From its beginnings in 1994, T in the Park has become one of the best attended and most popular music festivals in the UK. T in the Park which began at Strathclyde Country Park, now attracts over 80,000 fans each day over a three day period. 180 artists perform on eleven stages over the weekend and have included such names as The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day and Radiohead. The festival continues to grow each year and is seen as a benchmark event throughout the music world.
Getting to T in the Park is quite easy, especially if you need to come by air. Three major airports including Glasgow Airport, Glasgow Prestwick and Edinburgh Airport all service central Scotland. In addition, all airports offer transportation links into Glasgow and Edinburgh where connections to the festival can be made. If you are coming from somewhere a little closer by, transportation by car is also possible. However, you must purchase a car park ticket for £17.50 online. If you don’t buy in advance, it will cost you more to purchase at the gate. Coaches are also available running from 32 locations across Scotland including Bathgate, Edinburgh, Perth, St. Andrews, Whitburn and many more. Connecting services are also available in cities such as London, Birmingham and Manchester. Booking such coach trips are possible through sites such as Ticketmaster.
For those looking for the ultimate festival experience, camping is the only way to go. Weekend camping is possible, but you must have a ticket to participate. All pitches are available on a first come, first serve basis so if you intend to camp near friends, you should all arrive together. All camping equipment including tents, bedrolls, toiletries and clothing needs to be brought into the camp by campers themselves.
