T In The Park does its bit for the environment

And NME.COM will be at the festival all weekend

This year’s T In The Park has become the largest carbon neutral festival in the world.

By planting three sustainable plots of forest in Scotland the festival’s ‘carbon footprint’, the amount of greenhouse gases it produces, will be neutralised.

The CEO of The Carbon Neutral Company Jonathan Shopley said: “The actions and leadership of an organization such as T in the Park in reducing CO2 emissions sets an excellent environmental example that will hopefully inspire tens of thousands of music fans attending the event to take positive action to deal with their own climate change impacts.”

T In The Park takes place in Balado, Scotland, this weekend (July 8-9), headlined by Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Who, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs. The festival also features NME favourites Editors, Dirty Pretty Things, The Kooks and We Are Scientists.

NME will be at T In The Park all weekend, so check NME.COM to read the news and reviews from the festival as soon as it happens.
