Music lovers heading to this year’s T in the Park festival are being warned to leave their selfie sticks and flagpoles at home, after organisers banned their use citing safety concerns and their impediment of views.

Organisers DF Concerts fret that such material could pose a trip hazard and could irritate others who find their view of the stage obstructed.

An estimated 85,000 people are expected to descend on Strathallan Castle for each day of the weekend event, each of whom is being advised not to smoke in tents, be cautious in the use of disposable barbecues and drink lots of water.

Geoff Ellis, chief executive of organisers DF Concerts, said: "We've got a stunning new home, incredible music, delicious food and drink and the very best entertainment. All we need now is for guests to arrive and help us ensure it's the best house-warming party in living memory.”

Other banned items include laughing gas, flares, fireworks, laser pens and air horns.
