Socks: This summer's festival fad?

Glastonbury started it, and now T in the Park is continuing it. The British festival season is well underway and the socks and wellies combination seems here to stay.

Revellers at this year's Kinross-based festival have been spotted entering the campsite with pairs of socks poking out over their wellies.

Despite the weather hitting a balmy 26 degree Celsius on Friday, hundreds of festival goers have opted to pull on their woollies suggesting that what started at Glasto may have become this festival season's hottest fashion trend.

With the forecast set to remain dry over the weekend it is unclear whether revellers will opt to swap their wellies for an airier pair of sandals or stay prepared for mud with their socks and wellies.

Having headlined Glastonbury last month Mumford and Sons are back at the top of the bill on Friday, supported by drum and bass outfit Chase and Status.

Rihanna will headline on Saturday night, before the Killers bring the festival to a close on Sunday.
