T in the Park's final fling starts classically

Nicola Benedetti: Starting Sunday with style.

Hopefully leaving the murky mud bath of last night behind, who knows what is in store for T in its final day today.

It started on the right (welly-clad) foot though, opening with a classical act debut for the Main Stage. Here Scottish star and violin virtuoso, Nicola Benedetti wowed the early afternoon crowd in a big first for T.

Holding her 6.3 million pound violin in safe hands, well away from the mud which still plagues the festival site, she educated festival goers in her fine art, playing ferociously, exuding passion from every movement of her bow, all the while looking highly glam amongst this shabby-chic affair- any hint of the chic is fading fast.

After yesterday's conditions leaving fake tan redundant, alongside any pride in appearance, on the whole, the upbeat crowd are Scottish to the core, and continue to get on with things a bit like Andy Murray- yes, I've just remembered there is a real life outside of T. It's very easy to forget about that existence when you're wrapped up in the alternative reality for the weekend.

Hoping our classical adventures this morning will hold us in good stead for the day ahead, we're off to delve into the pop extravaganza, Nicki Minaj is in town don't you know. For the time being, the rain is a drizzle at most, and the mud continues to work the thighs better than one of those silly foam thigh toners.

Unfortunately Christina Perri and her Jar Of Hearts are no longer able to make the festival due to flight issues, nonetheless, Swedish House Mafia are still set to smash it tonight.

We might be on our last day, but despite the trench foot, there's still a massive party to be had at Scotland's biggest music festival.
