Q & A with Kyle

85,000 people will be descending on Balado near Kinross, Scotland this weekend to watch sets by Blur, Killers, Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon, Nick Cave, Keane and many more.

Started in 1994 in Strathclyde Parkbefore subsequently moving to it's current larger home in Kinross, T in The Park has played host to many memorable sets including then whipper-snappers Coldplay in 1999 who caused a massive queue outside their tent whilst singing soon to be hit single, Yellow.

We caught up with some of this year's acts ahead of 2009's musical extravaganza to ask them about their plans for the fest, memories if they've played it before and of course, the pressing question - what will they wear on this year's newly introduced Fancy Dress Friday! (ok, well it is important to some people).

Kyle from The View

Who are you looking forward to seeing at T in the Park 2009?
The Horrors

Have you got a T in the Park highlight?
I went to see Oasis in 2002, they had Heathen Chemistry out, it was brilliant.

Personal highlight - the full gig when we played, we came in on a helicopter it was cool as fuck. The audience are the best, they genuinely are the best there's a good singalong. Nobody's fighting because everyone is happy.

The T in The Park goers do their bit for the environment too - what is your green tip for people attending T in the Park?
Put all your cans in the recycling

How important do you think it is that established events like T in the Park give unsigned acts the opportunity to play via competitions such as T Break?
It's important because every band needs a break, and that slot at T in the Park might be the right place at the right time!

We've got Fancy Dress Friday at T in the Park this year - what'll your fancy dress outfit be?
A pirate.

Name your essential festival item - the one luxury item you want/need on your rider for T in the Park?
A phone.
