T In The Park could be replaced by a new festival in Glasgow, according to reports.

As previously reported, Scottish festival T In The Park has had a tricky few years, forced to relocate to a new site at Strathallan Castle in 2015, which came with numerous problems that contributed to a 42% fall in profits for its promoter, Live Nation subsidiary DF Concerts.

According to The Daily Record, DF is now in talks to launch a new event at Glasgow Green, which would be a new festival skewed to an older audience. But if those plans come off, T In The Park could be parked, for 2017 at least, the tabloid says

A spokesperson for Glasgow City Council told the newspaper: “We are in discussions with DF Concerts about hosting a non-camping festival in the city next July. We will not be, and are not interested in, hosting T In The Park”.

There has as yet been no official announcement made about a 2017 edition of T In The Park, with the festival’s website sitting dormant since July.
