Scottish trio Biffy Clyro are gearing up to headline this years T in the Park but did you know their first performance was on the T Break Stage back in 1999? Dedicated to unsigned Scottish talent the T Break Stage was launched by TITP founding partners Tennents Lager to help aspiring Scottish musicians reach larger audiences. Showcasing the musical talents of our fair country, the T Break Stage has been the starting point for many famous Scottish acts including Paisley lad, Paolo Nutini.
Selected by a panel of judges, 16 acts are chosen to perform during the T in the Park weekend held in Balado (11th – 13th July). The T Break Stage is a great chance for you to not only discover new music but possibly your new favourite band. Here are five acts we think you should check out during your TITP adventures:
Glasgow based folk-pop quartet, Blood Relatives are refreshing faces amongst the likes of Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men. Including two members from rising rockers Prides in their line-up, Blood Relatives bring summer to Glasgow with their blend of folk, pop and dance all rolled into one lovely package.
Describing the band as ‘metal in denial’ Fat Goth are a trio from Dundee with a killer edge making them one of Scotland’s most exciting bands. Voted as Breakout Act on XFM Scotland’s Drivetime show, expect killer riffs and early Queens Of The Stone Age vibes from Fat Goth.
We Came From Wolves
Originating from Perth and residing in Glasgow, We Came From Wolves closely mirror headliners Biffy Clyro. This similarity could be seen to help or hinder the quartet over the weekend with their, not so original, blend of indie rock anthems. If you’re a fan of Biffy and Twin Atlantic you’ll probably adore WCFW.
A different sound is welcomed to the T Break Stage from 19 year old, Edinburgh based Tisoki, or Bradley to his friends. The only electronic act on the line up, Tisoki will bring dubstep beats and synths to Balado for all those festival goers eager to dance to some fresh and energetic house.
Comprised of two girls and one boy, Glasgow pop trio Tuff Love will bring their dream like interpretation of indie pop to T in the Park. Take a break from going crazy at the main stage and listen to the lovely sounds of Tuff Love performing tracks from their debut, Junk EP.
Scotland is bursting at the seams with undiscovered talent so head over to T Break Stage and you might get to see a future TITP headliner before all your mates.
