Capacity increase means you can still see Arctics, Killers and Snow Patrol

More tickets for this year’s T In The Park festival are to be released on Friday March 9, due to a successful council application to increase capacity for the site.

The expanded three day event taking place near Kinross from July 6-8 will see it’s capacity license increased by 5,000 a day to 80,000 at the festival for the next three years.

Tickets for the event where Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Snow Patrol will headline, originally went on sale last Saturday (February 24) but sold out in a record-breaking 40 minutes.

The second batch of tickets to be made available will also include cancelled tickets reclaimed from multiple purchases. This step has been taken by the event to prevent tickets being purchased by touts being sold onto T in the Park festival goers at over inflated prices.

Spokeman for the festival organisers, Geoff Ellis said today: “As promised, we are really happy to announce that fans will have a second chance to get their hands on T in the Park tickets when they go on sale a week on Friday.”

Ticket sales will once again be limited to 2 per person/per day/per credit card and only available through the official websites.
