Tom Ogden (singer, guitarist): "Playing here last year was the first proper festival we did, the catering was dead good, we were playing in a tent, it was great.”
Joe Donovan (drums): "But at the same time it was bad. Because after the high of T, all the rest of the festivals we did that summer couldn't match up. We peaked too early!”
Tom: "This year has been even more crazy. But we're a better band this year. Plus, we're here till two in the morning, so we're gonna take in some Faithless then the Chilis. We can't get no sleep, literally.”
Joe: "We're lucky to be here actually. We broke down on the M25 just outside London, half two in the morning. We were looking at flights and the idea of one hour's sleep. But then a mechanic arrived after an hour and a half and fixed it, then we drove through the night and woke up here.”
Tom: "I woke up, got my phone out and did Find My Location. Then I knew I was at T In The Park! But we weren't bothered about the weather. The crowd don't seems phased by it, so why should you? And you feed of the crowd's energy, and they were really buzzing today. All our heroes have always said that Scotland is the stop on the tour they really look forward to.”
Joe: "Even now, talking to bands like The Courteeners, who we toured with, told us they always loved playing here.”
Tom: "And today Charlemagne, our big tune, got an incredible reaction. It's everything an up-and-coming band could want.”
Nathaniel Rateliff: "This is my first time here, I like it a lot. We've done Celtic Connections a few times, which is always a lot of fun, and I've done a Highlands tour. And we don't mind the weather –anywhere we go, we like to have solidarity with the people who are there. We're only here because of those people, so we always want to have a shared human experience.
"Plus, American roots music for sure is the culmination of all these different influences, some from Scotland, and from every country, coming together.
"We've always had a good time in Scotland – people love to listen. It's always been great here for us.”
Paul Smith (singer): "We think this is our sixth appearance at T In The Park. But the first time we came, we came as punters, and we saw PJ Harvey, the Pixies and The Strokes. And we remember thinking, 'maybe next year we'll be playing…' And we were.
"Then the last time we played here, it was the last time on the old site, so there was a lot of reminiscing going on. We hadn't had an album out for a couple of years, so it was nice to be back and think, OK, we're not just a flash in the pan, people still want to come and see us… And then we got to meet Edwyn Collins and Roddy Frame backstage, and I was just in awe.
"Our attitude whenever we play festivals is, we will triumph There's an urgency about our music which tends to get people on their feet and jumping about.”
Jake Bugg: "I wasn't here last year, but I played Balado twice. The first time there I spent most of time in the artists' area, beating The View and everyone else at table tennis.
"That year I remember coming up here thinking, who are all these people in this tenT waiting for? It can't be me, I've only had one tune out…' But there were there for me, and it was fantastic. I'll always remember that first T gig.
"This year I'm having to get used to playing bigger stages. People are just up for it, and they have a reputation for being quite a lively crowd, so you know you have to put in a performance, and nail it.
"But I feel when I'm on stage at T In The Park, they're always really supportive. I love playing here.”
