We’re thrilled to be joining the Stockton Calling team again this year for their 10th anniversary celebrations. Taking place across Stockton on Saturday 20th April, with nine venues peddling some of the best new and established bands from around the UK, it’s certain to be another sell out. Bands announced to perform so far include the likes of The Futureheads, Plastic Mermaids, Avalanche Party, Naked Six, Reverend & The Makers and many more, with further announcements to come over the coming weeks.

Our stage at The Green Room, as always, focuses on local talent and we’ve got a doozy of a line-up for you! Kicking things off early with their fun and feisty sound are GGAllan Partridge, whose punk-fuelled attitude starts the day with noisy intent; Salsola bring their groove-laden pop rock to the stage; while Billingham’s Eddie & The Valkyries offer up their intriguing Northern folk pop. Having quietly released a stunning debut album at the back end of last year, Spell Token – aka Josh Ingledew and chums – will delight with their multi-layered quirky orchestral folk pop, which is guaranteed to be a must-see performance. Hartlepool’s Leopard Rays will raise the roof with their catchy alt. rock; there’s expansive folk opera courtesy of Nel Unlit and super-fun garage rock sounds from Whitby’s Ten Foot Tom & The Leprosy Crooks.

Things get raucous as the night draws on, with our sub-headliners Ceiling Demons guaranteed to bring a big crowd; Richmond’s alt. hip-hop band will provide an emotive and engaging live set. Topping the bill are another band lauded for their live show, Middlesbrough’s favourite party starters Be Quiet. Shout Loud!, whose inventive disco rock will have what’s sure to be packed room dancing their hearts out. See you down the front!
