T in The Park Festival Webcam

 Europe, United Kingdom, Balado
 

Location Information:

 

T in the Park is a major music festival that has been held annually in Scotland since 1994. It is named after its main sponsor, the brewing company Tennents. It was originally held at Strathclyde Park, but since 1997 has been held at a disused airfield in Balado, in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. T in the Park was originally a two-day festival but since 2007 has taken place over three days, and introduced in 2008 was the chance to upgrade a weekend camping ticket to allow camping access on the Thursday - the day before any musicians performed. The festival is promoted by Big Day Out. It takes place on the same weekend as Oxegen in Ireland and shares a very similar line-up each year.

As well as the main seven stages of music, there are large camping areas to cater for the majority of festival-goers who stay for the duration of the event. There are also various concession stalls and shops provided, as well as other attractions, such as a large funfair, complete with Big Wheel.
The 2010 festival is to be headlined by Muse, Eminem and Kasabian.

Acts appearing in the opening year included Primal Scream, Oasis, Crash Test Dummies, Blur, The Manic Street Preachers, Rage Against the Machine and Cypress Hill. The following year the festival featured Kylie Minogue, The Prodigy, Alanis Morissette, Black Grape and Supergrass playing in blazing sunshine and high temperatures. In 1996, Radiohead, Beck, Pulp, The Foo Fighters, Teenage Fanclub (who played the Beatles 'Rain' just as it cleared), Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Delgados and No Doubt played, and in 1997 the event moved to its present site of Balado, Kinross-shire, when local developers wanted to use Strathclyde Park for other purposes.

Since moving, the festival has expanded in size with a mix of bands such as The Killers, Travis, Texas, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Garbage, Moby, Iggy Pop, Stereophonics, R.E.M., The Proclaimers, The Darkness, Idlewild, Muse, Razorlight, Max´mo Park, The Polyphonic Spree, The Specials, and The Chemical Brothers.
In recent years, the festival has shared much of its lineup with Oxegen, a festival that takes place on the same weekend in County Kildare, Ireland. Acts usually play T in the Park one day and Oxegen the next, or vice versa.
