Death of a 36 year old individual under investigation
Police have confirmed a death at this year’s T In The Park festival.
As The Guardian reports, police in Scotland have revealed that the body of a 36 year old man was found at the festival’s campsite on Saturday afternoon (July 11), with the cause of his death currently unexplained.
A spokesman for the festival said: “We are extremely saddened by this news, and our thoughts are with the family at this time.”
Police are appealing for information regarding the incident. 25 arrests have been made at the festival, unrelated to the man’s death.
Superintendent Colin Brown said: “The vast majority of people have enjoyed themselves and taken our advice and behaved responsibly.”
“However, a small number have ignored that advice and have been dealt with. Our advice is simple – look after yourselves and your friends, behave and have a good time.”
The Libertines made their long-awaited return to T In The Park on Saturday , where they co-headlined the main stage alongside Swedish EDM titan Avicii.
Playing the festival for the first time since 2004, The Libertines’ set was one of the busiest of the weekend, also seeing the band debut new track ‘Fame and Fortune’ from forthcoming new album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’.
It was the band’s older material – such as ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’ and ‘Music When The Lights Go Out’ – that drew the biggest response from the crowd.
After ‘Boys in the Band’, the group disappeared from the stage for a few minutes, with Doherty saying they needed to “have a little pep-talk.” They returned soon afterwards, however, and went wordlessly into ‘The Good Old Days’. No explanation was given, but there was no suggestion of trouble: by the end of of the set – which climaxed with ‘Time For Heroes’ – a grinning Doherty was attempting to affectionately wrestle co-frontman Carl Barat to the ground.
