Middlesbrough’s metropolitan music festival, Twisterella, have unveiled the first wave of artists for their event which takes place on Saturday 14th October. Avant-garde prog poppers Dutch Uncles lead the charge, with other artists also announced so far including Opus Kink, Arxx, Ciel, Avalanche Party, Me Lost Me, Adult DVD, Cathy Jain, Cherym, Colour TV, Eyeconic, Hier, Humour, Jen Dixon, Juice Pops, Reignmaker, The Joy Hotel and Weathership.

The award-winning festival has been consistantly praised for its forward-thinking approach, and puts exciting emerging music at the forefront of its programming. Expect to see talent on a local, national and international level, performing at venues across the town.

Henry Carden, co-promotor of Twisterella alongside The Kids Are Solid Gold’s Andy Carr, said of the line-up announced so far: “We’re delighted to announce Dutch Uncles as one of this year’s headliners. We’ve been fans of them for a while now, and their new album True Entertainment is an absolute triumph. Organising a multi-venue music festival in a town with very few music venues is a challenge, but we’re proud to be bringing such an amazing line-up to our town this October and grateful for the continued support of Teesside University SU and our other partner venues.”

As well as all the live music on offer, Twisterella also features its own (Un)Conference; a vital, inclusive forum which brings key figures from across the music industry together in Middlesbrough to share their expertise, offering advice and feedback to Teesside’s next exciting generation of artists.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £22.50 + bf.
