James Bay loves playing to Scottish crowds at T in the Park


James Bay has said he loved playing to the T in the Park crowd this past weekend, revealing how the big crowd really spurred on his performance.
James, who played the Main stage yesterday to a crowd of thousands, reflected on the time when he played in a tiny tent with around 500 revelers at the old Balado site, and how memories of TITP last year got him thorough a tricky situation at V festival.
“T in the Park last year totally lived up to my expectations, and it was definitely a highlight.”

“Only a short number of festivals later, we did V, and it was the last thing we did before going on a holiday for a week. MY guitar started dying in the last song, so in that very moment I was just dreaming of TITP and how great it was.”
“This is my third year in a row, because the year before that I was on a tiny little tent, in the last site. As I was starting up the second song, about 500 people ran into the tent, from I don’t know where. So we’ve always had great times at T.
“It’s great to be back this year too because I’m a competitive person, so to conquer a bigger crowd, and to know that when I come back to that place, it’ll be bigger again, is a wonderful feeling which spurs me on.
“And when the weather’s like this, it’s an exciting challenge. In Scotland I have more confidence in playing to people in this kind of weather than anywhere else in the world. I think we’re just great at it. We were born in this weather; we’ll take it on. And today, we’ll give it everything like we always do.”
