Reliably informed

In the third of our stage focuses for this year’s NARC. Fest, taking place across the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle on Saturday 4th July, Linsey Teggert from Confusion Is Next tells us about her line-up at The Tyne Bar.

“For those of you who prefer your music unapologetically loud and rifftastic, The Tyne Bar’s outdoor stage is the place to be at this year’s NARC. Fest. Confusion Is Next are thrilled to present four incredible bands who sit on the heavier side of the music spectrum.

Opening the Tyne Bar stage are local newcomers Kylver with their progressive instrumental rock. Creating an intriguingly dark sound that ranges from post-rock atmospherics to doom-laden riffs, you can expect a quite literally earth-shaking performance.

Next up are enigmatic garage-rockers Avalanche Party. Born in the wilds of the North Yorkshire Moors via Teesside, the four-piece are just about to unleash their debut EP featuring the likes of the menacing, slow-burning Money with its brooding vocals and ferocious rock swagger.

Fast gaining a reputation as one of the most exciting bands in the North East right now, we’re thrilled to have Shades adding their intense brand of post-hardcore to the proceedings. Musically complex and lyrically dexterous, their latest EP Lose Your Chains is a life-affirming piece of work that belies their youth. An unmissable live experience.

Headlining the Tyne Bar stage are Welsh rock lunatics Falls, who are making a special trip up to sunny Newcastle from Flintshire, North Wales just for NARC. fest. Self-proclaimed purveyors of ‘gash pop’, the four-piece play insanely infectious blasts of face-melting noise rock with hooky melodies and shredding riffs. Heavy they are, but mean and moody they ain’t: these guys bring the party wherever they play. You may not leave with your ear drums (or sanity) in tact, but you’ll have a bloody massive grin on your face.”

Further stage announcements will be made over the coming weeks, keep an eye on our Facebook page for more info about the festival. All events are free entry!
