Trib­ute fes­ti­val re­turns

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

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
