We Are Family music festival is set to return to Hartlepool Marina on Saturday 10th September. It’ll celebrate and showcase some of the most talented musicians we have in the North East. With last year a huge, sell-out success, this year is set to follow in those footsteps to give a stage to our region’s vibrant music scene.

The festival will again be curated and produced by Hartlepool collective The Jar Family and will feature performances from their pick of the greatest musicians from the area. With over 16 artists showcased, there’s real treats in the shape of Sunderland’s rootsy psych pop outfit Hyde & Beast, alongside hailed indie quartet Kingsley Chapman & The Murder and Hartlepool heroes The Jar Family themselves. Newcastle favorites Little Comets will headline the main stage with Teeside’s Cattle & Cane topping the bill on the outdoor stage completing a superb lineup of emerging talent and special guests.

The other bands to look out for are Plaza, Avalanche Party, Parastatic, SerinetteSeafret, Slug, Lilliput, MousesSamantha DurnanSocial Room and James Leonard Hewitson Band. Hosted at Jacksons Landing, a 5,000 capacity venue which was brought back to life at last years event following a decade of disuse, We Are Family will again regenerate and transform the superbly located facility into a top class event complex.

We Are Family Festival takes place at Hartlepool Marina on Saturday 10th September.
