T in The Park says farewell to Balado as it comes closer to Perthshire next year to  Strathallan Castle.

Arctic Monkeys finished off with a stonking set, previous night left the 85,000 crowd shocked as Calvin Harris and Hollywood star Will Smith say hello to Balado.

Festival organisers DF Concerts confirmed that the festival would be held in the grounds of the early 19th century Perthshire castle, near Auchterarder, from next summer.

Chief executive officer Geoff Ellis said that while he was sad to leave Kinross he was “absolutely thrilled” with the festival’s new home.

He said: “We’ve had 18 tremendous years at Balado, but now we’re moving on to pastures new – this time with a castle overlooking the site.

“We already loved Strathallan Castle and had been hoping to host an event there for many years.

“When it became clear we’d need to leave Balado to safeguard the future of the festival, we became very excited about the prospect of Strathallan becoming the new home for T in the Park. We thought it would be perfect, and it is.”
