History T in the Park is a major music festival that has been held annually in Scotland since 1994. Acts appearing in the opening year included Scottish rock band Gun, Oasis, The Manic Street Preachers and Rage Against the Machine and have appeared in many festivals, including 2008. It is named after its main sponsor, the brewing company Tennents.

T in the Park was originally a two-day festival but since 2007 has taken place over three days, and introduced in 2008 was the chance to upgrade a weekend camping ticket to allow camping access on the Thursday - the day before any musicians performed.
