There are seven main stages at T in the Park, ranging from the colossal main stage to the smaller tents that house new talent and local acts.

The distance between the stages means you often have to trek across the entire arena if you want to get from one stage to another. If a band on one stage finishes at the same time as another band is starting on a different stage then don't expect to see the whole of both sets. It can take a while crossing the site and picking your way through the crowds of people can take quite a while.

Main Stage:
The Main Stage is the largest of the stages and the one that generally gets the most attention. Most of the biggest acts to perform at TITP have played the main stage and it's the place where you are most likely to see the more mainstream acts. Ever since 2006 a second crowd barrier has been erected that separates the crowd at the very front from the crowd immediately behind them. Once this front section is full up it will be closed and nobody else will be allowed in until people come out. So if you want to get right to the front to see your favourite band make sure you get there early.

Radio One Stage
This stage is typically comprised of 'NME' friendly acts and is often filled with the latest indie trendsetters. As the festival has grown in size and reputation the acts to grace this stage have become bigger and 2006 saw Richard Ashcroft and Paul Weller both headline.

King Tut's Wah Wah Tent
Named after the legendary Glasgow venue the King Tut's Wah Wah Tent plays host to a collection of predominantly indie based groups. Oasis, Blur, The Manic Street Preachers, Pulp and Coldplay have all played the tent before they were famous.

Slam Tent
Capacity: 12,000
T in the Park's huge dance tent combines DJ's and live performances and feels like a makeshift nightclub - except it only runs during the day. With a 12,000 capacity it is still the single biggest dance music event that Scotland has ever witnessed, and it continues to host the finest cutting edge dance acts.

Transmissions/BBC Introducing stage
Capacity: TBA
One of the smaller stages at TITP, but one of the best nevertheless. Acts performing are usually ones to look out for in years to come.

T Break Stage
Capacity: 1500
The T Break stage is an opportunity for new Scottish acts to get a chance to perform at T in the Park. The stage is totally devoted to home grown talent. The first ever TITP saw a performance from a band called Glass Onion on the T Break Stage (then known as The Caledonia Stage), shortly after the band changed their name to Travis.

The Tennent's Arms
Capacity: TBA
T in the Park’s newest venue. Taking inspiration from an old school tattoo parlour and with an outdoor terrace overlooking the stunning Strathallan Estate – The Tennent’s Arms hosts Top Sub Club DJs.
