The organisers of T in the Park are celebrating a successful festival by putting tickets for next year's event on sale before any bands are lined up.

The sun shone on almost 70,000 people who watched 170 bands on 10 stages in Balado, near Kinross, at the weekend.

The Foo Fighters and New Order were the headline acts on Saturday while Green Day and Travis performed on Sunday.

About 20,000 tickets for T in the Park in July 2006 will go on sale at 0900 BST on Tuesday.

Organisers said that with no Glastonbury Festival taking place in 2006, demand is expected to be higher than ever.

Geoff Ellis, chief executive of festival organisers Big Day Out Ltd, said: "Any fans that missed out on this year's event can be first on the phone to make sure they are at next year's festival, and with tickets still at this year's prices, there's no excuse not to.

"Hopefully, memories of this year's T in the Park and another year of fantastic gigs will be enough to keep music fans going until T 2006."

Next year's festival will take place on 8 and 9 July.
