Time for T: The Lafontaines will now be appearing at the festival

T in the Park has confirmed the 16 up-and-coming bands who’ll be taking to the T Break Stage at the massive Scottish summer festival.

With more than 1000 demos submitted, the T Break judging panel – made up of 13 music industry professionals from across the country –  were tasked with listening to some the freshest unsigned artists in Scotland since the call for entries closed on April 11. 

The following 16 acts have been chosen by the judges to play at the T Break Stage this summer, joining the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Beyoncé and Pulp at T in the Park, which takes place this year from July 8 to 10.

The artists performing are (in alphabetical order):

  • Aerials Up
  • Boycotts
  • Cancel the Astronauts
  • Carnivores
  • Church of when the Sh*t hits the Fan
  • Conquering Animal Sound
  • Crayons

  • Fatherson
  • Lady North
  • Marrik Layden Deft With Scatabrainz
  • Otherpeople
  • PAWS
  • Reverieme
  • The Lafontaines

Dave McGeachan from DF Concerts said: “The final line up is looking fantastic, with a great musical variety and lots of different genres.

“These 16 acts represent the most exciting new Scottish music around and I can’t wait to see them take to the stage at T in the Park”. 

Radio presenter Jim Gellatly, well known for championing of up and coming acts and presenter of In:Demand Uncut, explained: “Again a very high quality of entry, which made the task of selecting a final 16 all the more difficult.

“There are a bunch of acts that didn’t even make the final cut that I’ll be following up for future airplay on In:Demand Uncut. Yet again T Break has shown the incredible wealth of new talent our country has to offer.”
