Earth, Wind and Fire added to the T in the Park 2013 line up


Kinross will become a Boogie Wonderland this July when the legendary Earth, Wind and Fire take to the T in the Park stage. Festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are pleased to announce that the group – one of the most influential and innovative of the 20th century – will be bringing a dose of soul and funk to T in the Park’s 20th year festivities over 12th – 14th July.

During the latter half of the Seventies, Earth, Wind and Fire released a series of albums that changed the face of pop music with their genre-defying fusion of modern jazz, soul, gospel, funk, disco, rock and African music. Their remarkable career, which spans over four decades, has seen them sell over 90 million records worldwide, win 6 Grammy Awards and garner an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Founded by Memphis-born Maurice White, their breakthrough came with the no. 1 album That’s the Way of the World (1975) and they went on to dominate the charts that decade with an unbroken run of multiplatinum-selling albums including Gratitude, Spirit, All ‘n’ All, The Best of Earth, Wind and Fire, Vol. 1 and I Am. Although Maurice White retired from the road in 1996, he remains the band’s heart and soul from behind the scenes as composer and producer. Famed for their grandiose live performances, and much loved by critics and fans alike for classics such as Let’s Groove, Boogie Wonderland, September, Fantasy and Shining Star, their irresistible, feel good anthems are sure to be a massive hit at T in the Park’s 20th year celebrations.

Earth, Wind and Fire join T in the Park’s hugely diverse 20th year bill, which features headliners Mumford and Sons, Rihanna and The Killers, plus Chase and Status, Calvin Harris, Snoop Dogg, Kraftwerk, Emeli Sandé, Dizzee Rascal, alt-J, Frank Ocean, Foals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Paloma Faith, Rita Ora, Jake Bugg, Of Monsters and Men, Hurts, Ke$ha, Johnny Marr and many more on the 20th year bill.
