The Killers will headline T in the Park next year.

The 'Mr. Brightside' hitmakers have been unveiled as the third headliner at the Scottish festival following yesterday's (04.12.12) announcement that Rihanna and Mumford & Sons will also perform at the event in Balado, Kinross.

Festival goers are likely to be thrilled by the news as The Killers topped a poll to find a dream headline act for the event, which takes place over the weekend of 12-14 July.

Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: ''The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T in the Park's 20th edition. They're one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over. With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we're really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for 20 for our 20th year celebrations.''

A limited number of T in the Park 2013 tickets will be available at 2012 prices at 9am on Friday (07.12.12).
