The View to play T in the Park 2012
The Dundonian group will take to the Main Stage on Saturday under the name The Dryburgh Soul Band
After the somewhat inevitable news that Pete Doherty would yet again forego a stint at T in the Park, ticket holders have been mollified with better news: The View will perform a main stage set Saturday 7 July, under the sly pseudonym The Dryburgh Soul Band.
In accordance with the title of their recently released album Cheeky for a Reason, the name change confirms that Kyle Falconer and co have a penchant for dabbling in mischief. On the other hand, more cynical readers might posture that this latest caper is just another hype-inducing stunt.
Whatever side of the fence you fall on, the crowd-pleasing, pint-tossing nature of The View’s tunes sit well with a T in the Park line-up that already includes The Stone Roses, Noel Gallagher and Happy Mondays.
