Festival goers heading to T in The Park later in July must leave their selfies stick at home after organisers enforced a ban.

It is believed that the accessory – which people use to take self-portraits on smartphones – will pose safety risks and also block other people's view of the performances.

Other forbidden items include flagpoles – like one's the seen at Glastonbury – and legal high nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. Flares, fireworks, laser pens, and air horns are also not allowed.

The move come days after The All England Lawn Tennis Club banned the selfie sticks from the 2015 Wimbledon tennis championship, over safety and "nuisance value".

"In common with many other major sports and entertainment events and cultural attractions, the championships will not allow selfie sticks into the grounds," read a ticketholders' guide, reported BBC News.

T in the Park will take place from 10-12 July. The impressive line-up includes Kasabian, Avicii, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Fatboy Slim, Jungle and Alabama Shakes.

The music event, which is being held at the Strathallan Castle estate for the first time, is expected to attract about 85,000 revellers per day.

"We've got a stunning new home, incredible music, delicious food and drink and the very best entertainment," T in the Park boss Geoff Ellis said.

"All we need now is for guests to arrive and help us ensure it's the best house-warming party in living memory."

He added: "But before everyone sets off, we need them to follow important advice from each of our partners to make sure they come prepared for the brand new site."
