T in the Park sells out in one hour
17 February 2006
A limited number of tickets for this year's T in the Park went on sale back in July, just one day after 2005's event and sold out in four hours. This astounding record-smashing time is testament to the festival's consistent popularity and stature amongst global music fans, who voted T the Best Major Festival in last year's UK Festival Awards.
Geoff Ellis, CEO of festival organisers Big Day Out Ltd commented:
"Once again music fans have shown that T in the Park tickets are the most hotly sought after in the UK! The beautiful Balado location coupled with the unrivalled passion of the Scottish audience and of course the consistently brilliant line-up all add up to a festival experience that is unrivalled anywhere else in Europe. Whether you are a T in the Park regular or this is your first visit to the festival, we look forward to delivering another fantastic event for you in July!
If you didn't manage to get tickets this year, then once again we do advise you not to turn to ticket touts as not only will you pay well over the odds, but you may be paying for tickets that do not exist and you will not gain access to the festival with a forgery."
T in the Park 2006 takes place at Balado in Perthshire, Scotland, on 8-9 July with a cracking line-up that already includes Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Who, The Strokes (announced today), Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs, Primal Scream, Sigur Ros, and The Ordinary Boys.
