Cllr Eddie Darke, cabinet member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism said, "The Sunday concert is always a popular event with families and this line-up will sound amazing in the stunning setting of Tynemouth Priory and Castle. We’re also delighted to announce the artists who will play special one-off shows at the Playhouse Whitley Bay, which are also sure to draw in the crowds."

In addition to live music,  Mouth of the Tyne Festival celebrates the performing arts and encourages family participation.

Tourism & Events manager for North Tyneside Pete Warne added, "It’ll be a bustling weekend with interactive family activities on the platform of the recently restored Victorian Tynemouth Station and the chance to take a surf lesson just a stone’s throw from the festival site with Tynemouth Surf Co. This year’s parade will see hundreds of local school children and parents in colourful costumes belting out world music rhythms. Of course, the opportunity to just relax on Blue Flag-winning King Edward’s Bay in the shadow of Tynemouth Priory and Castle and breathe it all in is a bonus too."
