After unveiling the first wave of acts at October’s second-ever Twisterella Festival in Middlesbrough, promoters Pay For The Piano and The Kids Are Solid have announced the final acts to be playing at the massive one day event. It had already been confirmed that the likes of Hyde & Beast, SLUG, Kingsley Chapman and the Murder, Fickle Friends, Allusondrugs, Beach Baby and Model Aeroplanes would be playing at venues across the town and now the line up for Saturday 10th October has been completed by more big names from near and afar.

Joining the bill are hotly tipped buzz band Spring King, who were recently chosen by Zane Lowe to launch Apple’s Beats 1 radio station. The band are currently unsigned but their infectious indie will no doubt mean that this might be one of the last times you can catch them in an intimate environment. The artist formerly known as Beth Jeans Houghton, Du Blonde, will be performing tracks from her acclaimed new album Welcome Back To Milk, while soulful Hartlepool native Dan Cook will be returning to the region after a successful tour with George Ezra and the hotly-tipped Misty Miller will also be appearing. Sheffield rock’n’rollers RedFaces have also been added to the bill after successfully bidding to play on the BBC Introducing stages at T In The Park and Leeds Festival.

Festival co-director Andy Carr said:  “The three most shared acts on the BBC’s online coverage of Glastonbury have all played either a Kids Are Solid Gold or Pay For The Piano show in Middlesbrough over the past couple of years. We’re confident that Twisterella is the best place to see the next Wolf Alice, the new Catfish & The Bottlemen or the future James Bay. A number of acts from last year’s line-up, such as Prides, Eliza and the Bear and Jake Isaac, have already gone on to bigger and better things. Twisterella really is a chance to see tomorrow’s acts, today.”

Having added to their already impressive line up, the team behind Twisterella have ensured that this year’s event is one of the best one-day festivals for catching the best in rising local and national talent.

Twisterella Festival takes place at various locations across Middlesbrough on Saturday 10th October. Tickets are on sale now.
