T in the Park bans vuvuzela horns from festival

Festival-goers have been told not to take vuvuzelas to T in the Park in case they upset the musicians.

The South African plastic horn, which has caused controversy during the world cup, will be banned at this year’s festival, which runs from 9 to 11 July.

Organisers said the constant buzz of the instrument could put off artists at Scotland’s biggest music festival.

Acts this year include rapper Eminem and rock bands Muse and Kasabian.

The event is being held at Balado in Perth and Kinross and an 85,000-strong crowd is expected over the weekend.

Fans will not be allowed to bring vuvuzelas to the festival and there will be a ban on selling them on site.

Respect artists
