Summer Streets Festival is a proud member of Wear and Tyne festivals - an independent collective which aims to promote festival culture in the North East.  

The dazzling line-up for this year's Summer Streets Festival has been revealed. 

The free, two-day festival of music, culture and community will be on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16 at Cliffe Park, Roker. 

Summer Streets will once again have three performance stages, an eclectic mix of musical genres and plenty of activities and workshops for families to enjoy. 

Headline acts for this year include The Young'Uns, north east folk favourites who have won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award three times. They'll appear on the evening of Saturday, July 15. 

Sunday's headliners are The Original Pinettes, an all-female brass band from New Orleans, who are performing thanks to a partnership with Durham BRASS. The ground-breaking party band have previously performed with Arcade Fire and Katy Perry. 

Saturday will be hosted by BBC Look North's Jeff Brown and will also feature Big Red & The Grinners (an Americana/bluegrass band); Baghdaddies (an exuberant brass band); singer songwriter Lee J Toby and Houghton Brass Band. 

On the BBC Music Introducing North East stage, there will be performances from Sunderland band Roxy Girls, plus Headcage, rapper Reali-T, Frankie Jobling, Just B and Sarah Johnstone. 

 

Sunderland Music Hub will be delivering workshops throughout the day, while Curious Arts, Chalk and Tiny Tweeties will provide fun and entertainment for younger members of the audience.

Sunday will be compered by Frankie Francis, singer with Frankie & The Heartstrings.

Sunday's other headline acts include Hannabiell & The Midnight Blue Collective, an Afro fusion collective which fuses Latin and African percussion with brass, blues and jazz, and Sunderland rock band Slug, who have just finished touring their third album.

Sunday will also feature the first festival performance for Blowdry Colossus, a new musical venture of Field Music's Peter Brewis.

Other Sunday performers include north east musical collective Dilutey Juice; South Shields singer and guitarist Cortney (correct) Dixon; regional pop-punk band bigfatbig, and Sunderland Symphony Orchestra.

There will be a range of food and drink stalls, including some favourites from around the city. For more information, go to www.summerstreetsfestival.com.
