Reimagined new music festival Generator Live is set to take place on Saturday 25th June, with a line-up filled to the brim with the best and brightest from the North-East. 

Built on the foundations laid by its predecessors Evolution Emerging and Tipping Point Live, the festival will take over Newcastle’s Boiler Shop to offer a platform for emerging local talent. There will also be an official after party at long running club WHQ as well as a whole host of free fringe events in the run up to the festival at grassroots venues, such as Head of Steam, Little Buildings, The Old Coal Yard, Cobalt Studios, Zerox, The Cluny and Cluny 2.

Already announced are Venus Grrrls, Sagaboi, bigfatbig, John Dole and Lovely Assistant. They will be joined by alt-pop storyteller Ruth Lyon, Newcastle rapper Kay Greyson, electropunk juggernaut Straight Girl, ethereal vocalist Jodie Nicholson and the critically acclaimed Kema Kay

Generator’s music activity and lead producer for the festival, Helen Walkinshaw adds… 
“Generator Live will be our overdue and revived festival, celebrating the North East  industry and showcasing a cross genre programme of rising talent. We’re excited to  share our plans for Generator Live, which have been shaped in response to audience,  artist and industry feedback. 

Our aims remain the same; Generator Live Festival and Conference will support and connect the North East music community with the wider industry to create more career pathways and fill the void of showcases for exclusively North East emerging talent through our platforms.” 

Full access to the festival, fringe events and afterparty is included in the ticket price of  £16.50 (including fees) with a festival only ticket (excluding the WHQ afterparty) priced at  £13.20 (including fees). Tickets are available via the Generator Live website
