THE founders of T in the Park have issued an update after claims the music festival is set to return in 2026 began to spread on social media.

An X/Twitter account with the handle @TITPofficial appeared on the social media site on Sunday evening and quickly began teasing the return of the event.

The page’s first post read: “Guess who’s back 👀 #Tinthepark2026”.

It quickly garnered attention, receiving nearly 2000 likes and being viewed upwards of 900,000 times.

The National contacted DF Concerts, the firm who started T in the Park as a joint venture with Tennant’s Lager back in 1994, to confirm the legitimacy of the X/Twitter account.

However, they stated that it was a fake profile.

Geoff Ellis (below), CEO of DF Concerts and one of the original founders of T in the Park, said in 2019 that the event had “ran its course” and would not be making a return.

The National:

The popular music festival moved from the disused Balado airfield in Kinrossshire to Strathallan Castle in 2015.

However, traffic problems caused chaos the first year of the move and the festival was cancelled following a final event in 2016.
