Hit the North festival will be back in Newcastle in May 2019 with an exciting selection of acts, which include Jake Bugg, Tom Grennan and The Blinders to name a few.

Jake Bugg joins previous Hit The North headliners such as The Horrors, Peace and Rat Boy and will perform with fellow headliner, Tom Grennan. Grennan, a product of Insanity Records is one of the UK’s brightest singer-songwriter talents right now.

Northerners on the bill include Liverpool’s The Mysterines, Fuzzy Sun from Stockport, Sheafs from Sheffield and The Indigo Project from Leeds. Glasgow’s burgeoning music scene will also be proudly represented thanks to The Dunts and ALLIGATOR.

Hit the North’s organisers have promised that yet more great acts and details of the full weekend will be announced in the coming weeks and have encouraged music fans in the region to stay tuned for further updates including new venues and one-off special events during the May Bank Holiday Weekend.

Hit the North Festival Organiser, Steve Davis, comments: “The last Hit the North was a huge success from our point of view, all artists, venues and most importantly, the customers loved it. It was great to see music fans running around the City Centre heading freely in and out of venues and we’re delighted it will make a return in 2018.

We’ve got big hopes for this year’s gathering and we’re confident there’ll be something for all new music fans to get their teeth into. It’s going to be some festival and is not to be missed. Stay tuned more updates and announcements.”

So far Hit The North festival’s line-up looks like this:

Jake Bugg / Tom Grennan / The Blinders / Catherine McGrath / Blaenavon / Dylan Cartlidge

Hit the North 2019 tickets are on sale now for the main event priced at £37.50 (£41.25 with booking fee).
