Stockton Globe has announced a show-stopping line-up of artists for the eagerly awaited GLOBEfest!
Globefest is an interactive family festival celebrating the one-year anniversary of its opening in partnership with Stockton Borough Council for the people of Stockton and Teesside. Included in the list of incredible artists announced to perform on the main stage is, charismatic rapper and newly announced presenter of BBC Music Introducing Shakk, Amelia Coburn with her distinctive fusion of folk, jazz, new wave, classic rock and pop, three-piece, Latin-style acoustic band playing and arranging an eclectic range of covers Los Capitanes, and SHE! a five-piece band show to celebrate some of the most inspiring pop and rock sheroes in music. Joining them on the main stage bill will be classy, dynamic and impressive, up and coming alt-pop artist Nadedja, and We Tibetans with their barn storming brand of alternative indie rock, as well as local Arc ukulele group Arculele, and Stockton’s own much-loved Frazer Lambert & The 1933 Choir. Performing on The LINK'S stage will be indie, folk singer-songwriter Joe Ramsey, singer Marina Gears, soulful, eighties inspired, balladeer Lost State of Dan, and female poetry collective Tees Women Poets, while creative production and dance company Urban Kaos, magician Andy Larmouth, and Stockton Riverside College will be bringing a variety of entertainment to the side stage. There are some amazing workshops confirmed for the day including drumming with Apollo Arts, storytelling with Chris Bostock, as well as sessions focusing on singing, stage makeup, and puppet making. Sign-up for workshops will be on a first come first served basis with ticket holders able to make bookings closer to the date of the festival. GLOBEfest will also feature a range of street performers, picnics, a heritage cinema, face painting, treasure hunts, stalls and much (MUCH!) more. The first batch of tickets completely sold out in a matter of hours, and due to huge demand Stockton Globe will be releasing an additional batch at midday on Weds 3rd August so head to stocktonglobe.co.uk or at the Visitors Information Centre on the High Street as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment. For more information and announcements, keep an eye on the Stockton Globe social media channels and the website.
