The T in the Park music festival has beaten Glastonbury to win the top prize at this year's UK Festival Awards.

The event, held in July near Kinross in Scotland, won best major festival and an award for best facilities and organisation in the public vote.

The Bestival event on the Isle of Wight won the innovation award and best medium-sized festival.

"It is, from my own experience and from what I'm told by almost every artist that plays the event, the best in the world," he said.

Green Day, New Order and Keane were among the top acts to perform at this year's event.
