Festival season is almost upon us, and Geordies across the city may be travelling further afield to see their favourite musicians perform live.
However, festival-goers may not have to travel far as the announcement of festivals in and around Newcastle is continuously growing as we get increasingly nearer to the summer months.
The latest festival announcement on home turf comes from In Between Days. The outdoor festival will be held in Times Square in Newcastle, over three days.
Newcastle’s Times Square is regularly used as a space for large scale events. The open-air venue has previously held events and screenings for important football matches (such as the Euros and the World Cup), has an ice rink in the winter months, and will have a special Eurovision screening this month.
Over Bank Holiday weekend on Friday, May 26 until Sunday, May 28, In Between Days will take place featuring some incredible local artists and other notable names in the industry.
Local musicians Included on the Friday line-up are the likes of Andrew Cushin, Sam Fender’s older brother Liam Fender, and Lizzie Esau. Joining them on the stage is Tom Walker, Australian rock band DMA’s and many more.
On the Saturday of the festival, Manchester legends Happy Mondays will perform, as well as The Stone Roses vocalist Ian Brown, The Lightning Seeds and Cast.
On Sunday, Newcastle festival-goers will experience indie pop bands such as Two Door Cinema Club and The Wombats, while Twin Atlantic and Black Honey will also take to the stage.
The full line-up is yet to be announced, so the artists above will not be the only ones to perform at the Newcastle festival.
Tickets are priced at £40.95 per day. To book tickets, please visit the In Between Days website.
