The equinox is certainly a magical time to celebrate nature; marking the death of summer and the birth of autumn. But if you’re not into the whole druid pagan sacrifice infused ritual thing then Equinox Gathering is a mighty fine substitute.

Making a return after two years for reasons well documented, Middleborough’s Westgarth Social Club will host a mini all-dayer on Saturday 18th September which will observe fantastical, experimental and truly ‘out there’ live music from across the North East. Expect raucous rage from the likes of The Likkor Men, shoegazy goodness from Parastatic, psych-space-rock-adelic grooves of Silver Trees, the synth drone of Nathalie Stern and vocal noise enthusiasts Noize Choir, among others.

There is truly something for everyone; those who not only deem themselves indifferent to the common zeitgeist and those who have grown tired of the mundane mainstream and want to visit the fringes of sound. There’s an opportunity to grab some arty bargains too, with art stalls featuring work by Slutmouth, Jade Lenehan Illustration, Molly Arnold and Psychedelegg, and once the sun goes down the aftershow keeps the party going at Disgraceland, with DJ sets that combine a cacophony of Afrobeat, electronica, space rock, psychedelic, ambient and the kitchen sink. A scintillating day of distinct oddities awaits you.
