The film was shown to Thursday night campers at the festival the following year, 2011 as campers are shown films to occupy their time on Thursday as there is no live music performed until the Friday of the festival. Director David Mackenzie told BBC News: "After shooting the film entirely at last year's T in the Park, it was only natural that we brought it back to where it was born, one year on." See more »

This is the real McCoy: visceral, authentic and very funny.
You Instead is as close as it gets to being at a music festival without actually being there. Right from the start the audience is wholly immersed in the festival atmosphere. This is, in part, down to the crew shooting the entirety of the film at the T in the Park event in Scotland and featuring the artists performing there (Biffy Clyro and Joe Mango to name two).
Director David Mackenzie took the two actors and their supporting cast and literally dropped them in it. Up to their knees in mud at times and performing amongst a genuine crowd of revellers from start to finish. Luke Treadaway and Natalia Tena are more than convincing as frontmen of their respective bands, largely helped by Tena's burgeoning career as a musician with her group Molotov Jukebox.
You Instead takes brilliant advantage of an environment where the rules of daily life no longer apply. The result is a film populated with larger than life characters in a world we rarely get a glimpse of, and it's a great fun place to spend an hour and a half.
