T In The Park security increased


If you’re heading to T In The Park this weekend, you can’t have failed to notice that after recent events, Britain’s terror threat level is currently at critical. But don’t worry, organisers have made allowances.

A quote from organisers on the official website says: “We have taken into account recent events and have reviewed all of our practices and realigned these where appropriate to ensure that safety is paramount, as always.”

So what does this ‘realigning’ mean, in layman’s terms? Well… be prepared for a bit of a wait. The quote continues:

“These increased security measures could result in some delays when arriving at the event, particularly at the car parks and entrances and we would ask all the fans to be patient and bear with us.”

To aid security, keep your details with you. You’ll need your ticket on you at all times and your wristband if you’re camping. As organisers say: “Security checks will be in place all weekend.” You know it makes sense!

Anyone who has medicine e.g. for diabetes, needs to declare it and have a prescription matching their ID. Oh, and don’t bring booze in glass bottles or attempt to start a campfire. It’s all common sense really!

A lot of T-goers will be getting to the festival via Glasgow and Edinburgh airports, and shuttle buses will be provided. After recent events at Glasgow airport, it is worth remembering that some restrictions are still in place there. A quick scan of the website says car parks are reopen and flights are operating normally with only a few delays, but the forecourt remains closed and there is no vehicular access to the front of the terminal.

The key to a smooth weekend, in a nutshell, is be patient, wear a smile and travel light. Less luggage means less to check and also less to carry… unless you have a very understanding boyfriend.
