The first batch of tickets for next year's T in the Park festival sold out in under 10 hours, organisers have revealed.

Music fans rushed to snap up the 40,000 tickets when they went on sale at noon on Tuesday.

Those who missed out will be able to try again when the first artists and line-up are announced early next year.

T in the Park 2009, which will again be held at Balado near Kinross, will run from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 July.

Festival organiser, Geoff Ellis, of DF Concerts, said: "We are delighted to have been able to give so many T in the Parkers the opportunity to book their place at next year's festival and to have sold out in a single day.

"There was a terrific atmosphere onsite and staggering performances across all stages.

"We have already started organising next year's event and are already looking forward to it."

Festival-goers at this year's T in the Park were treated to performances from REM, The Verve, the Prodigy and Amy Winehouse.
