A Hartlepool rock festival has named another headlining act.

English indie band, Space, has been named as the third headlining act for Seaton Rocks.

The band, from Liverpool, came to prominence in the mid-1990s with hit singles such as Female Of The Species, Me And You Versus The World, Neighbourhood, Avenging Angels and The Ballad Of Tom Jones.

Mulit-platinum selling band Cast will headline the festival, supported by The Strypes.

Organisers of the ticket-only Seaton Rock, which will be staged on Saturday, July 1, are already hoping it will become an annual event.

This is its first year, and it is being organised by Ian Young with help from John Rogers and Joanne Winter and all profits will be donated to cancer charities in Hartlepool.

The event will be held on the coach car park and former fairground site in Seaton Carew from 11am to 10pm.

Ian previously told the Hartlepool Mail that he was hoping the festival would be the biggest event to hit Seaton for years.

He said he had been organising the event since the beginning of November last year and was hoping for 6,000 to 10,000 people.
