More T, anyone?

As if the increasing number of festivals isn't enough to cope with, the ones which have been on the calendar for decades are starting to expand as well: T in the Park is going to sort of become a three-day event.

Rather than have a full Friday programme, though, the plan seems to be to offer some entertainment of some sort on the evening before the traditional Saturday start, but aimed only at people who have turned up to pitch tents and hunker down for the full weekend. Whatever form it takes, there won't be an option to attend just the Friday nights with one-day tickets. So, it's not going to be the jewels of the festival, we can conclude - probably someone from Balls Of Steel doing some stand-up and the winners of some sort of unsigned bands competition, partially obscured by roadies trying to make the amp stack work properly.
