The Amazons, Dream Wife and Bloxx are among the latest names for Hit The North

The Amazons, Dream Wife and Bloxx are among a batch of new names for Hit The North.

Also new to the bill today, are The Wytches, Chappaqua Wrestling, Do Nothing, Grace Carter, SPINN, The Mysterines and The Wha.

The Newcastle all-dayer will take place on Sunday 3rd May, with Fickle Friends, The Magic Gang, DMA's, Working Men’s Club, Lauran Hibberd, Marsicans, Roxy Girls, Stereo Honey, Talk Show and Walt Disco playing, too.

Speaking about the upcoming 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 showcases Newcastle’s richness as a musical city in terms of its venues and home-grown artists.

"Hit The North returns 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.”
