16 OF SCOTLAND’S FRESHEST UNSIGNED ACTS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED TO PLAY THE LEGENDARY T BREAK STAGE AT T IN THE PARK
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”
