Hit The North Festival

All go for north-east's largest inner-city festival

Now into its third year, Hit The North takes places across 12 venues around Newcastle city centre from 3-5 May 2019.

With the main festival taking place on the Sunday, 'opening parties' on the Friday are ticketed separately and only valid with a Hit The North wristband.

The Friday-night parties see Metronomy playing at the Boiler Shop, with Sundara Karma at the O2 Academy and The Futureheads at the Riverside.

Featuring a line-up packed full of exciting new artists, the north-east's largest inner-city festival returns on the Sunday with its most diverse and ambitious line-up to date, with confirmed acts including Jake Bugg, Tom Grennan, Shame, The Academic, Blaenavon, Catherine Mcgrath, Lauren Aquilina, Ten Tonnes, The Blinders, The Mouse Outfit, Dylan Cartlidge, The Mysterines, Fuzzy Sun, and Sheafs, with more bands to be announced.

Taking place across a collection of Newcastle’s most celebrated venues and alternative spaces, the festival will see Bugg – one of the UK’s most prolific and celebrated singer-songwriters of recent times – make a welcome return to Tyneside as a headline act, where he is joined by one of 2018’s biggest breakthrough artists, Grennan, who took the festival circuit by storm last summer.
