T in the Park is a major British music festival that has been held annually since 1994. It is named after its main sponsor, the brewing company Tennents. It was originally held at Strathclyde Park , Lanarkshire but since 1997 has been held at a disused airfield in Balado, Kinross-shire. One man was found dead in his tent , another man was stabbed 11 times by two men after he intervened to stop them harassing a female friend of his. Fortunately, this incident did not result in a fatality. The organisers have been heavily criticized for the security not stopping the man who smuggled the knife into the festival.

T in the Park 2016 was a three-day music festival organised by DF Concerts, which took place between 8–11 July 2016 and for the second time was held at Strathallan Castle, which is 20 miles away from the festival's previous location at the disused Balado airfield, Kinross-shire.

In implementing this plan we will be guided by data, not dates, so that we do not risk a surge in infections that would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS. For that reason, all the dates in the roadmap are indicative and subject to change. There will be a minimum of five weeks between each step: four weeks for the scientific data to reflect the changes in restrictions and to be analysed; followed by one week’s advance notice of the restrictions that will be eased.

"We have tried everything possible to deliver this show safely, including stringent covid management plans proposing various conditions of entry. But given there is still no proper guidance for this level of large scale event and still no clarity for the planning required around key areas such as security and transportation, we now have no other option bit to reschedule to a more secure date.

"Unfortunately the next update from the First Minister in August is too late for us, as we should be on site building the infrastructure at this point. Therefore the return of the Slam Tent will now move to 25-27 March 2022 and your tickets will be valied for this show automatically.”
