Gateshead Beer & Music Festival 2017


Gateshead Beer & Music Festival first started off in 2010 with the emphasis on creating a great local community festival. Moving forward seven years the festival has grown into an event that is loved both locally and nationally, whilst maintaining its community beliefs. In 2016 we were delighted to be named as a Finalist in the Tyne & Wear Lifestyle awards - Best live experience. 

The festival organisers pride themselves on striving to improve the festival year on year, this year there are no exceptions with the introduction of the Malt Whiskey Bar, the new and improved Cider bar, the addition of premium lagers and a new food area.

Once again we have a great selection of Ales & Ciders that are sourced countrywide; however, we always ensure that we provide a great springboard for local brewers to showcase their products. This year we have chosen Devon & Cornwall as our showcase region. In addition to the popular Cava bar, we will see the return of our Gin filled Jam Jar Bar.

As always we have 3 days of great music and headlining this year we have Soul Street on the Saturday and The Shakes on Sunday.

We are very excited to welcome the mOOb’s back following their electric performance at last year’s festival, this year sees them back on the Friday performing on the same bill as the legendary Revolutionaires who will tear through a set off jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues!

Our line-up has something for everyone… highlights include a set from The Caffreys a band once labelled the “Geordie Eagles” and recent finalists in BBC tv’s “Britain’s best part-time band”.  Chloe Chadwick whom was recently nominated for `Best UK  Female country Artist & best UK act’ in the uk country radio awards 2016 will be featuring. We have a fantastic trio of tribute acts AntMusic, 10cclo and the Acoustic Beatles (recently recorded at Abbey Road) recreating some amazing music. … Groovetrain will be bringing the sounds of stax and soultrain with a fantastic line-up which includes "British Blues & Souls awards finalists".

We are particularly looking forward to Sunday which starts with traditional Andean panpipe music from APU who hail from Peru followed by the Strictly Smokin’ big band.

We will also have performances from The Phil David’s good times band, Carly Mckee Duo, Flipside, Juke Joint Blues, Silver Skiffle  and many many more
