Boro festival Make A Scene was a staple from its debut in 2010 as a day (or two) pop-punk aficionados descended on Teesside to enjoy the best in upcoming alternative talent. Anyone who attended those fabled shows had the chance to enjoy chart-toppers and today’s big names like Don Broco, Bury Tomorrow, and Boston Manor all before they were cool.

It looks like it’s time for a re-emergence from the team, with the Make A Scene: Summer Jam event taking place at Play Brew Co in Middlesbrough on Saturday 2nd July. With a hefty line-up of 10 artists representing the next generation of pop-punk and emo, it’s the perfect opportunity to get with the in-crowd before anyone else. Things get a little heavy with metalcore band Your Misery, while Wearsiders noyou fly the flag for scuzzy pop rock; Teesside heavy rockers Motherland join the bill alongside nostalgic riff-monsters Set Your Sights and headliners Beauty School bring emo-tinged pop-punk nostalgia to their slot, which is well worth a peep ahead of their debut record’s release this Autumn. Add to all of this Make A Scene’s range of market vendors featuring local brands including Have No Regrets, Reap Jiu-Jitsu and Shy Bairn Stitches, food stalls and refreshments provided by hosts Play Brew Co., it’s gonna be one jam-packed day!
