For anyone concerned that Liam Gallagher’s latest vehicle, Beady Eye, are set to play at Balado this July, there is some hope, as fears have been expressed over T in the Park with relation to health and safety thanks to the Forties pipeline which runs underneath the site.
It has been reported that the Health and Safety Executive believes that the site should not be used for this year’s event.
Perth and Kinross council has approved the festival, albeit with a 23-point list of “revised conditions” but Scottish ministers who will make the final decision.
A spokesperson for DF Concerts said: “T in the Park has operated on the same site now for 14 years, the pipeline is buried under the ground and the site remains the same as in previous years. It is important to note that the pipeline runs down a significant length of Scotland under public buildings such as schools and Aberdeen Airport and is arguably at its safest during the weekend of T in the Park when it is managed and protected around the clock.”
