HEIDI CURTIS


Back on home turf is singer/songwriter Heidi Curtis. Previously performed with the likes of Sam Fender, Curtis has begun to establish herself amongst the scene with her passionately catchy songs.

Attendees can expect the young Newcastle-based artist's talent to blossom on stage through the raw and symphonic sounds as Curtis delivers yet another astounding appearance.









SECOND THOUGHTS


Second Thoughts are also headlining, and an act to watch out for! This band has a rather unique approach: enhancing the message of their songs with that British sound we’re all familiar with, whilst carrying the vibrance of the sun through the sound of organic instrumentation. You couldn’t get an easier easy-listening experience if you tried!


TOP TRACKS: PARACHUTE, NEW ZEALAND, NICOTINE STAINS


JANGO FLASH


Heartfelt, yet anarchically energetic, is the assertive attitude of Jango Flash.

The Newcastle-based Alt-Rock band are expected to bring a sublime yet chaotic fusion of instrumentation and lyricism, expressing societal issues through a buzz that attendees are likely to relate to.


TOP TRACKS: OVER SUPPLY, MY MERCEDES, PERSEID 45



FEVA


Yet another local band, FEVA’s alternative sound will surely resonate from the soundsystem, right to the ground below the crowd's feet. Overpowering vocals, riveting riffs and pounding percussion are the closest you’ll get to depicting their sound- something you can only experience!


TOP TRACKS: BLIND, UNEASY, I WANNA KNOW



MOTEL CARNATION


North East Psychedelic-Indie-Electro/Rock outfit Motel Carnation return with their progressive harmonious and melodic elements, depicting common concepts of introspective viewpoints; working to deliver an exceptionally sonically cohesive performance, perfect for those looking for more of a consistent vibe.

MIDLIGHT


If you’re looking for something a bit more laid-back, four-man Brighton band Midlight are definitely it!


A custom, idiomatically, beguiling sound, reminiscent to that of RadioHead and Coldplay, Midlight carry a unique vivacity, straying from many alternative-rock bands that attempt to capture this late 90s/00s vibe.


TOP TRACKS: PANDEMONIUM, EMERGENCY SONG, HOME



BENJAMIN FITZGERALD


Finally, bringing neo-classical compositions to the table is Benjamin Fitzgerald. Through combining elements of classical music and trance, attendees can expect a stupendous, awe-inspiring performance with non-stop authentic creativity from all aspects.
