T in the Park 2017 cancelled

titp-logoScottish festival T in the Park has announced that it will be taking a fallow year in 2017, marking the first year that the event has failed to take place since it’s inception in 1994. A statement from the festival organisers cited problems “logistically and financially” with moving sites and with the new site affecting a nesting pair of rare Ospreys. This seems the latest installment of bad publicity for the event, as recent years have included high crime rates and antisocial behaviour, several deaths, major traffic delays and poor organisation. Hopefully with an extra year with which to plan, some of these issues will be resolved before the 2018 festival.
