Ross Millard, who curates the event, said, "We're delighted to unveil the additions of The Happy Mondays, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Frankie & The Heartstrings, Smoove and Turrell and all the other bands too and we really feel like the atmosphere in Mowbray Park will be positive and fit for a top-notch inner-city boutique music festival. Throw in all the exciting up and coming names on Stages 2 and 3 and it starts to look like the emerging British music scene is descending on Sunderland for two days of exciting wall to wall rock n roll action. I can't wait!"
Tickets are on sale priced at £55 for a weekend ticket, and £33 for a day ticket.
This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.
