Reliably informed

We’re pleased to once again be contributing to the fantastic Stockton Calling festival, taking place across Stockton on Saturday 4th April. The multi-venue festival is the model of a well-run and great value festival, featuring a huge range of artists across all genres.

Line-ups are still being worked on, but we can exclusively reveal the artists playing the NARC. stage at The Green Room. Birmingham’s Misty’s Big Adventure bring their multi-limbed fusion of jazz, pop, punk, 2-tone psychedelia and everything in between to headline the stage. The band consistently put in an amazing live performance, this will be one not to miss! Joining them are Kingsley Chapman & The Murder, who have thrilled fans so far with a much-anticipated return; Durham indie punks Martha; Teesside blues rockers Cellar Door; the upfront joyous pop of Peculiar Disco Moves; post-hardcore rockers Shades; synth popsters Fractions; sludgy noise rock from Tissue Culture and the superb songwriting talents of Middlesbrough’s James Kruman.

A handful of other stages have also been announced. HM Bark Endeavour’s stage (run by Pay For The Piano) features Lilliput, Gallery Circus, Seafret, Broken Broadcast, High Tide 15:47, Be Quiet Shout Loud and Joe Ramsey. Clue Records take over The Sun Inn with their line-up featuring NARCS (no relation!), Forever Cult, Mouses, Girl Sweat, Ilser, Goy Boy McIlroy and Bi:Lingual; while ARC have so far confirmed The Ordinary Boys and Neville Staple Band; Ku Bar play host to Pigeon Detectives and Nouvelle Musique’s stage at The Vault welcomes Nigel R Clark.

With many more acts to be announced over the coming weeks, we think you’ll agree the line-up so far is pretty damn fine. Grab your tickets now, it’s guaranteed to be another sell out!

Stockton Calling takes place in various locations in Stockton on Saturday 4th April. Tickets cost £15 and are available online or in person at ARC Box Office, Green Dragon Studios and The Storytellers.
