To bring in every new year, King Tut’s holds a celebration of music with it’s annual ‘King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution’ festival which hosts a range of Scotland’s top emerging bands.
What is King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution?
Stretching over the first half of January, each night we host a new act headlining with at least three support acts. There are new faces and old ones, some bands have played at the venue before and some never even stepping foot in it prior to the day. All of the acts are Scottish locals with a whopping 80 artists performing over the 17 days.
King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution has been running consecutively for 9 years, and anyone who has been in the past would agree it’s the place to go to celebrate your January properly. It’s certainly not hard to see that each act is more than worth a listen. With a variety of music, from alternative to hard rock to hip-hop, there’s something for everyone to discover and enjoy.
Who do we expect to see?
Kickstarting the festivities, Motherwell band, Luna The Professor, headlines on January 3rd. The band first played at Tut’s previously back in December 2017, almost a year ago then returned in the summer of 2018. Supporting Luna The Professor are Light From The City and The Allies, who also played at King Tut’s together months earlier in September 2018. Following in the days after are acts like The Fences, Bemz, ST Martiins and many, many more.
One to watch is Bad Hombres who actually made their debut in King Tut’s back in 2017 with their indie pop sounds and ‘political wit’ explored through their lyrics. Another act that is no stranger to King Tut’s are The Rising Souls, who are described as soulful rock with meaty riffs and intricate grooves, but you can bet they always get the audience moving.
Closing KTNYR19 are four-piece, Walt Disco, who are known for their eerie stage personas, allegedly ‘glitter fuelled chaos’ and theatrical unpredictability thanks to their notorious live shows indicate that they are a must watch.
Want to experience all of KTNYR19? For £40 you can get access to every single night thanks to King Tut’s legendary ‘Golden Ticket’, and for 15 days filled with music - it’d be a no-brainer to hop on this opportunity.
