Among the many videos that went viral from last weekend’s T in the Park, the most satisfying had to be from the Slam Tent. The 40 second clip shared by Slam as the doors opened proved just why it’s one of the most revered events in the festival calendar, as hundreds of eager ravers filled it to the brim in record time, initiating an impressive ‘bouncy’ in the process. DJs love it, the punters love it, and although some of the biggest names in live music might be playing nearby, some people don’t leave the Slam Tent all weekend.
Recorded live at this year’s festival, Radio 1 were on hand to capture highlights for a special Essential Mix, featuring standout sets from Maceo Plex, Eats Everything, Adam Beyer b2b with Joesph Capriati, and of course the weekend’s hosts, Slam. “Just had an absolutely lovely time” said Eats when he emerged from the infamous tent… “they’re the best crowd in the world to play to.” If you were there, then it’s time to relive the magic.
