T In The Park has announced the 16 emerging acts set to play the T Break Stage this year.
After listening to almost 1400 entries, the judging panel has decided to give Tango In The Attic, Little Eskimos, Mike Nisbit a helping hand in their career by giving them an opportunity to play Scotland’s biggest festival.
My Cousin I Bid You Farewell, The French Quarter, Punch And The Apostles and Dead Boy Robotics will also appear over the weekend as well as Ming Ming And The Ching Chings, Barn Owl and We Are Trapped In Kansas.
G1ft, Maple Leaves, Gong Fei and Homework have also been selected along with Brother Louis Collective and Popolo.
One of the judging panel, Radio 1’s Vic Galloway said: “It’s been a difficult job as ever to whittle the entries down to just 16, the sheer quality and diversity of unsigned music in Scotland never fails to surprise me.
“This is a great selection of the new talent out there right now and I can’t wait to head to the tent and check them out. These bands prove just how vibrant and impressive the Scottish music scene is.”
Camping tickets for the festival have sold out but there are a limited number of non-camping weekend tickets still available for £145.
T In The Park 2009 will take place at Balado, Kinross-shire from 10-12 July.
Tickets have now been made available for Thursday camping which will include a Silent Disco, an outdoor cinema and a fun fair.
