T in the Park is officially the ‘Festival of the Year’, beating off competition at last night’s prestigious Music Week Awards in London from Glastonbury, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Rockness and Creamfields.

As well as being the fans’ favourite festival, T in the Park is officially the Music Industry’s favourite UK festival, as voted for by music industry experts worldwide via Musicweek.com. Proud T in the Park founding partners – Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts and George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager took to the stage to collect their award at the Roundhouse in London last night.

George Kyle: “From 15,000 people at Strathclyde Park back in 1994 to 85,000 of the world’s most passionate and loyal music fans in 2011 – it is so humbling to receive this amazing award for T in the Park – a truly incredible and unique festival that has grown to become not only the best in the UK but also a market leading festival worldwide.”

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
