2018 is set to be another big year for Stockton Calling, with the first headliner announcement just made today, with Liverpool’s legendary The Lightning Seeds headlining ARC’s stage.

The 90s icons are household names through their inspired, captivating gift for pop music. Ian Broudie stands up as one of the best songwriters in recent times, and their collaboration with Baddiel & Skinner on Three Lions enshrined them in British pop history. Also providing two songs that soundtracked entire seasons of Goal Of The Month on Match Of The Day makes sure for many, they provided a musical backdrop to happy times. Not to mention Ian Broudie’s local link of providing music for the film Purely Belter which was set and filmed in and around Newcastle. 

More acts will be announced shortly and full line ups for each venue will be announced over the coming weeks.
