RISE has dominated the alt. scene in Newcastle every Saturday since 2016, but that wasn’t enough for the team behind the iconic club night. Get ready to take things to the next level with the introduction of an all-new festival, RISEFEST. With a title that demands to be written in all capitals, expect things to get loud and sweaty at Northumbria Students’ Union on Saturday 10th September.

Crowd-pullers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Boston Manor, Vukovi, As December Falls, Modern Error and Creeper have already been added to the debut roster, making the fifty quid ticket price to see so many faves at once well worth the investment. Not forgetting their locale, RISEFEST have made sure to include North East music scene staples, including future metal legends Rituals and alt. rockers Motherland (RISE veterans may even recognise DJ Dave Hodgkiss on guitar for the latter).

With more artists set to be announced across the event’s two stages, a kick off time of 10am, and on-site catering to take you all the way through to the final headline acts, you can enjoy Newcastle’s own mini-festival without the hefty price tag, camping and other general messiness. If an all day alt. festival still doesn’t sound like enough to you, then there’s always the original RISE following straight after to satisfy all your after party needs. 

RISEFEST takes place at Northumbria University Students’ Union on Saturday 10th September.
