T In The Park 2008 Is A Sell Out

T In The Park 2008 Is A Sell Out

The 'early bird' tickets for next year's T in the Park festival have sold out already, only two days after this year's event packed up.

The 40,000 tickets for what will be the event's 15th birthday sold out in a record 69 minutes when they went on sale yesterday morning.

Last year, 35,000 'early bird' tickets were snapped up in 70 minutes.

When the 2008 event is launched officially early next year, a further 40,000 tickets will be made available along with the full line-up.

This year's event, the first year it has expanded into a three day festival drew Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Snow Patrol and Arcade Fire to play for Scottish music fans.

Former Beach Boys singer Brian Wilson was one the T highlights, headlining, aptly, the Pet Sounds Arena. The crowd despite their youth, knew all the lyrics and sang along to the greatest hits set of 25 songs that Wilson and his band played.
