Fickle Friends, The Magic Gang, DMA's and Working Men’s Club are all playing Hit The North 2020.
The Newcastle all-dayer will take place on Sunday 3rd May, with newcomers Lauran Hibberd, Marsicans, Roxy Girls, Stereo Honey, Talk Show and Walt Disco also playing.
Festival Director Steve Davis says: "It feels great to be back! In a region where continuous cuts are being made to cultural projects, Hit The North is a vital platform for connecting emerging acts with new music fans, and also showcases Newcastle’s richness as a musical city in terms of its venues and home-grown artists.
"Hit The North will return in 2020 and we hope the festival will continue to boost the profile of Newcastle and the wider North East region as a vibrant hub for new music."
Tickets for Hit The North 2020 will go on sale from 9am on Wednesday, 20th November.
