Following the announcement that the hotly-anticipated This is Tomorrow festival is returning to Newcastle for its third year in 2020, here is a rundown of both artists who have previously appeared at the festival, and those who are rumored to be appearing next summer.
Last summer’s This Is Tomorrow Festival brought several big names to Newcastle’s Exhibition Park
Headlined by Noel Gallagher, Stereophonics, and Foals, last summer’s This Is Tomorrow Festival brought several big names to Newcastle’s Exhibition Park. With over 30,000 people attending across the 3 day event, the festival lived up to its reputation for being one of the biggest events of the summer.
The festival will run on a bank holiday weekend, 22nd-24th May
Early-bird tickets have been on sale since the end of October, and the festival will run on a bank holiday weekend, 22nd-24th May. Tipped to bring ‘the most entertaining and diverse line-up yet’, hopes are high for the 2020 festival.
2019's festival saw a number of up-and-coming artists perform, from Editors to The Pale White, as well as iconic names, such as former Smiths guitarist turned soloist Johnny Marr, ensuring the festival catered to the tastes of all indie rock fans.
Other 2019 performers included Lewis Capaldi, The Vaccines and You Me At Six.
With last year’s reputation to live up to and plans already in motion for next year, organisers are confident tickets will sell out in advance.
In its first year in 2018, the festival saw performances from big names like Catfish & The Bottlemen, Everything Everything, and Brit Award Winner Sam Fender.
As one of the North East’s very own, Fender is surely a hot contender to return
As one of the North East’s very own, Fender is surely a hot contender to return. With his own tour dates in the Toon scheduled for December and April, will he be back in May?
No names have yet been confirmed, and the official line-up will be announced nearer the festival.
