Tribute festival returns
A TWO-DAY summer festival featuring top tribute acts is returning to a historic Teesside site for its fifth year.
The Summer Sound music festival will again be held in the grounds of Gisborough Priory.
One of Teesside’s best attended music events, with more than 4,000 people enjoying the music last year, it attracts people from all over the country with its mix of rock, pop and retro from some of the UK’s best tribute artists.
The English Heritage site will be transformed into a spectacular arena, with the ancient priory used as a backdrop for the main stage.
And this year is promising the most acts yet - 12 - playing over two nights to an expected sell-out crowd.
Last year’s event saw enjoy bands playing the sounds of UB40, U2, Culture Club, The Stone Roses, Blondie, Robbie Williams and more.
The organisers say this year’s line-up will appeal to all tastes and ages and, for the first time, a few local bands have been added to the show.
The weekend event will comprise a 1970s and 1980s party on Friday, July 28 and a night of rock and pop legends on Saturday, July 29.
The music festival allows guests to take their own food and drink.
Street entertainers, festival stalls, a food village and licenced bars add to the attractions.
The full line-up will be revealed soon and tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday, February 24. Visit www.facebook. com/summersoundevents
