Hit the North Festival reveals second wave of acts

In what is shaping up to be the strongest Hit the North Festival yet, today its organisers have announced Shame, The Academic, The Lake Poets, SOAK and Columbia Records’ music duo Seafret have been added to the line-up.

The event, which will already boast headlining performances from the likes of Jake Bugg and Tom Grennan, will take place on Sunday 5th May across some of Newcastle’s most celebrated venues with special events occurring throughout the early May bank holiday.

Building on the success of the last two years, the North East’s largest inner city live music event is confident that the new additions to the billing will make this the biggest and most diverse gathering to date.

“There’s no doubt that Hit the North Festival is back with its best line-up this year and we know fans of Shame and The Lake Poets will be delighted that they’re heading to Newcastle in May,” says Hit the North Festival organiser, Steve Davis.

“Last year’s event was amazing but this is a step up for sure. We’re building a reputation as one of the UK’s leading city-centre festivals and we can’t wait to see all of these amazing bands in action.”
