Embrace added to Newcastle’s This Is Tomorrow Festival bill

In yet another wave of major announcements for this year’s eagerly anticipated This is Tomorrow Festival, organisers have today confirmed that UK indie icons Embrace will be heading to Tyneside to perform as part of the event.

Embrace, famous for songs such as ‘Gravity’, ‘All You Good People’ and ‘Come back to what you know’, are currently celebrating the 21st anniversary of their debut album, The Good Will Out, with a major UK tour and will perform at This is Tomorrow on Sunday 26th May, the day that Stereophonics, Johnny Marr and Lewis Capaldi are also in town.

And, in a bid to push the boundaries at this year’s festival – which is set to take place across three days from Friday 24th May to Sunday 26th May on Newcastle’s Exhibition Park – SSD Concerts has also confirmed that it will embrace live music in more ways that one by hosting its first ever BBC Music Introducing in the North East Stage curated by BBC Music Introducing in the North East’s, Nick Roberts.

Also added to the This is Tomorrow line-up is Geordie indie legends, Detroit Social Club, who will be performing classics from their 2010 debut album ‘Existence’ on Saturday 25th May.
