Hit the north for an inner-city music festival

Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Head northwards this spring as a barrage of musical acts descends on Newcastle upon Tyne’s city centre in one of the newest emerging musical events in North East England.

See Jake Bugg, Tom Grennan and Shame headline Hit The North 2019, an inner-city festival showcasing over 100 live acts across 14 of Newcastle's venues.

A celebration of emerging bands and musicians (with a particular focus on talent from the north of England), Hit The North is quickly becoming one of Newcastle's major events. Indie rock, acoustic folk and R&B fans are bound to find something they already love on the bill, and with plenty of new bands and artists performing throughout the day, you're bound to find something new to love too.

Hit The North 2019 takes place on Sunday 5 May, and tickets are available now.
