T in the Park 2015 - Highlights (BBC2, 11.30pm)

No one can doubt the BBC’s commitment to music this summer - in the wake of the Beeb’s extensive Glastonbury coverage, this evening alone BBC Two is bringing us coverage of the Proms and a selection of the most memorable moments from last weekend’s T in the Park.

Although it may not be as famous as the aforementioned Somerset festival, T in the Park has been going since 1994, and this year celebrated its 21st birthday by moving to a new home of Strathallan Castle in Perthshire. Acts including Kasabian, the Prodigy, David Guetta, Sam Smith and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds made the trip to Scotland, so there should be plenty to choose from.
