Another keen-eyed booking on the part of Hit the North Festival are firm favourites from last year, The Magic Gang. Joining them on their second round at HTN are local indie-rock heavyweights The Pale White.
There’s plenty of fresh faces joining the ranks with a diverse mix of genres and backgrounds making up 2018’s first wave of acts. Charming storyteller Will Heard brings his unique blend of Blues, Folk, Funk and Soul; Anteros provide bittersweet dream-pop; Bath indie-rockers Blaenavon cause a stir with favourites from 2017’s debut That’s Your Lot; and rising hip-hop multi-instrumentalist, Dylan Cartilidge, brings smooth baselines, quick-fire lyrics, and old-school hip-hop beats.
Never one to forget it’s roots, Hit The North Festival continues its local talent celebration in 2018 with sets from Detroit Social Club who recently made a welcome return after six years of silence. Also flying the North East flag shoegazers Dose, cosmic R&B champions The Old Pink House and recent Primary Talent signing Avalanche Party.
