Flashback: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs at T in the Park

Bagpipes, Festival, Piper, T in the Park, Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Seeing as the festival was just this past weekend I thought I’ share with you one of my favourite memories of T in the Parks from the past. 6 years ago in 2009 the mighty New York rockers The Yeah Yeah Yeahs played the main stage of T in the Park and brought with them the East Kilbride Pipe Band to help in there rendition of ‘Skeletons.’

That’s right, pretty much at their peak Karen O and friends played one of their best songs with a pipe accompaniment! It was a pretty cool moment from one of the coolest live acts I’ve ever seen and the crowd went mad for it!

I did a wee google search and was able to find the performance in question which you can watch below. It’s pretty crazy to me that it was 6 years ago, the landscape of popular music has changed pretty dramatically in that time. I had a look at the line up for this years T in the Park and barely saw anyone I’d be interested in seeing, although based on reports of the state of the new site i’d say I dodged a bullet not going this year.

What are your favourite T in the Park moments? Any of them involving bagpipes? Share in the comments below!
