This summer, North East Live sold out the Sunderland Stadium of Light event. Next year it returns for a full day (and night!) of fun on Sunday 22nd June. In addition to the high demand, two extra dates have been added across other UK cities – East Coast Live at Ipswich Chantry Park on Saturday 28th June and South West Live at Weston-super-Mare Beach on Sunday 29th June.
"We are delighted to be welcoming South West Live to Weston Beach in June. We have a great track record of hosting major music events in Weston, and are looking forward to working with AEG Live to make this a fantastic event in the best of settings." Cllr Felicity Baker, Executive member for tourism at North Somerset Council.
With a stellar line up and spread across UK cities – this is an event for all pop music fans to be putting in their calendars. The day will include performances from the previously mentioned artists along with other fun news to be announced.
Katy B who has recently topped the UK charts says ‘I’m looking forward to playing such huge outdoor shows. This will definitely be a summer highlight for me.’ Girl group, Neon Jungle, echoed Katy with ‘We’re so excited to play this festival as we get to perform on the same stage as some of our favourite artists!’
New band Rixton have been causing a stir over the past few months and these shows will be their largest and first outdoor shows to date. They said, “We can’t believe we are playing this festival! It’s going to be the biggest crowd we’ll have performed to, we can’t wait to see all your faces!”
