Hartlepool Live will take place across five different venues on Saturday, June 15, featuring headliner Paul Smith of Maximo Park and Ross Millard of Sunderland post-punk band The Futureheads.

Millard will play a DJ set at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre in a change to the previously announced Reverend and the Makers DJ set.

Hartlepool Live has been commissioned by Hartlepool Borough Council in partnership with local musician James Leonard Hewitson, The Studio, Hops and Cheese, Chili Cake Kitchen & Bar and The Contemporary (13-14 Church Street).

It is set to be a sell-out and music fans are being urged to get their tickets as soon as possible.
