And all for £35 for the weekend or £25 per day!
SATURDAY MAIN STAGE
The legend that is Iggy Pop will headline Saturday night bringing with him The Stooges and their incendiary raw power!
Add the meteoric Two Door Cinema Club and rock royalty The Kills and already you begin to get the picture.
SUNDAY MAIN STAGE
Plan B and Tinie Tempah need no introduction. The two biggest crossover stars of the past 12 months are proof that UK music no longer lives in the shadow of its American counterparts.
With Example in support Evolution brings to the main stage some of the biggest exponents of the UK music scene.
Across the weekend the Baltic Stage plays host to Katy B, Caribou, Spank Rock,
Jamie Woon, Annie Mac, Sub Focus, Fenech Soler, Mount Kimbie, Zinc and a whole host more to ensure the Baltic crowd are kept dancing throughout.
Evolution would not be complete without a taste of the future….
Will Brother be the biggest band in the world?
Why are Bravestation being flown in especially from Canada?
Who exactly is the CocknBullKid?
What is Django Django?
Are Not Squares really not square?
If past years at Evolution bear any testament these artists will be the next generation of musical superstars whose credentials will be on display in full effect over Evolution weekend. Don’t miss them!
Away from the throng in the Big Top on Ballast Hills, amongst the holistic healing and the hand pumped ale, Billy Bragg, recent winners of Best Act and Best Live Group at the Folk Awards,Bellowhead, Ron Sexsmith, Kathryn Williams and Smoke Fairies, give the event a different feel and journey.
Yet again, Evolution brings the most prolific and diverse musical talent to the North East and further cements its burgeoning reputation as a key date in the international festival calendar.
Festival Director, Jim Mawdsley explains, ‘We are continuing to build this event into a major music festival for the North of England. We have been working solidly since September to pull this line up together and it is without doubt the strongest and most varied to date. I’d say ‘see you at the front’ but I’m personally spoilt for choice and haven’t a clue what stage I’ll be at when!’
