SATURDAY 14 JULY - SEABURN RECREATION PARK - ZONE D SEAFRONT - 12NOON - 8.30PM.
One of the North East’s leading music festivals is joining forces with the Tall Ships Races Sunderland 2018.
Stars such as Little Comets and the world famous Royal Northern Sinfonia will be among a packed line up performing across three stages.
Also taking to the main stage will be up and coming North East band The Pale White along with festival favourites Smoove & Turrell.
There will also be sets from punk rock band Martha, from Durham and folk band The Cornshed Sisters, alongside shows from bands as far afield as Norway and New Orleans.
The all-female Shake Em Up jazz band will bring traditional Louisiana style jazz to the main stage, while Norwegian indie band Beezewax – who first formed 20 years ago – will perform tracks from their most recent EP, Out of the Window.
Swedish YouTube sensation Gunhild Carling – famous for playing three trumpets at the same time – will be making an appearance with her band, bringing some jazz standards along with some unlikely pop classics.
For younger festival goers there will be a vast range of craft and activity sessions along with singing, songwriting, glockenspiel and recorder workshops, while, for older visitors, the acclaimed Wylam Brewery, Newcastle, will be running a bar throughout the event and there will be food concessions.
