I went there (I mean in Scotland, not T) last august and I was freezing my ass off, I swear I don't how you manage to go around in short sleeve with that temperature, I was dreaming the 30 °C they were having back home in Italy :blank:

Other than that I loved it, especially Edinburgh :nice:

Coldplay's Guy Berryman will have his work cut out at this year's T in the Park - he's hoping to perform twice. The 33-year-old festival local boy from Kirkcaldy will be headlining with Chris Martin and the boys on the Saturday.

But beforehand the band's bass player is hoping to get on stage with American sisters The Pierces, whose career he resurrected when he produced their breakout album You & I. The girls, still on a high after it reached number four in the charts, are the latest act to be named for next month's T, when they play on the Saturday.

Allison who sings and plays guitar alongside sister Catherine, said: "We've talked about him coming on stage and playing a song or two. He's told us about T in the Park and said he loved going home and playing one of his favourite festivals."

The Pierces had split up after slogging away for nine years when Guy approached them in 2009 to produce new material. It would become You & I, their fourth album that went to number four in May. Allison said: "Honestly, he saved us. Our success now is all because of him. We had given up. We didn't see any hope and couldn't see where the next step would be, so we split up. If he hadn't come along, Catherine and I would be doing solo projects. We're hoping to do our next album with him as well. We've started talking about it, it's just a matter of when."

Guy and his production partner Rik Simpson took the sisters, originally from Birmingham, Ala-bama, into the Electric Lady Studios in New York. here and in Coldplay's studio, The Bakery in north London, they worked on You & I's summery folk-rock tunes. They will be the perfect pastoral pleasure for T in the Park, which begins on July 8 and features Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters and Coldplay as headliners. The gorgeous sisters will join Beyonce, The Saturdays and KT Tunstall to add extra glamour to the weekend's line-up.

And Allison, who has been living in London with Catherine while promoting and touring their album, swore: "We promise to bring some Alabama sunshine."

She also promised they wouldn't let their standards slip at Balado. Allison said: "If it's raining on stage I will not be wearing wellies."

She added: "We have heard some great things about T. It is one of everyone's favourites. "We've played in Glasgow and Edinburgh already and know the Scottish audiall as sexy ences are the best so we can't wait to see what a Scottish festival is like. In general, festivals are much more raw and you never know what you're going to get. There are more chances of things getting wrong but that makes it more exciting."

Unlike most squabbling siblings in bands, such as Oasis and The Kinks, The Pierces aren't at each other's throats. Allison said: "We fight but we don't get physical or hit each other. We really love each other and have learnt to fight maturely."

She's laughing now. The sisters, both in their early 30s, have been singing together since they were kids "as soon as we could talk", and playing professionally for 12 years. They will be in London until the end of the summer and will be waiting for Guy to work out times he can leave his day job as Coldplay's bassist to produce them. It's something they thoroughly enjoyed last time. Allison said: "He's not a really hard task master but very focused and lives for music. Something people don't know about him is that he plays pretty much instrument.

"He played most of the electric guitar on the album, he played pretty much all percussion, he started out as a drummer, and a little bit of keys. "He's incredibly talent and very inspiring."

They will be hoping Guy can steer them to American success. Like the Kings of Leon and The Killers, they've had to find success first in the UK. She said: "You & I feels like a new beginning. Every record we did we kept saying this is our last chance, but we keep getting more chances. The success in the UK doesn't surprise us because we've been through so much. But we are so happy things are going well now."

I'm staying with some friends who live in Edinburgh when I go to T in the Park. Does anybody know how to get from Edinburgh to Balado Airfield by public transportation? I haven't quite figured that part out yet. I need some help!

There are several bus companies who run shuttle buses from Balado to Edinburgh or Glasgow. Check citylink - £22.00 return fare but book in advance.

We'll no doubt get some good quality videos of the performance as the BBC usually show highlights and some (not sure all though) live performances around the weekend on BBC 2 and BBC 3...unless the BBC have ditched it from their schedules that is.

T In the Park Set (09 July 2011) to be broadcast LIVE IN FULL on BBC (and in HD)

Woo, and indeed, hoo!!!!

I honestly thought that following so hard on the heels of Glastonbury, the BBC wouldn't be able to justify showing Coldplay live again, but it looks very much like they *are* going to do just that!

Thought as much. BBC 3 is it?

Muse did Glasto and T last year and the BBC showed both performances live so it's the least we should expect!

Oh Nooo....I'd be so bummed if that happened. I have it locked on 2 dvrs in our house. Keep checking Palladia, though, they tend to repeat things fairly frequently. I remember they showed World Stage from Tokyo many many times.

great news, hopefully they have better sound quality now cause the Glasto sound was a better on BBC2 than on BBC HD
