THE North East’s biggest live music festival will return next summer for another weekend of sizzling music and entertainment.

Hardwick Live will take place over the weekend 17 and 18 August 2019 in the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel at Sedgefield, County Durham.

The full line up of artists taking part will be announced in due course, but organisers are working hard to ensure next year’s event will be the biggest and best to date.

“This year we moved to a two-day festival for the very first time and it proved to be a huge success,” said John Adamson, owner of Ramside Estates which runs Hardwick Live.

“We welcomed thousands of visitors over the two days who enjoyed fantastic live music along with a host of other entertainment, with everything from DJs to celebrity chefs.

“Now we want to build on this year’s success as we return for two days in 2019. It’s too early to give anything away yet as to who we’ll have performing, but music-lovers can rest assured we plan to pull out all the stops to provide a line up which won’t be beaten.”

This year’s event featured stars like Happy Mondays, Kaiser Chiefs, Shed Seven, Jake Shears, Vintage Trouble, Feeder and many more.
