Fancy blagging a pair of weekend tickets for this year’s T In The Park?
To celebrate the lead up to the 18th T In The Park (8th-10th July), Tennent’s have teamed up with key bars around Scotland to give you the chance to become a headline Main Stage act for one night only – and to win weekend tickets for the festival.
We’ll be setting up a mini Main Stage performance pod in the Arches foyer, in which you and up to TWO friends will be let loose to belt out your best version of one of the following classic festival tracks:
The Strokes – Last Night
James – Sit Down
Kings Of Leon – Sex on Fire
Biffy Clyro – Many of Horror (When We Collide)
The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
Florence and the Machine – You Got The Love
Jessie J – Price Tag
The Saturdays – Work
You’ll get to pick the crowd backdrop of your choice, and have access to a host of fancy dress, wigs and other rock n roll paraphenalia to help your performance along.
If your video rocks, it’ll be uploaded to YouTube to be judged by an independent panel. The best four performances from around the country will win a full weekend ticket for themselves and a guest.
Participants must be over 18. Please bring ID. Terms and conditions apply. Please enter through Argyle Street.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
