Celebrating its 23rd year, T In The Park is Scotland's largest music festival, running for 3 days days and 4 nights in July. This year, the festival was being headlined by Calvin Harris, The 1975, LCD Soundsystem, The Stone Roses and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Last year, the festival moved to the regal grounds of Strathallan Castle and we couldn't wait to head along and check out the new site.

With six stages to choose from, there's so much to see throughout the day but we decided to start at the BBC Introducing Stage which showcases new, unsigned talent and has helped break artists such as Calvin Harris and Ed Sheeran.

18 year old Fenne Lilly from Bristol was starting off the day with a gorgeous "folk-tinged" set.

We then headed over to the T Break Stage where Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 were getting ready to take to the stage.

I must admit that it was their awesome name that drew us over and we had no idea what to expect, but they were amazing and rocked the stage with DIY costumes and handmade props.

A cash machine had been stolen from the festival earlier in the weekend, so everyone loved it when a cardboard ATM was thrown into the crowd.

We then stopped off at the Radio One Stage to catch a bit of Maximo Park and Jake Bugg.

We were starting to feel peckish so we went for a look around the food trucks where we stumbled across Loch Fyne serving fresh oysters and seafood.

We tucked into an amazing crab & salmon burgers which was exactly what we needed to perk us up.

Feel refreshed, we headed over to King Tut's Wah Wah Tent where Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls were starting their set.

Frank rocked the stage, jumping in the air with his guitar while the crowd sang along to every word.

Fresh from Miami, Craig David's new DJ project TS5 was net to take on the King Tut's Wah Wah Tent.

He played a selection of classic songs, covers and new hits which the crowd loved!

Finally, it was time for the headliners who were Red Hot Chilli Peppers and we couldn't wait to see them live. They were just as amazing and we had hoped and the perfect closing act for the festival. See you there in 2017!
