This Is Tomorrow Festival was launched in 2018 to bring the best talent to one of the largest festivals to grace Newcastle.
Headliners: Catfish & The Bottlemen, Thirty Seconds To Mars
Other Artists: Don Broco, Everything Everything, Marmozets, Little Comets, Sam Fender
Born out of the cutting edge legacy of ‘Father of Pop Art’, Richard Hamiliton, and his vision of pushing the boundaries of what is expected, the festival was targeted to deliver an ethos of experimentation, daring and downright defiance of the norm.
Held over Spring Bank Holiday on Friday 25th May and Saturday 26th May 2018, taking place on Newcastle’s Quayside at Spillars Wharf, we went big. Brit Award winners Catfish And The Bottlemen headlined the Friday night, joined by North East indie Stalwarts Little Comets and BBC’s Sound of 2018 Newcastle born singer-songwriter Sam Fender.
With that phenomenal Friday line up, the Saturday was just as big! US mega-stars Thirty Seconds To Mars headlined, a date coming at the end of their huge European tour in 2018. They were supported by Bedford rock outfit Don Broco, and West Yorkshire rockers Marmozets.
Over 30,000 music lovers attended over the weekend. 2018 was just the beginning of This Is Tomorrow Festival to deliver on its promise of a daring a defiance of the norm.
