DF Concerts promote and manage T in the Park festival and owns and manages King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow.[1] They were previously behind the now defunct The Edge Festival and Connect.

They are one of the three major promoters in Scotland, the others being Regular Music and CPL (Cathouse Promotions Limited).
