Newcastle’s premium open-air music festival is set to return for a third year in 2018.
For the past two years SSD Concerts have taken over Times Square to bring you seven out of this world performances. With over 40,000 music fans in attendance, Live From Times Square is the biggest inner-city music event Newcastle has ever seen.
2016 saw the launch of Live from Times Square, a labour of love for the Davis brothers of SSD Concerts who wanted to bring open-air live music back to Newcastle. Previously revellers had the opportunity to attend Evolution Festival, however since its discontinuation, there has been no large-scale outdoor music event to rival it’s popularity. Enter Time Square to change the face of music in Newcastle forever.
Mammoth headliners are already commonplace at Live from Times Square. With Ocean Colour Scene, Primal Scream, Fat Boy Slim, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Maximo Park in 2016 to Manic Street Preachers, Brian Wilson, The Libertines, James and Hacienda Classical in 2017.
Although the festival has yet to announce it’s acts for the coming year it is already promising to be bigger and better than ever. For now, lets take a look back at 2017’s amazing line-up (left).
