The people behind T in the Park

Obviously there are many, many people behind the scenes who work throughout the year to bring T in the Park to fruition. Dedicated teams of people who's commitment to the festival has meant that it has been able to grow and evolve into the quality major event it is and because of that level of dedication T in the Park has gone on to become recognised as one of the key players in the global music calendar. T in the Park can most definitely claim to be one of the British music industry’s greatest success stories.

DF Concerts

DF Concerts is one of Europe’s leading concert promotion companies bringing the best live music and events to audiences in Scotland.

Founded in the early 1980s and now managed by CEO Geoff Ellis from offices in Glasgow, the company works with a huge number and diverse range of artists from cutting edge unsigned talent to the music industry’s biggest stars.

Alongside T in the Park, the company promotes and co-promotes a diverse range of music events including the V-festivals in England, T on the Fringe, Live & Loud, and a number of concerts in Europe.

Over the past few years the company have been responsible for the record breaking Robbie Williams dates at Murrayfield Stadium and the Eminem date at Hampden Park, as well as Big Day Out At The Green, headlined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters, the Download festival at Glasgow Green and the Red Hot Chili Peppers show at Murrayfield Stadium.

DF Concerts also owns and manages the legendary Glasgow venue King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, which has held the title of the UK’s Best Live Music Venue for three years as voted by Radio One.

Last year, the company also broadened their portfolio beyond music by staging and promoting Glasgow On Ice with IRN-BRU at George Square in partnership with Scottish Events. Using their extensive experience of event management and booking international talent, the company brought some of the world’s top ice skaters to the city to perform in Scotland’s first ever outdoor ice show.

Geoff Ellis is the only Scottish-based member on the Executive of the Concert Promoters’ Association and the company was awarded the Lloyd’s TSB Sunday Mail Great Scot award for T in the Park.

Tennent’s Lager

Tennent’s Lager has been associated with music in Scotland since 1987 when Tennent’s Live was launched to provide a platform for live music across the country.

The brand’s commitment to music has since gone from strength to strength, and this investment has helped to create a unique and exciting range of music events and initiatives, which have had a powerful impact on cultural life in Scotland.

In addition to T in the Park they include: T Break, an established programme aiming to support new talent across Scotland through a variety of platforms, including showcases, seminars, a journalism and photography initiative, and the T Break Stage at T in the Park; and TRIPTYCH, an eclectic, underground bill of international and homegrown artists performing across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

No other brand invests so much in music in Scotland, and the success of Tennent’s Lager’s music investment is such that it has been hailed the unofficial ‘Arts Council for contemporary music in Scotland’.
