T in the Park
The summer's major Scottish rock festival, organised by DF Concerts, is named after its chief sponsor, the brewing company Tennents.
T in the Park has been held annually since 1994. It was originally held at Strathclyde Park, but since 1997 has been held at the airfield in Balado, near Kinross. Since 2007, T in the Park has run over three days in July , instead of two.
There are seven stages of music, a large camping area (opens Thursday), with stalls, funfair, and Big Wheel.
Headliners at T in the Park 2012 are Snow Patrol, The Stone Roses, and Kasabian.

Some people are offering tickets on the T in the Park Facebook page.
Getting there from Edinburgh
There are shuttle buses from major bus and train stations to the T in the Park site gate. The festival discourages driving, but check traffic reports before you go (Edinburgh car).
