35,000 sold for next year in just 70 minutes

T In The Park sold 35,000 tickets for the 2007 festival in just 70 minutes this morning (July 11).

The ‘early bird’ tickets were snapped up just two days after the close of this year’s event, which featured headline slots from Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Who.

Fans took up the chance to go even though there has been no announcement on who will perform next year as yet.

The festival will return to Balado, near Kinross, on July 7/8 2007.
