The inaugural Songs From Northern Britain, a brand new next generation music festival, will take place at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre and Green on Saturday 11th November. The event will focus on showcasing emerging acts from both Teesside and Scotland, with the first all-day event headlined by mighty garage punks Avalanche Party.

Joining them on the bill will be Hartlepool’s Plaza, fresh from a short UK tour, hotly tipped nu-folkers Tom Joshua and experimental indie kids Luuna, whilst amongst the plethora of Scottish talent are surf-rockers The Van T’s, poetic punks Declan Welsh & The Decadent West, dark alt. rock band Mt. Doubt, Edinburgh-based dream pop quartet Skjør and indie rockers Vistas.

The event has been masterminded by the good folks at Tees Music Alliance and The Kids Are Solid Gold. Andy Carr from TKASG hopes that the region’s close relationship with our friends in the north can help to bolster our own music scene. “We already have exceptionally strong ties with the Scottish music scene and this event will undoubtedly help to strengthen them even further [as] we are looking to develop networking opportunities for the next generation of exciting Teesside and Scottish acts.”

It’s an exciting and strong line-up for the inaugural event, and based on the promoters’ past pedigree one or more of these bands are likely to be massive by this time next year. Get on it.
