Taking place on Saturday 8th October accros more venues this year, the festival will takeover 02 ABC1, 02 ABC2, The Art School, The Art School (Vic Bar), King Tut’s, Broadcast, Nice N Sleazy and Flat 0/1, the festival is set to once again celebrate touring, local and breakthrough talent.
The festival’s creative curators have in the past brought the world unique sessions from the likes of Bastille, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Jake Bugg, Kodaline, Cage The Elephant and Hozier from the heart of Glasgow.
Set to take place on the same month TTV celebrates its milestone fifth birthday, the fourth ever Tenement Trail will once again takeover Scotland bringing together the country’s most avid and diehard music fans.
Tenement TV have had their finger to the pulse of the breakthrough, underground and international since 2011, continuing to give a passionate and premier platform to bands and fans in Scotland and beyond through unique live sessions and a packed music website.
Sheffield comeback Kings Milburn recently sold more than 10,000 tickets in six minutes for four homecoming shows making them a massive addition to this year’s Tenement Trail line-up. They will be joined by a really exciting mix of talent including Crash Club who recently played a show at Isle of Wight Festival after beating thousands of bands in an unsigned competition.
Tenement Trail Festival Director Chae Houston commented: “This is our biggest event yet! We’re delighted to have Milburn headline this year’s event and with the addition of the iconic ABC 1 venue to this year’s venues, we’re sure it’s going to be a TT to remember!”
#TT16 sets out to fill the void. Anything but just another festival, TT is dedicated to creating a unique event with a perfect mix of established, underground and breakthrough talent. Last year’s afterparty in the Flat 0/1 venue saw Crash Club blow the roof off the place, closing down the venue after reaching capacity an hour before the band were even on stage. Other iconic Tenement Trail moments include a rowdy Hector Bizerk set in Broadcast back in 2013 and WHITE’S top performance in The Art School in 2015.
Tickets are now on sale (Wednesday 22nd June 2016 at 16:00).
