Here Comes the Summer!
Punk rock band The Undertones to headline Corbridge Festival in 2015.
Northumberland’s biggest family friendly music festival is returning to Tynedale Park on Sat 11th July 2015 for its landmark 5th Birthday. Legendary punk rock band The Undertones will be headlining this celebratory year.
The Londonderry band – famed for hits such as Teenage Kicks, Jimmy Jimmy, Here Comes the Summer and My Perfect Cousin – will take to the main stage for the climax of this magical event.
Formed in 1975 the Undertones released thirteen singles and four albums, including the anthem ‘Teenage Kicks’, which was often cited by John Peel as his favourite song of all time, and went on to become the band’s signature track. The Undertones have more recently released two albums and perform regularly at music festivals around the world. In a 2000 poll by Q magazine, The Undertones debut LP came in the top 100 of Greatest British Albums of all times.
Also taking to the main stage are Miles and Erica of The Wonder Stuff who’ll be performing many of the Wonder Stuffs well known tracks (Wonder Stuff tracks include ‘Welcome to the Cheap Seats and Size of a Cow) as well as some of their more recent material. Joining them on the main stage is dance sensation Angie Brown from Bizarre Inc, singing anthems such as I’m Gonna Get You (Baby), Took my Love and Playing with knives The Seahorses front man Chris Helme will make a welcome return to Corbridge after wowing the crowds on the acoustic stage in 2014. Other bands include, The Talks, The Jar Family, Bloxed Beats (beat boxers), The Gatecrashers, Riverain, Charlie Dancer and more. Headlining the acoustic stage is the increasingly popular Ourselves and Us who got together whilst studying music at the Sage Gateshead and who frequently perform at that venue. Joining them on the acoustic stage are Lost in Paradise, 3 at Sea, JustSO, Kobadelta, Jinski, Amy Ridley, Silent Houses, Alex Dobson and more to be confirmed. Pipe Riot the Punk Poet from Ovingham will also make a short appearance and Steffen Peddie (from sitcom Hebburn) will once again compere the Main Stage in his hilarious and up beat way.
Festival Director Cheryl Durkin says ‘The aim at Corbridge Festival is to create a line-up of music that combines iconic headliners with the best of up and coming bands from across the Region (and beyond), getting a mix of music which appeals to young and old. This year will see our strongest line-up to date’.
Of course Corbridge Festival is about more than the music. It’s a short break in the country where you can immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere, walk amongst theatrical characters, watch Professor Pumpernickel make science fun and magical, take part in music workshops, visit the Kids Zone, participate in crafty activities or simply browse some fascinating stalls. Then there’s the large choice of street food vendors with their culinary delights and a fine selection of real ales, ciders, and lagers, indulge yourself with a cocktail or glass of champagne or a Summer time glass of Pimms if that’s your tipple!
The venue for Corbridge Festival is compact, bijoux even, everything is within walking distance. The campsite parking is near to the campsite which itself is on the event grounds. Camping is available for 2 nights (at extra cost). Up to 5,000 people are expected in 2015 so be sure to get your tickets early.
