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.”
