Heralded as ‘Scotland’s Glastonbury’ for many years by a loving and loyal fanbase, T In The Park is likely to stake its claim as the genuine Glasto alternative for the first time this year, what with the Pilton party being rested for 2006.

But to justify that claim purely on Glasto’s absence is to do the festival a massive discredit. Perhaps the UK festival that best balances its dedication to securing massive bands alongside ensuring an unbelievable atmosphere, T In The Park thrives on the thirst of the predominantly Scottish crowd.

The world’s biggest bands come together across four packed arenas to help provide a weekend to remember from start to finish, while new Scottish talent is given a chance to shine at the T-Break stage.
