The summer of live music is coming to an end soon, but there is still plenty to enjoy throughout the rest of this year.
With Hardwick Live now in the history books, the North East festival season is nearly over for the summer with just Northumberland’s Lindisfarne Festival and Newcastle’s Generator remaining across the region in September.
There is no need to miss the abundance of live music we have been able to enjoy this summer though, as plenty of artists are preparing tour dates with Newcastle’s world class venues offering a perfect backdrop to some remarkable nights.
