The line-up for the second Songs From Northern Britain, the next generation music festival set across three stages on Saturday 12th May at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre and Green Room, will once again focus on showcasing emerging acts from both Teesside and Scotland.

The all-day event will be headlined by Tees band of the moment Cape Cub, who recently contributed an exclusive acoustic version of the band’s track Flowers to NARC.’s twelfth birthday compilation. Joining them on the Teesside half of the bill will be NME courting Llovers, Hartlepool’s Para Alta and bluesy songwriter Eve Conway, with further performances from punk scamps Bruto, songwriter Heather Story, the honeyed tones of James Kruman, lo-fi folk from Dressed Like Wolves, singer-songwriter Joe Ramsey, disco rockers Be Quiet Shout Loud!, MC Endem and Danny Devon.

Amongst the Scottish contingent are widely-tipped Glasgow post-punkers The Ninth Wave, who are still riding high off the back of last year’s debut Reformation EP. They’ll be joined by electronica artist Onr., electro-punker Lucia, punk quartet The Dunts, Dundee’s experimental lo-fi duo St.Martiins and alt. folk songwriter Zoe Graham

Organiser Andy Carr of The Kids Are Solid Gold will also be joined on the day by BBC6 Music’s veteran tastemaker Vic Galloway, known for his passionate support of grass roots music, who will once again introduce the artists and offer informal advice and support.
