SCOTLAND’S biggest music festival, T in the Park, has launched its annual appeal for fresh talent to appear on its T Break Stage.

Last year Inverness/Dingwall trio Spring Break represented the north at T in The Park’s new home at Strathallan Estate in Perthshire.

Now the hunt is on for further acts from the Highlands and across Scotland with the potential to follow them.

Over T Break’s 21-year-history, it has hosted performances from such future stars as Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol, Paolo Nutini, Twin Atlantic and The View.

Acts can submit their best three tracks via Soundcloud through the T Break website ( The judging panel, consisting of 16 of Scotland’s most influential music industry experts including artists, promoters, bookers, managers and members of the media, will then listen to every demo before handpicking the 16 acts to play the T Break Stage at T in the Park on July 8 to 10.

"T Break is a highlight for me every year," T Break judge Dave McGeachan said.

"Working as senior promoter at DF Concerts I see a lot of up and coming acts from all over the world, but there is something great about taking the time to see a snapshot of what’s coming through in Scotland every year.

"I’m never disappointed. I’m already looking forward to seeing what this year’s acts have in store."

Entrants must be 18 or over, live in Scotland, and must be currently unsigned.

Entries must be submitted before the deadline of midnight on Friday April 8 2016.

Tennent’s Lager will announce the line-up for the T Break Stage in May.
