With bands like Rascalton, Avalanche Party and Cape Cub performing at previous years’ events, the next instalment of TMA and The Kids Are Solid Gold’s Songs From Northern Britain festival was always going to be a highly anticipated one.

Taking place at The Georgian Theatre on Saturday 18th May, the festival aims to bring the best up and coming acts from the North East and Scotland together for a day long musical celebration. This year’s headliners are Scottish indie rockers The Snuts. “We’re really looking forward to coming back to Stockton, it’s one of the few places south of the border that understand us,” said band’s frontman, Jack Cochrane. “We’ve always had a warm reception playing in the North East of England, it’s somewhere we’re looking to improve our performances. On our last tour when we played in Newcastle, we had the room singing back to us; being in a band can be hard work and most of it is quite miserable and gruelling, but moments like those are what keep you motivated.”

The rest of the line-up is pretty great too, expect to see sets from Hartlepool favourites Para Alta; Glaswegian electro pop star Carla J Easton; alt. indie band The Yada Yada Yadas; art popsters The Vegan Leather; plus there’s rap from Ronin Clan; indie rock courtesy of Fever Days; Glaswegian indie popsters Wojtek The Bear; electro pop quartet LaKyoto; multi-instrumentalist Micah Erenberg; Leeds upstarts Uncle Buzzard; swoonsome indie folk from Mt. Misery; Teesside rapper Shakk; punk ‘n’ roll from The Shakin’ Nightmares; songwriter Charlotte Grayson and electro rockers Lost State of Dance. All that for merely £15. Bargain!
