Fri 8th July - Sun 10th July 2011
When the BBC decides to cover a music festival, it needs to work within a tight budget to provide the best value for money for Licence Fee payers. This means we cannot always afford to record all performances from every stage. At T In The Park we are recording the Main Stage, Radio 1/NME Stage, King Tut's Wah Wah Tent and the BBC Introducing stage. These stages offer the main headline acts from the festival and interesting newer artists.
On occasion an act may not wish to be filmed or recorded. Artists may also agree to be recorded but only allow a limited number of songs to be aired. This could be for a number of reasons, for instance: the quality of some parts of the performance, because they do not wish to broadcast new or unreleased material, or they do not want to broadcast their entire live set.
The material an artist plays may not agree with the BBC Taste & Decency guidelines, such as containing excessive swearing. In these instances there is no way for the BBC to air that material.
The BBC is committed to making sure the sound and visual quality of a performance is high. In live open air arenas, the quality of recordings and performances can vary greatly due to environmental and technical factors. The BBC may decide that the recording of particular songs are not of a high enough quality to air, although we endeavour to provide at least a sample of a band's show if we feel they are central to the festival.
The BBC recieves a large number of comments across the weekend of the festival. Unfortunately due to this high volume we can only publish a small selection of those that that are submitted. We also select tweets from Twitter by subscribing to hashtags relating to BBC coverage or replies to BBC Twitter profiles such as BBC Three or BBC T In The Park.
