THE return of T in the Park next year is “not looking likely”, its organiser has said.

Geoff Ellis said no decision has been taken on the long-term future of the festival but that they are focusing on their other events such as TRNSMT.

The three-day non-camping festival, held in Glasgow last weekend, was created after it was announced T in the Park was to “take a break’’ this year as organisers looked to resolve issues around its move to a new site at the Strathallan Castle estate in Perth and Kinross.

Organisers DF Concerts & Events said more than 120,000 people attended TRNSMT. Tickets for a 2018 repeat go on sale today.

Ellis told BBC Radio Scotland’s Kaye Adams programme: “We’ve not formulated any decisions on the future of T in the Park – it’s still too early.

“We want to focus on TRNSMT, the Glasgow Summer Sessions and all the other concerts we’ve got. As soon as we are ready to make decisions and let people know about the future, we’ll tell people.

“The planning constraints are just so complex and costly at Strathallan that we’re just not in a position to say ‘yes, we’ll continue’.”
