10.00pm We Are Scientists

Glossy but guitar-dominated indie rockers from Brooklyn, USA and triumphantly returning to Ku for Stockton Calling 2018. this is going to be an absolute blast. if you know them, you know them. if you don’t, you need to!

8.30pm October Drift

Despite the early success of their incendiary debut singles – receiving support from Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Q to name but a few – and string of sold-out gigs, October Drift are characterized by their signature wall of sound guitars, soaring, ponderous vocals and driving, urgent drums.

7.30pm Cape Cub

Every once in a while a singer-songwriter will come along who is truly something special, and in this case it’s Teesside’s very own cape cub. hitting you with rolling sonic waves that mesmerize you as they build into small tsunamis of perfect indie pop.

Rock ‘n’ Roll fresh from Pigeon Detectives support slots and a glorious set at Twisterella Festival – are these the next big thing from Teesside?

The five-piece has a unique and iconic sound that is very different to most bands on the circuit right now- NE Volume

2.50pm Uncle Buzzard
