2011 T in the Park Line-Up
In 1994 the very first T in the Park festival was inaugurated. It was such a massive success that it has been held annually ever since. The shows were previously hosted at Strathclyde Park, but the decision to make use of the abandoned airfield in Balado, Kinross-Shire was made in 1997, and it has now become the permanent home of the T in the Park festival. This exciting two day festival was also extended by a day in 2007, offering music enthusiasts three days of musical wonder and entertainment.
Some of the artists who have performed at this festival in the past have included Crash Test Dummies, Kylie Minogue, Radio Head, No Doubt, The Foo Fighters, Primal Scream, Manic Street Preachers, The Prodigy, Oasis, Alanis Morissette and many other celebrity acts. This year, the line-up of artists is just as impressive as in previous years. The T in the Park festival is scheduled for the 8th to the 10th of July 2011, and numerous award winning artists have already confirmed their presence. Even though Blink 182 has announced that they will no longer be able to participate, there are a number of acts to look forward to. The festival sets up a variety of different stages, with each stage offering a select number of performances, allowing festival goers to plan the acts they want to see. Some of the artists to look forward include the Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkey, Coldplay, Ke$ha, Bruno Mars, Beady Eye, Primal Scream, Mona, Fun Lovin Criminals, Peter Doherty, The Strokes, The Naked and Famous, Miles Cane and Mona, to name but a few.
Other activities, such as a fairground, fancy dress events, shops, stands and cinema are amongst the entertainment planned for the festival to keep festival goers occupied between shows. There are massive camping areas available, enabling visitors to stay for the weekend. The popularity of the event is evident in its ticket sales, which sold out within the first hour of opening ticket sales in February. The 2011 T in the Park festival is set to be yet another successful gathering of musicians, artists and fans, who will be celebrating music and enjoying a weekend of entertainment.
