The Coronas, Dot Rotten, Meek Mill, Dry the River and Teengirl Fantasy have joined the bill for next month’s music festival.

They will be joining headliners The Stone Roses, Kasabian and Snow Patrol as some 85,000 music-lovers per day decamp to Balado from July 6 to 8.

Platinum-selling Dublin based four-piece The Coronas will perform at the festival on Sunday July 8.

Currently the biggest-selling independent group in Ireland, the band are renowned for their high-energy live shows. New single Addicted to Progress , from forthcoming album Closer to You, remained in the top five Irish Airplay charts for over 13 weeks.

 Danny O’Reilly of the group said: “We're so excited about getting to play T in the Park this year.

“The reception we get in Scotland has always been amazing and to play at such a historic festival is going to be a highlight of our summer. We promise to give every ounce of energy we have!"

Londonrapper Dot Rotten was nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll and his forthcoming third single Overload (sampling the 1996 hit Children by Robert Miles) was selected as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World.

Meanwhile American rapper Meek Mill was included in MTV’s ‘Hottest MCs in the Game’ list and has racked up collaborations with T.I., Lil’ Wayne and Drake. He recently released the second instalment of his Dreamchasers series and signed a management deal with Roc Nation.

London-based band Dry the River sold out Camden’s Electric Ballroom three months in advance and landed a coveted slot on the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll. Teengirl Fantasy released critically acclaimed album 7AM  in 2010, which was praised for its creative use of samples and experimentation.
