Stockton Calling – Teesside’s biggest and best multi-venue music festival – returns to Stockton on Saturday 11 April 2020. Each year, venues across the town host stellar headliners, some of the most exciting national emerging artists, alongside the very best of regional acts.

Now in its 11th year, Stockton Calling had a triumphant 2019 with its largest ever capacity crowd and organisers are expecting another sell-out this year with the announcement of the ARC 2 stage.

Headlining the stage are Virgin/EMI signings Sophie & The Giants. With a debut album coming soon, big things are expected of this Sheffield quartet as they return to Teesside following appearances at Radio One Big Weekend and a slot at Stockton’s Gathering Sounds festival in 2019.

Also appearing on the stage are Darlington’s indie-pop darlings Llovers, London’s Weird Milk, hotly tipped Sunderland four-piece Vanderbilt, and Tyneside’s Hector Gannet.

Other artists who will be playing include Eve Conway whose career is going from strength to strength following a BBC Maida Vale session last year, indie folk singer-songwriter Joe Ramsey, Teesside’s own Salsola, and Jodie Nicholson who released her debut album to great acclaim in late 2019.

Already announced for Stockton Calling are the festival’s main headliner Peter Hook & The Light and the complete KU Stockton stage line-up which features Red Rum Club, Lathums, The Mysterines, The Illicits, Low Hummer, Benefits, Mt Misery, Plastic Glass, and The K’s.

Jimmy Beck, one of the festival’s organisers said: “We’re really, really pleased with how the line-up for Stockton Calling is shaping up this year. We’ve booked some of the most exciting acts coming through nationally and some north-east artists that are absolutely smashing it at the moment.”
