Tickets are set to go on sale for the 2015 T in the Park festival at Strathallan Castle.

Consultations are being carried out over the event's proposed move, which will need full planning permission from Perth and Kinross Council.

DF Concerts chose to move the festival across Perthshire after concerns were raised over an oil pipeline running under its traditional Balado venue.

Tickets for the event, which runs from 10 to 12 July, go on sale on Friday.

An environmental impact assessment must be included in the final planning application, which is expected to be lodged early next year following the consultation period.

A survey of residents who attended recent public meetings about the move suggested 66% were of in favour of hosting the event locally, while 20% were opposed.

Up to 70,000 music fans are expected to camp out at the festival on the 1,000 acre estate, near Auchterarder.

Bus packages to the camp site will go on sale from 09:00 on Friday alongside "early bird" festival tickets.
