If you want more information on all of the facilities at T in the Park, scroll beneath and read on.

T in the Park Camping: Facilities

Toilets - For men and women, you will come across the conventional festival toilets. With portaloos, long drops and urinals for both genders, that’s right, female urinals, there will be no need for you to resort to a bush. Checked and cleaned regularly by the T in the Park stewards, you can be sure that the loos will be kept to the highest standard. Coming with hand washing facilities there is no reason for you not to wash your hands, and with thousands of people using the same toilets, keeping your hands clean will become second nature!

Luxury Toilets - Where you can do your business in full privacy and business, even in the craziness of a festival, the T in the Park Refresh Pamper Stations are definitely worth a go. For a minor charge, you can have full use of the plush toilets and luxurious hand washing facilities. There are two Refresh Pamper stations; one in the campsite and one in the arena.

Showers -
Onto something a little more refreshing now, the showers. There’s nothing better than a warm shower first thing in the morning to get you started and ready to rock n roll. Certainly not the best showers in the world, no festival showers are heavenly, but a clean body will certainly make you feel better. Not everyone uses the showers and takes only the essential baby wipes and dry shampoo, if you like smelling fresh then these are the perfect solution. So bring your towel along with you and get sparkling clean. Oh and don’t forget your swimwear.

Luxury Showers - Part of the Refresh Pamper Stations, the showers are a world away from the other showers available throughout the site. Make your hair festival glamorous with the hair care items such as straighteners and dryers. You can get all this for a small charge only. The best part is, you can go back and visit it any time you like. There are two Refresh Pamper Stations; one in the campsite and one in the arena.

Water - Throughout the festival site, both the main arena and the campsite, you will come across fresh drinking water pumps that you can use any time of the day. After being tested, the water is 100% acceptable to drink. Simply keep your plastic water bottle and refill it whenever you like. The water is free and would be more economical for you.

Food - Smell the glorious food wafting under your nose and grab something delectable from one of the various stalls on the T in the Park site. Forget your normal burger van; T in the Park has gone all out to make sure your taste bud requirements have been filled. From classic Scottish dishes to posh nosh, dig into the food of your choice available at different prices. So come along and tuck into your favourite meals from around the world.

First Aid Tents - If you or one of your friends has an injury, stay calm and pop along to one of the many First Aid tents on site. Qualified to deal with most injuries, the staff at the First Aid tents will do everything in their power to get you back on the mend. Anyone with a wound should visit one of these tents immediately so someone can deal with it as soon as possible, rather than you living in pain all weekend.

Make sure you come by and check out the almighty fairground at T in the Park this year.

Fancy Dress Friday: The only day over the weekend dedicated to dressing up and making a fool out of yourself, Fancy Dress Friday is the only excuse you need for dusting off your old Elvis Presley costume.

Whether you and your mates go as a group or you all want to dress up as individual characters, setting a day for fancy dress has become something of a ritual at festivals in later years. Brightening the festival up and making your weekend worth it, dig out your favourite costume or come up with an idea of your own.
