This summer we’ll once again be helping you find the easiest ways to Do It In Public on the festival circuit, ditching the car and taking public transport instead for the ultimate festival experience. Here comes T in the Park, which takes place in Scotland from July 8-10…
Global Cool has spent a lot of time at T in the Park in recent years catching up with all our celebrity friends and finding out just how they like to Do It In Public. We adore the variety of the festival whether you want to chill on the grass with your mates or grab some nice food from Healthy T, which offers free water, massage stations and yummy local food. There is also the legendary Ceilidh tent and a funfair for all you thrill seekers out there.
Thursday night is cinema night at the campsite where three classic movies chosen by festival goers. Don’t forget Fancy Dress Friday, a legendary event at T in the Park, with an 80s retro theme this year. Don those leg warmers, dig out those Top Gun aviators, grab a brush and get backcombing!
The easiest way to get to T in the Park is by train to Glasgow, Edinburgh or Perth and then take the Park Citylink shuttle bus straight to the festival. For times and bookings please visit the Citylink website. To save you the hassle check out Tennent’s Be Chilled service where you can pre-order your lager for collection on the campsite. Register here and you’ll receive an email reminder from Tennent’s when Be Chilled 2011 opens for orders.
