Violinist Nicola Benedetti is set to warm up the crowds for Kasabian, Elbow and Swedish House Mafia when she takes to the stage of T in the Park.
The Ayrshire-born musician will be the opening act on Sunday, July 8, the last day of the festival at Balado near Kinross.
Her appearance was agreed following a meeting between Benedetti and T in the Park founder Geoff Ellis at Buckingham Palace.
Ellis said: "She is a true Scottish talent with huge crossover appeal and I’m delighted to have her open on the Sunday.”
More than 85,000 people are expected to head to Perthshire for what has become Scotland's biggest outdoor music event.
The Stone Roses, New Order, Snow Patrol and Florence and the Machine are among the other headline acts at this year's festival.
Benedetti has recorded five classical albums and performed around the world as a soloist since winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year trophy in 2004, at the age of 16.
In 2007 she became the youngest person to receive an honorary doctor of letters from Glasgow Caledonian University.
In August she will join the London Symphony Orchestra in the more familiar surroundings of Edinburgh's Usher Hall to perform the complete symphonies of Brahms and Szymanowski.
