As yet another part of what is set to be an incredible summer of live music in the North East, UK indie band The Mystery Jets have been announced as a new headliner for the first Coastella Festival which is set to take place in North Tyneside at the start of July.

The three day event, running from Friday, June 30 until Sunday, July 2 will play host to around 100 artists across the weekend and will have a strong focus on local talent with the southern based act replacing Andrew Cushin on the lineup after the local singer/songwriter could no longer perform due to tour commitments in the USA.

In addition to the newly announced Mystery Jets, music fans can enjoy sets from local acts such as Hector Gannet, Ruth Lyon, Kieran Bowe and Liam Fender. Judge Jules and The Futureheads will also be playing huge sets.
