Catfish And The Bottlemen have been revealed as the headliner of a new music festival, This is Tomorrow, set to launch on the banks of the River Tyne on Friday 25th May 2018.

Taking place next to Spillers on Newcastle’s Quayside, the revered band will play alongside North East indie stalwarts Little Comets, the Newcastle born singer-songwriter sensation and BBC Sound of 2018 artist, Sam Fender as well as innovative alt-pop band Everything Everything.

All stemming from the vision of Richard Hamilton, and his boundary pushing ideas, this brand new music festival is planting it’s roots in Newcastle with an ethos of experimentation, daring and down right defiance of the norm.

To honour the great, late, artist Richard Hamilton, who lectured in fine art at Newcastle University and moulded the mind of great Geordie music hero Brian Ferry, the Festival finds it’s name from the 1956 Art Exhibition This Is Tomorrow at Whitechapel Gallery.

With more bands to be announced, this is certainly a date to mark in the diary.

 

Tickets will go on general sale this Friday 15th December at 10 am and can be purchased here.
