Listen: Scoop Festival returns to Durham for another weekend of live music!

County Durham’s favourite two-day music festival is gearing up to stay at Burnhopeside Hall this July, where a weekend full of live music, food and family-friendly fun is on the cards.

Promising something for everyone, Scoop is bringing together a line-up of incredible artists, an assortment of local street food, and a great variety of camping options. As the festival heads back to the picturesque village of Lanchester from the 29th of July, organisers promise to continue their celebration of local talent, vendors & scenes.

For the first time ever, the festival will be hosted on the stunning grounds of Burnhopeside Hall. The World Heritage site is located 6.5 miles west of Durham City, and this beautiful country house provides a historic setting for a peaceful festival vibe with its surrounding 18 acre gardens and woodland stretched over 475 acres.

Bands that are set to perform at the festival include the acclaimed Mumford & Sons tribute band, Chasing Mumford; renowned R.E.M. tribute band, Stipe; Teesside’s treasured ska and 2-tone band, The Skapones; as well as fan-favourite and Newcastle’s Brit-Pop connoisseurs, The National Anthems.

Fresh from her Glastonbury appearance, Hayley Mckay is the final addition to the line-up. The Hot Country TV Awards UK Entertainer of the Year hit number 1 in the Ignition Country Charts and was voted Top 3 best singles in Ireland. Now, she is ready to wow the crowds in County Durham next month.

Adding to the already impressive line-up of the best and brightest pop, rock and tribute talent the North East has to offer, Scoop has also announced stripped back acoustic sets as well as a ‘Secret Forest Stage’, where festival-goers can enjoy the sounds of Deep House surrounded by scenic views (courtesy of Deep Fix Recordings).

From full band madness, to chill acoustic musings, and finally to vibe-heavy house treats, attendees will be able to enjoy a weekend full of live music and entertainment for all ages and genres.

Founded in 2018 by Tristan Raine, Scoop Music Festival aims to celebrate outstanding regional talent in an area of outstanding local beauty. Focusing on supporting established and emerging talent, the festival wants to provide an exciting and unique platform for artists.

Boasting the perfect mix of live music, local street food, children’s entertainment, stunning country views and a fully stocked bar, ticket-holders will be living out all of their festival dreams. With both general camping and glamping options available, Scoop Music Festival has set a high bar for North East events and they’re only going up from here.
