Chase Park Festival returns this weekend with headliners Reverend and the Makers - and you and your family could be there for free.
The indie dance stalwarts are joined on the bill by Oxford’s alt- folk rockers Stornoway, former Futureheads frontman Barry Hyde and Ben Ottewell, the
singer of 1990s indie rock legends Gomez as well as Canada’s Stranger Stranger and Tyneside four-part harmony outfit The Cornshed Sisters.
They’ll be taking to the stage at Chase Park, Gateshead, on Saturday, August 6 for the event which has been praised as one of Britain’s most all-inclusive festivals.
As well as being family-friendly, the event makes it more easy for those with a disability to attend a music festival.
Festival organiser Alistair McDonald, said: “There’s a real mix of established and emerging bands and different styles of music. I think everyone who comes will really enjoy it. We have a few bands in there that people might not be too familiar with, but they are going to surprise a few people.
“Reverend and the Makers are the epitome of fun and reflect what Chase Park is all about: family fun in the sun for everyone.
“The beauty of attending a festival is being able to see loads of different bands that you like and also be exposed to new artists that will come as a welcome surprise. I think that the calibre of artists is exceptionally high. I really love the atmosphere at Chase Park and because the event has no barriers it really lends its self to an audience of like-minded music fans, families and people of all abilities.”
