Newcastle-based bedroom runge quartet The Timewasters are set to release their latest single, Dear Mr Government on Saturday 15th May. The track was written as a “breakup letter to the current government, for the way that they’ve handled many situations these past years they’ve been in power” and is a melodic, keys driven number with Lou Reed and Patti Smith vibes.

Here, the band tells us about their Tyne-based fantasy festival…

Our dream show would be a big show/festival thing, like Live Aid but in 4k.

It would take place at Newcastle Quayside sometime in August, but what would we call this show? Tynewaster Festival.

As you enter the festival you will be greeted with an abundance of all you can eat foods and drink, we’re talking sausage rolls, candy floss, lemonade, all the good stuff!

There would be a merch stand where you could get the softest hoodies and the coolest looking t-shirts around.  And the festival area would be decorated with lots of fairy lights, and there’d be a bunch of 80s style photo-booths where you could take photos with your mates

We’d be performing alongside the biggest North Eastern musicians and bands, (*cough* Sam Fender and Little Comets *cough*) along with some oldie goldies (like The Animals) 

But of course we’d be headlining (how could we not). And the artists would be introduced by Abigail Thorn (from Philosophy Tube) and she would present the entire day on TV. 

 But where’s the stage? Where are people going to perform? On the River Tyne. 

A huge floating platform on the Tyne would be where we perform, with big flashy lights and the stage would be decorated with loads of vines to keep the vibes good.

There would be several areas where people could stand and see the festival, some on the Quayside and banks of the River Tyne, and then people could get the best seats in the house if they could view the concert from the Baltic museum 

Oh, also the entire festival would be sponsored by Greggs, therefore making it the best festival on the planet.
