Everyone At This Year's T In The Park Was Pissed Off With The New Site

"T in the Park? Disaster in the dark more like."

This year's T in the Park festival has been hit with complaints after day attendees faced long delays getting home at the end of the night.

Just left T in the Park after 4 hours from West Pickup Point, fucking disgraceful

This year's festival was held at Strathallan Castle for the first time, after more than 10 years at Balado airfield near Kinross.

The festival went ahead despite concerns that local roads might not be equipped to handle festival traffic.

In August 2014, local traffic consultant Andrew Carrie said: “It is difficult to see how lorries of that size could manoeuvre around the adjacent road network without substantial road widening or corner improvements," reported The Courier.

Many of the complaints came from parents who faced long waits to pick up their children.

A few people also claimed that they fell down an open manhole while trying to find their car or lift.

Other people reported crushes and bottlenecks within the site, which is smaller than Balado.

The feedback for organisers DF Concerts and Events has been pretty straightforward so far.
