Tennent’s Lager put out their annual call in March for Scotland’s unsigned acts to submit their demos to T Break in the hope of landing one of 16 highly coveted slots on the T Break Stage at T in the Park, and they have now announced who will be taking to the legendary T Break Stage this summer.

T Break’s judging panel is made up of 14 of Scotland’s most respected and influential music industry experts who listen to each and every track submitted before coming together to deliberate their shortlists. The judges then decide on the final 16 acts – who will potentially follow in the footsteps of this year’s T in the Park headliner and former T Break band Biffy Clyro – to make up the T Break 2014 line-up.

Simon Neil, Biffy Clyro front man said of their T Break performance in 1999, “It was probably one of the biggest moments of our lives, even now looking back, that first time you feel like a real band is phenomenal…that was literally the break, T gave us the break”

The 16 acts that will play the T Break Stage this year are (click on names to go to the bands facebook pages):

George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager said: “We are T Break dream slogandelighted with the line-up again this year, every year we’re amazed with the volume of fantastic entries T Break receives. We are immensely proud to continue to support Scotland’s grassroots music through T Break and I believe that former T Break band Biffy Clyro’s headline slot on the Main Stage this summer is testament to the importance of this support and to where it can lead”

Dave McGeachan, Senior Promoter from T Break partners DF Concerts sits on the judging panel. He said: “This is an incredibly strong year for Scottish music and the talent coming out of Scotland’s grassroots music scene in particular is of a very high standard. I feel we’ve managed to get a really great representation across many different genres with this year’s selection and I look forward to seeing some excellent live performances over the weekend.”

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
