This is the second edition of the festival, the first took place at Spillers Wharf. Its new home is Exhibition Park on Newcastle’s Town Moor. This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels in the area.
SSD Concerts have said the event will have a strong ethos of experimentation in defiance
of the norm, and there are plans to host alternative art exhibitions alongside a full weekend
of expansive and exhilarating live music.
Speaking about Foals announcement, SSD Concert’s Steve Davis:
When we said this will be biggest and most ambitious festival the North East has ever seen we meant it and we’re super excited about this second announcement.
Foals are one of the most forward-thinking and groundbreaking bands out there and the fact that they’ve been filling out arenas regularly for years now and are about to release their fifth album, makes them one of the UK’s most prolific outfits. They’re a perfect headliner for the Friday show.
They’ve come along way since they burst onto the scene over ten years ago now and we can’t wait to see the band at the peak of their powers at This is Tomorrow Festival.
