Music festival fans rejoice! The ninth instalment of Stockton’s multi-venue mega festival, Stockton Calling, will be taking place on Saturday 31st March 2018.

Brought to music lovers by the good bods at ARC, Tees Music Alliance and Ku Bar, Stockton Calling sees nine venues in the Teesside town full to the brim with bands and happy punters. Previous events have seen indie megastars like Reverend & The Makers and The Ordinary Boys rub shoulders with innovative music makers like Public Service Broadcasting and Clinic, and local heroes including Little Comets, Richard Dawson and Kingsley Chapman & The Murder among many others. The line-up is always varied and exciting, with a wide variety of tastes catered for.

Pop up stages will supplement the larger venues, which include ARC, Storytellers, Ku, The Georgian Theatre and The Green Room, with line-ups and headliners due to be announced over the coming weeks.

Paul Burns, CEO of Tees Music Alliance, teases 2018’s offering: “It sounds clichéd to say that Stockton Calling goes from strength to strength, but it really does – we work with an increasingly talented bunch of bands, crews, venues and promoters; and the festival benefits all the more from this. The 2018 line-up is already looking amazing; loyal fans of Stockton Calling – plus those members of the audience attending for the first time – will have their socks knocked off!”

The event is a regular sell-out, so we advise you to jump on the early bird ticket offer of £18.50 before prices go up on 1st January. Tickets are available from ARC’s box office on 01642 525199 or Georgian Theatre box office on 01642 606525 or online at and
