ARC, Ku Bar and The Georgian Theatre present

Stockton Calling 2016

A day long music festival across an array of Stockton's finest venues featuring the best in up and coming acts, taking place every year on Easter Saturday and this year you can make the experience even better and head to the Stockton high street for the first ever Stockton Calling Sessions which take place Sat 5, Sat 12 and Sat 19 March!

For the seventh year, Stockton Calling takes over the town, with a line up featuring some of the country’s much loved artists, emerging musicians and the best the local music scene has to offer. Enjoy more than 70 bands across nine venues. 

Sheffield band Reverend and the Makers will headline ARC's stage at this year's Stockton Calling. The band, which is fronted by lyrical master and self-acclaimed poet Jon McClure, will be performing tracks from their five albums including their debut single Heavyweight Champion of the World, to their latest album Mirrors, which was released in October. 

Blossoms will headline Ku bar. Tipped as major 'ones to watch' by the powers of the music world, the band have also been named in the recently released BBC Sound of 2016 list and have sold out shows in London and Manchester and are preparing for their spring tour, before they head to Stockton Calling.

Manchester based four piece indie-band Dutch Uncles will headline The Georgian Theatre.
