The Sunderland based event will also be moving to a city centre location (Mowbray Park) and is being brought forward in the calendar, from their normal September time slot, right to the middle of the summer, with Split 2014 happening on the weekend of August 9 and 10.
Ross Millard, who programmes the music at Split spoke about the three headliners. First up, Saturday’s main act: “Dizzee Rascal is a British institution, a household name, with countless hits and who has fans across the genres.”
He them moved onto Sunday’s headliners: “It’s fantastic to have Maximo Park, a North East based band, as a main stage Sunday headliner. They have a big back catalogue of singalong hits, perfect way to end the festival. We’ve been courting The Cribs for quite a few years and we’re made up to get them to Sunderland. They are raw, exciting and unpredictable, and again they have a lot of releases to draw a festival set list from.”
