Police Scotland has issued posters warning festival goers of the recent deaths linked to fake ecstasy pills:
The poster warns, "These or other dangerous drugs may be circulating at this festival".
"Be Safe. Don't risk it", it adds.
Police in Northern Ireland are working to establish whether fake 'Rolex' ecstasy drugs, thought to be linked to the death of seven young people in Scotland are the same ones suspected to be responsible for a number of sudden deaths in Belfast.
It had been feared that 8 unexplained deaths of people in their 20s and 30s over the past month in Northern Ireland had been caused by the same batch of drugs, however police said no single drug was responsible.
PSNI officers told UTV they were liasing with officers across the UK, and in the republic of Ireland.
Police in Scotland were keen to send out a warning on ecstasy ahead of this weekend's T in the Park music festival.
Seven deaths have been linked to fake ecstasy pills being circulated across Scotland, with an 18-year-old woman dying after taking the tablets.
Drug "amnesty bins" will be available at the entrance to the campsites in Balado, Perth and Kinross where illegal substances can be disposed of without risk of prosecution, police said.
Chief Inspector George MacDonald said: "We want to encourage people to enjoy themselves but our priority is keeping people safe and we want to make them aware of the direct dangers of becoming involved with drugs."
Police Scotland's Superintendent Grahame Clarke said the fake ecstasy tablets that have been linked to the deaths of seven people are a "real concern" and "could contain a cocktail of toxic ingredients".
A teenager has died after taking a fake ecstasy tablet - the seventh reported death in Scotland linked to the pills.
The 18-year-old woman died yesterday in Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, and three of her friends were admitted to hospital after taking the pills.
The tablets circulating in Scotland contain toxic chemicals with potentially fatal effects, Police Scotland said.
The pills are green and stamped with a crown logo and some have been found to contain a dangerous stimulant Methoxyamphetamine, known as PMA, police said.
They are also warning of a white pill with the Mitsubishi logo imprinted on it, found to contain the chemicals 5IT or AMT, and a yellow tablet with a star logo.
An 18-year-old woman has died and three of her friends taken to hospital in Scotland after taking fake ecstasy tablets.
Police say the green pills, which are stamped with the crown logo, contain toxic chemicals and are linking them to a number of deaths over the last two months.
Three men aged 18, 21 and 25 were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
Superintendent Grahame Clarke warned the public that the pills could contain a "toxic" cocktail of ingredients:
"We have yet to establish if this particular pill is to blame for the death of this young woman, but the fact that she and her friends took pills described as green and with a Rolex stamp on it causes us real concern.
"The exact contents of the pills are unknown but they could contain dangerous chemicals and users need to be aware of the dangers and understand the devastating effect they can have."
