T In The Park Organizers Confirm Festival Will Take A Break In 2017

STRATHALLAN, Scotland (CelebrityAccess) — Scotland`s largest music festival, T in the Park, is to take a break next year, its organisers have confirmed.

DF Concerts said it needed to “take stock” and that the two years since the festival moved to Strathallan from Balado “have had their challenges.”

The promoter said “continued restrictions” had had a “negative impact” on festivalgoers.

It added that the limitations placed on their fans` experience were “too great”.

The organisers said: “We now need to take stock and take a year out to try to resolve the issues so that we can once again deliver the kind of camping festival you are used to and deserve.”

Scotland`s largest music festival has been held every year since 1994, when Rage Against the Machine and Primal Scream were the headline acts.

The first three years took place at Strathclyde Park, near Hamilton in Lanarkshire, before it moved to Balado in Perth and Kinross.

Over 17 years it grew to a three-day festival attracting 225,000 people, including 70,000 campers.

In 2015 the festival moved to Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.

The festival`s first year at Strathallan in 2015 was plagued by traffic problems, leading to organisers implementing a transport plan for this summer`s event.

Two teenagers died at this year`s festival in separate incidents, while witnesses reported fights and illicit drug use in the campsite area.
