Tickets for BBC’s The Biggest Weekend in Perthshire went on sale on Monday morning.
Some 40,000 briefs are said to have been made available to the public for the two-day festival at Scone Palace, which takes place from May 25 – 26.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will take to the stage in Tayside on the Saturday, with Simple Minds, Nigel Kennedy, Amy MacDonald, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Julie Fowlis and Jamie Cullum among the other big names playing the event.
Tickets went on sale at 8.30am on Monday and the BBC said it predicted the tickets would sell out, with 20,000 made available for each day.
Locals are being given priority in purchasing tickets, with the first “pot” – 60% of the briefs going on sale – being set aside for residents in the Perth and Kinross Council area.
The next set of tickets, given second-highest priority, have been set aside for those living at Dundee, Kirkcaldy, Falkirk and other Perth postcodes. A third pot is available on general sale to the public.
Some music fans who managed to get their tickets for the Scone Palace event took to social media to express their delight.
Helen Cameron posted on Facebook: “Great, we’re going to Perth.”
And Lins Mc added: “Yeeha, Scone Palace here we come!”
