T in the Park has had its capacity increased for 2009 by an extra 5000.

This means the festival will welcome 85,000 over the weekend of July 10-12.

The new tickets are on the condition of being camping, and holders can gain access to the site from Thursday thereby lessening the traffic impact.

Friday’s arena will have a new capacity of 70,000 with 65,000 being campers, and an extra 5000 given to local residence who previously couldn’t attend unless they were camping.

No line up is known as yet, with the first announcement expected in February when the remaining tickets not already sold after 2008’s event also back on sale.
