Early afternoon on day two of T16, and TV talent show vibes had come to the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent.

On the stage a music-mad songwriter was singing his heart out. Sitting off to the side on a flight case was a judge and mentor, casting a cool critical eye over the performance (while swigging casually from a tin of Tennent’s).

Stevie McCrorie, winner of the 2015 series of The Voice, had returned to T In The Park. Watching from the wings was his champion on the show, Kaiser Chiefs’ front man Ricky Wilson. The firefighter had a ball last year at his first visit to T in the wake of his TV triumph; he’d had a ball in 2010, too, when he’d played there as a young hopeful.

McCrorie turned in a typically impassioned performance to open the King Tut’s tent and, speaking afterwards, couldn’t contain his joy.

He said: "I really enjoyed it in the King Tut’s tent today. It can be hard going when you’re first on, and the capacity of that tent is massive, but it was a good amount of people there.

"And I’m proud of that. I’ve persevered, I’ve not given up, and I’m gonna keep going.”

It was a sentiment being echoed across the T site all day as festival-goers cheerfully defied the elements and enjoyed a host of top bands at the heights of their powers.

Catfish & The Bottlemen, riding high after the release of their chart-topping second album, and returning to Strathallan for a second year, were in roaring form on the Radio 1 Stage. Singer Van McCann is a natural born rock star, leading a band surely destined for headliner status.

As well as the likes of Bastille, Jess Glynne, Be Charlotte and The 1975, Killie lads Fatherson also knocked it out the park with their performance.

Returning for the fourth time, Fatherson frontman Ross Leighton said: "T in the Park does give you profile all over the place. Because people come here from all over Scotland, and the UK, for the rest of the year you can go other places because people have seen you at T. It’s a great jumping off platform.

"T has been hugely important to our band.”

Although he thought it was Sunday, Calvin Harris smashed it old-school style when closing Saturday with a little help from Dizzee Rascal and GBX's Bits & Pieces.

Another fine end to another great day.
