Evolution Emerging Festival 2016 to showcase a wealth of new talent from the North East
Words: Seela Dougan
Taking place on May 28, the Evolution Emerging Festival is set to show off some of its best emerging talent with over 40 artists playing at ten different venues across the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle.
Cattle and Cane and Kingsley Chapman and The Murder are among the more established names, along with fast-rising new bands such as Plaza, TRASH, EAT, Seeing Hands and Joy Atlas.
Bob Allan, Generator’s artist development manager, said: ‘Following another sold out year we’re really excited to be heading into our eighth Evolution Emerging festival, the event continues to showcase the best new artists from the North East alongside some of our favourites from around the UK. The growth of this event is testament to the talent that thrives in our region and the appetite of festival goers to discover the best we have to offer.
‘We’re really excited to once again fill the Ouseburn Valley with more than 40 new artists and continue to shine a national spotlight on the abundance of emerging talent that graces our stage each year. See you in the valley!”
Tickets, priced at £8 in advance and provide entry to the day event as well as the after-party, are available now.
