WITH a day to go until Scotland’s festival for music discovery takes over 10 venues with 50+ bands in Glasgow, Tenement Trail festival organisers have outlined the key information you need to know in order to ensure you have the best festival day ever!
Tickets are available for a cheaper price in advance here. Wristbands will be available to purchase on the day from box office.
All tickets can be exchanged for a wristband from the main box office in 02 ABC from 12:30-21:00. Please make sure you collect your wristband early to avoid queues and for those purchasing itckets, it is cash only.
Tenement TV will have a team of social media experts roaming the festival but we want to see your pics, tweet, videos and Instagram stories too so make sure you use the hashtag #TT17 and tag @tenementtv !
Set to take over ten of Glasgow’s most popular venues, Tenement Trail will see music fans dash between the ABC on Sauchiehall Street and a variety of intimate basement bars, clubs and pubs. Returning to the legendary King Tut’s on St Vincent Street, the festival will also see bands perform in The Priory Bar, Broadcast, Nice N Sleazy, Flat 0/1, ABC1, ABC2, The Garage, G2 and The Attic Bar. So while The Temperance Movement blow the roof off the ABC, you’ll also be given the chance to discover some exciting new talent in intimate surroundings.
Please note that wristbands allow entry into all ten venues, however it’s on a first come first served basis. With T Break winners Cheap Teeth kicking off proceedings at 2pm, get to know the set times and plan in advance to avoid any disappointment. Some shows will be really busy, so make sure you save the set times and get planning!
Above all else, the main ethos of Tenement Trail is discovery. With a line-up boasting some of the finest talent in the UK, from established names to hotly tipped artists to new local bands at the very beginning of their journey, we want you to discover something new, fresh and exciting. Make sure you get down early, get to as many venues as possible and make the most of your day!
THE WOMEN OF TENEMENT TRAIL
In an industry where so many demonstrate ineptitude in addressing the massive inequalities that continue to persist to this day, Tenement Trail is a festival that prides itself on being diverse and inclusive. Known for spotlighting the rising female talent from Scotland and much further afield, this year’s bill is bursting with a succession of artists that have all of the tools to go as far as they’d like to and whose material is enchanting fans far and wide. Check them out here.
THE ROCK N ROLL ROUTE
With the UK currently bursting at the seams with exhilarating guitar bands, it would only be right to shine a light on some of the best rock music the nation has to offer. Watching it come alive in a sweaty packed-out venue full of like-minded passionate individuals and a rip-roarious atmosphere, it doesn’t take long to be reminded of what made the genre such an indomitable force in the first place. With that in mind, we’ve highlighted some of the best guitar bands that are worth checking out at our inner-city festival over here.
THE ELECTRONIC ROUTE
From shimmering, euphoric synth-pop to dark and brooding electronica, there are so many ways for today’s artists to provoke a reaction from the modern listener. No longer do musicians rely on the trusty formula of drums, bass and guitar to make a serious impact when so much technology is at our disposal. While gritty rock & roll will always be synonymous with the Glasgow music scene, an increasingly eclectic bunch of artists have risen to the forefront in recent years; spanning a whole range of genres and styles. With that in mind, those looking for hook-laden alt-pop or innovative electronica, you should look no further than the artists here.
THE ECLECTIC ROUTE
In today’s world, it’s perfectly commonplace for a person’s playlist to entail everything from the most rugged of underground hip-hop to jovial indie anthems with a dash of everything in between thrown in for good measure. At Tenement Trail, we aim to mirror the disparate leanings of the modern music consumer and after providing comprehensive lists for genres such as rock ‘n’ roll and electronica, we’ve now compiled a handy list of music that is sure to cater to those that relish the undefinable. Check it out here.
