Charlie Dancer, the Talent Development Manager for Generator who run the festival commented on the announcement:
“We're all hugely excited to be bringing a whole host of fantastic artists to Evolution Emerging this year, in what is, the most diverse and comprehensive line-up to date.
“Aside from our festival headliners The Pale White, Cape Cub & Martha, we’ve made a concerted effort this year to cover more ground than ever with more slots, an eclectic spread of genres and more bands from right across the region.
“Some of the fantastic additions include folksy energetic Northumberland troupe Dansi, Teesside alt-punks Bruto, chaotic Newcastle rap trio RoninClan, and Sunderland new disco get-up Vandebilt.
“Amongst these new additions, we will see the return of two of the North-East’s most active mc’s, ZICO MC & Leddie MC, the incredible vocal powers of IMOGEN and festival debut of R&B artist Jamiliah plus Newcastle Jazz Trio Archipelago.
“It’s our 10th year with more acts performing, more variety, and a larger capacity than ever before. For anyone seeking a true taste of what the North-East has to offer, there is no other event like it this year!”
Early bird tickets are on sale, priced at £10 until Wednesday 28th March.
