Such is the excitement and fervour around T in the Park that if they came out and merely announced the festival date and when the tickets were on
sale, people would be clamouring for tickets immediately. Unsurprisingly, given the announcement of a third night, exclusively for weekend camping holders, tickets are expected to sell briskly on Saturday morning.

With the threat of touts always present at festivals, the procedures brought in for last years event will be in place again, with tickets being limited to two per person. The promoters are also in talks to further increase the capacity of the festival and pending on a licence, this could see further tickets being released at a later date.

Although praising Glastonbury for their attempts to prevent the touts, T in the Parks promoters have been actively lobbying the Government to amend legislation regarding the touting of tickets and are likely to rope in the fans throughout the year to lend their support. So if you are actively opposed to people making profit from festival and gig tickets, stay tuned to see how you can get involved.

Also following on from last year when the festival became carbon neutral, this year may well be billed as 'Green T', given the further plans the festival is committing to recycling, not only in their own activities but by actively encouraging partners and suppliers to match their carbon neutral activities.

In addition to the initial list of bands which featured on RoomThirteen earlier, the following acts have been confirmed for T:

DJ Shadow vs Cut Chemist, LCD Soundsystem, Editors, Saw Doctors, Hardfloor, and Digitalism.

Although there has been no official confirmation, the following acts are mentioned on the media section of the official website, so may well be added soon:

Albert Hammond JR, Bright Eyes, Cold War Kids and Raconteurs.

Upcoming announcements are expected soon with the Slam Tent tipped to announce their line-up over the weekend (although traditionally they hold off until a bit later), The Futures tent will be announced in a few months and the T-Break competition, T in The Parks showcase for unsigned talent, is currently underway.

And with all that news and excitement, its probably best to get an early
night on Friday in preparation for the ticket rush on Saturday morning.
