Joe Frankland, Artist Development Manager at Generator said, "Evolution Emerging is always the highlight of the North East gig calendar. We were blown away by the number of submissions we had this year and felt we just had to make our event bigger and better. So we’ll also be taking over Blast Studios, Heart Attack & Vine and Blank Studios so we can put on over 40 artists across 9 venues.

"For Evolution Emerging have played a part in the success of North East artists nationally means a lot to us so we're thrilled to be inviting artists from previous events to headline this year's event. And with an Aftershow until 3AM, we can't wait to cram so much talent into one free event."
