Citizen T

Citizen T is back and this year with the support of Mr T. Following on from the last three year's success the Citizen T manifesto encourages positive community behaviour at T in the Park. It simply involves festival goers looking after each other and their fellow campers, binning their litter, taking the tent home, enjoying the festival whilst remembering to stay safe.


T in the Park's changes to 2016’s festival, include the campsite. Improvements include a significant increase in size, colour-coded zones, more live entertainment and food outlets, better signage and 24hr dedicated management teams.

The campsite opens on Thursday 7th July which means you can take advantage of an extra day of festival fun with a Thursday camping ticket, which includes entertainment including Band-A-Oke, The Stand Comedy Club, Club Noir, Slam DJs and Hot Dub Time Machine, and the fairground.

Don’t bring any banned items to the festival – glass, flag poles, selfie sticks, nitrous oxide aka ‘laughing gas’, laser pens, air horns, multi-tools or flares. As always, fires, barbeques and cooking stoves are not allowed but disposable barbeques can be used within the fire lanes. These items put others at risk and are best kept at home. Also both illegal drugs and legal highs are against the law – it’s just not worth the risk.


Each campervan ticket allows access to a pitch area of 7m x 7m. If more space is required another ticket for a second pitch must be purchased, campervan tickets must be bought in advance. The number of passengers must not exceed the campervan sleeping capacity.

There are expected to once again be coaches running to the festival from direct routes from locations across Scotland.
