James Murphy and company will headline the BBC Radio 1 stage on Sunday night at the event this July, six years on from their last Scottish gig at the Barrowlands in April 2010. They'll join returning mainstage headliners The Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Calvin Harris at T as the event descends on Strathallan Estate in Perthshire for a second year.

T in the Park is the latest festival added to the resurgent New York dance-rock legends' schedule this summer – the band are also set to headline Coachella festival in California, Lowlands in the Netherlands and Primavera Sound in Barcelona. 

Other notable players on this year's bill include John Grant, Jamie xx, Mexican acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela and the returning Frightened Rabbit (who will be playing on the heels of their forthcoming fifth LP,  Painting Of A Panic Attack); read the current T in the Park line-up in full below.
