The quest begins for the opportunity to play the T Break Stage over the 12th – 14th July, with judging by 14 of Scotland’s most influential music industry experts including promoters, bookers, artist managers, music business academics and members of the media.

George Kyle, Head of Sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager, emphasised the passion for new music: “Year after year we see a huge amount of Scottish talent coming through T Break. It’s no secret that we have a vibrant grassroots music scene in Scotland; something Tennent’s believe should be celebrated, encouraged and supported. T Break achieves this through providing artists with a platform on the T Break Stage at T in the Park and through the industry exposure the bands gain throughout the whole T Break experience. We can’t wait to hear from bands this year and to see who will be playing the T Break Stage at T in the Park’s 20th year.”

T Break 2012 act Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher was named one of The Scottish Sun’s, ‘Magnificent Seven – Scots acts set to be massive in 2013’. Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher have also featured in the soundtrack to a nationwide advertising campaign for Caledonia Best and have been nominated for Best New Scottish band at the Scottish Variety Awards 2013.

The band were keen to support the launch:“The experience was invaluable. I suppose when people think you’re good enough to play among the biggest names in the industry you can’t help but feel good about what you’re doing.  It’s wonderful to be sighted among the most exciting up and coming bands of the moment so keep it up T Break! There are plenty of up and coming Scottish acts deserving of their day on the T Break Stage.”

T Break is open to musicians of all genres and each year attracts talented acts from across the musical spectrum.  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 must be submitted before the deadline of midnight on Friday 29th March.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
