I was incensed to see the protests against the new T in the Park venue.
Along with being incensed that they had to move in the first place.
I have always had a big problem with adults and rules, especially ones that spoil fun for no reason.
Grown ups. Avoid them at all costs.
Over 10 years ago I stood outside my first T and looked around in wonder at the hugeness of the Creation.
I thought "I want to meet the guy who had the balls to make this happen".
A few years later I was in the Brunswick Hotel in Glasgow and I was introduced to a lovely, humble man named Geoff Ellis.
3000 questions later I smiled at the fact I actually got to meet the guy who had been instrumental in creating one of the best festivals in the World.
Anyone who steadfastly keeps to their goals no matter what the system throws at you deserves a medal in my opinion.
Why anyone would want to create a business in the Country is beyond me.
It is almost like they are testing you to see if they can break you. Obstacle after obstacle till you either break or make.
Geoff and his crew have overcome every bullshit and legit rule and regulation and I am so delighted that this is all going ahead.
But why oh why do we not strive to make this easy for him rather than hard?
T in the Park bring huge pleasure to millions of people, not just the ones lucky enough to be there but also for all who enjoy the streaming and recordings of the incredible range of music for the ears of all ages and tastes.
Given that Scots have one of the worst health records in the World let me tell you why T in the Park is good for our health.
Fresh air, sunshine and mud
It is essential for us to spend time outside. There are a variety of reasons for this but the main biggy is Vit D.
3 days in the fresh air is beyond brilliant for your health.
Mud is full of healthy bacteria and we need these little guys to boost our immune system so more immune system boosting here.
The benefits of music have been known for centuries but massively underplayed in the West.
Music rearranges matter, helps up to relax and let go, causes elevation in our vibration leaving us feeling good on every level.
Laughter and fun
We do not laugh enough now adays in our big, serious, adult world. At this festival you will meet with your mates, have quality time off and have a blast with all the new people you will undoubtedly meet. Laughing is a brilliant way to let go and release.
Community and social integration
We now lead very separate lives and are often too busy to hang with our family and friends.
The festival atmosphere creates one enormous Festival family and you create bonds and make new friends while looking after each other and enjoying being round the campfire listening to the beats.
You will move and dance more over this weekend than you probably do all year.
Add in all the miles you walk too as the site is so huge, you have ticked every box on the healing plan.
Gratitude and Appreciation
2 of the top vibrations to be beaming out no matter what. You will experience this effortlessly at T.
Having all your top bands and Dj's under the one roof and usually all of your besties too and this year new venue looks to be off the charts spectacular.
There is now so much on offer at this festival, you can use the time to chill out, get your hair done, have a massage or treatment. Whatever you are doing at the festival, if it feels good it is therapy.
Hydration and Nutrition
Always good to drink a lot of water and eat a ton of good protein etc when you are partying.
Again huge variety on offer here.
Clearly it can be the time of excess too, but as long as we retain an element of balance you will always be better for the experience.
T in the Park rocks.
Here's to Geoff and his dynamic team, the obstacles are cleared, rocknrollllllllllllllllllllll.
