Ross Millard, who curates the event, said, "We've had a lot of people request the booking of Simon & Oscar of Ocean Colour Scene for this year's event. I think they'll bring some big, festival singalongs to Split this summer. Simon's voice is one of the most recognisable in modern music, so it's great that he'll be belting out the hits across Mowbray Park in August. It's also great to get Tom Vek up to Sunderland for Split - our audience appreciate artists like Tom who have retained a DIY ethic. Off the back of his new album I'm looking forward to seeing a great show. Stage 2 is going to be seriously hard-rocking at Split this year!"
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.
