The lineup for the eighth multi-award nominated Stockton Calling has arrived… The one day, nine venue-spanning, musical extravaganza is bringing some big names to the town.
Music fans can indulge their senses in an eclectic mix of music from some of the UK’s most highly acclaimed artists, rising stars and its usual mix of top North East musicians.
Pulling out all the stops to bring a wide range of headline acts from indie legends Milburn and Cast to the hotly tipped White, Narcs and The Bay Rays as well as home grown heroes Avalanche Party, Velvoir and Eat Fast.
Teesside’s Cattle & Cane will head up The Georgian Theatre stage to showcase tracks from their new album Mirrors, which will be released shortly after the festival.
Other bands and artists on the bill include Chris Helme, Tom Joshua, The Shimmer Band, Cape Cub, Allusondrugs, Kingsley Chapman & The Murder, Neon Waltz and Samantha Durnan amongst many other acts from a variety of genres.
A spokesperson from the event said: “Once again we’ve secured a top line up which reflects the growth of the festival over the past eight years. We’ve managed to pull off a real coup with Milburn, playing an intimate venue after their massive comeback tour last year. We think this year we have managed to make Stockton Calling stand alongside some of the most reputable festivals in the UK, which we couldn’t do without all the passionate promoters who have helped to put together the lineup.”
