Speaking about the lineup, the festival founder Chae Houston said: “The TENEMENT TRAIL team have been working hard to create a line-up that will excite fans of both TENEMENT TRAIL and new music. We have a brilliant mix of touring and local talent in there and to see a local band like Fatherson top the bill after they smashed their headline show at the Academy at the weekend is amazing.”
