Kraftwerk are Headlining T In The Park 2013

The electronic legends will join Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and The Killers.

Krautrock outfit and all-around visionaries Kraftwerk are to headline T In The Park 2013.

Festival director Geoff Ellis said of the announcement: "Kraftwerk are a truly seminal band. Their revolutionary sound altered the face of contemporary music, and paved the way for so many artists across so many musical genres.

"They are a massively influential group and an incredible live act, and we are hugely excited to welcome Kraftwerk to T In The Park for the first time this July, in what will be a very special moment in our 20th year celebrations."

Kraftwerk will join Mumford & Sons, Rihanna, The Killers, Alt-J, Paloma Faith, The Script, Emeli Sande, Two Door Cinema Club, Of Monsters and Men, Jake Bugg and Azealia Banks at the festival, which takes place between July 12th-14th. To buy tickets, visit the T In The Park Official Website.
