There really is no better feeling than attending a really great gig, right? Teesside musician Heather Story couldn’t agree more. After being inspired by the profoundly positive impact live music has had upon her own wellbeing Heather founded Attending Music Performances Together (AMPT) in 2018; a non-profit music organisation with a primary focus of promoting the benefits gained from the experience of live music. 

You can experience the joy of live music firsthand at AMPT’s Alldayer on Saturday 13th July  at Westgarth Social Club, where a jam-packed line-up will include some of the North East’s finest musical talent across two stages, alongside Leeds-born indie alternative four-piece The Strawberries.

The downstairs stage will form a safe-zone space full of atmosphere and intimacy, whereas the upstairs stage will provide a full band experience with bags of energy. Expect exceptional performances from Middlesbrough’s own atmospheric alt. rockers Abel Raise The Cain, Darlington’s rising star Eve Conway, garage rock band Oilbirds, Durham’s alt. quartet The Yada Yada Yadas and indie trio Strangeways, plus there’s doomy beats courtesy of Swears, DIY grungers Heel Turn, Newcastle’s indie popsters Mayfare, ‘Boro indie blues band Pink Tide, Ste from Mouses and songwriter Paige Temperley.

AMPT’s mission is to deliver a knock-out music festival whilst raising awareness and funding for local mental health charity Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind. The all-day celebration will make all the difference to local people who are facing challenging times, so this mindful music festival is not one to be missed!
