This week Tennent’s Lager begin their nationwide search for Scotland’s freshest unsigned musical talent with the launch of T Break 2014.
Tennent’s Lager have been supporting Scotland’s grassroots music scene through T Break since 1996, giving 16 unsigned artists each year, the chance to play the legendary T Break Stage at T in the Park .
Entry for T Break is now open and acts up and down the country can submit their demos for the chance to join Main Stage headliners and former T Break band Biffy Clyro, below, on the T in the Park bill this year.
T Break offers an unrivalled opportunity for acts to showcase their material to industry experts and music fans alike on the biggest platform for emerging talent at T in the Park – the T Break Stage.
This year’s Friday headliners Biffy Clyro are testament to where this support can help lead to.
T Break’s judging panel consists of 14 of Scotland’s most influential music industry experts including promoters, bookers, artist managers, music business academics and members of the media.
This team of music industry experts will listen to every demo submitted before handpicking the 16 acts to play the T Break Stage over the 11th – 13th July.
Dave McGeachan, Senior Promoter at DF Concerts and T Break Judge said: “Year after year we see fantastic acts coming through T Break, many of which we book via King Tut’s and across our other venues across Scotland throughout the year.
“The atmosphere at the T Break Stage during the festival is always electric and so many bands have gone on to really great things – I look forward to the fantastic talent we are about to uncover this year!”
T Break is open to musicians of all genres. To get involved entrants must be 18 or over, live in Scotland, and must be currently unsigned – full details on how to submit demos is available on www.facebook.com/TennentsTBreak and www.tennents.com/tbreak and entries before the deadline of midnight on Monday 31st March.
