for T in the Park 2014.

''After this year's fantastic 20th year celebrations, we asked our audience who they'd like to see at next year's festival and Arctic Monkeys came top of the poll, so we're really pleased to be able to confirm them for T in the Park.

''We have many more fantastic acts in store which we'll announce next year, and can't wait to see you all again in July.''

A limited number of tickets for the event, which takes place from July 11-13, 2014, go on sale this Friday (22.11.13) at 9am.
