Organisers of the largest free family festival in the region have announced further details of the entertainment on offer which will bring Blyth a full day of quality music and family entertainment.
The Northumberland Live Festival at Blyth on June 24th will see The Undertones headline playing timeless classics including; ‘Here Comes the Summer’, ‘Jimmy Jimmy’, “My Perfect Cousin” and the power pop anthem “Teenage Kicks.”
Main support to The Undertones will be new wave power pop band, Cryssis. Singer and guitarist Dick York will be teaming up with his old drummer friend Vom Ritchie from German stadium rockers, Die Toten Hosen. The band has a strong fan base in Germany, including in Blyth’s twinned town of Solingen. It is hoped that next year, Northumberland Live will send a local band to perform at the Solingen Music Festival to further seal musical links between the two towns.
First of the local artists and bands to be announced in the line up is talented Ashington singer song writer Peesh. Peesh who is the lead singer in both Logoz and Junkster will perform an acoustic set. More musical guests will be announced soon. The festival’s media partner is Metro Radio.
As well as the musical attractions, the Festival will host street theatre, superb food from the counties finest food supppliers, displays of military vehicles, Jessie the Bubbleolgist who is back by popular demand and a family activity area which will keep all of the family entertained.
Event Organiser Mel Jackson from Jigsaw Event Management said.” The festival is really coming together now and we are looking forward to putting Blyth on the map for providing a fantastic family festival There’s going to be something for everyone and thanks to Blyth Town Council, the event is completely free to the public.”
