The Reytons

Headlining KU for this year’s festival will be South Yorkshire band The Reytons. Ticking the box for great indie rock music the band put 110% into their shows. KU’s Jimmy Beck says The Reytons are smashing it right now, and we’re over the moon they want to come back to KU for Stockton Calling. People are going to be walking away from this one covered in sweat and beer!”

The Skinner Brothers

Formed in 2018, the Skinner Brothers are a riotous, rebellion-tinged British band that quickly gained notoriety when Carl Barat invited them to support The Libertines’ UK tour. The band has since toured with The Streets and Kasabian.


On one hand Courting draw influences from the likes of Parquet Courts, Pavement and LCD Soundsystem, yet maintain a very British identity. Subsequently they’re fuelling the long-awaited Britpop revival we’re seeing, alongside the likes of Sports Team – showcasing all the characteristics of the genre, and announcing the emergence of Liverpool’s most exciting new band.


In true Gen Z fashion, STONE are a diffusion of the limitless cultures and subcultures they’ve had access to growing up in the digital age. In keeping with the idea of ‘punk’ being more an ethos than any one genre or scene – the band cite inspiration everywhere from IDLES and Sonic Youth to The Streets and AJ Tracey, with Mike Skinner’s spoken-word style being Fin’s primary lyrical inspiration.


Six piece psychedelic funk rock band from the Village of Churches in South Wales. They specialise in fat riffs, lush three part harmonies, and tight beats, all tied together with outfits you could expect to see at the launch party for Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. “Visually and sonically the best thing I’ve seen since I was born.” – London Van Anthony

Seb Lowe

Breaking out on TikTok even before his debut mini-album Half-Decent dropped last year, this politically literate and spell bindingly lyrical singer-songwriter captures the mood of our time and the anger of a generation.

Michael Gallagher

Real stories about real people and real life. That’s what you’ll find at the heart of every song by rising singer-songwriter Michael Gallagher from Hartlepool. The honesty of Michael’s lyricism is matched by the honesty of his musical style: a fond throwback to the thrilling British guitar music boom of the 2000s and a reminder that there’s a whole world of exciting music beyond metropolitan tastemakers.

Samantha Durnan

Samantha Durnan is a singer-songwriter, musician and producer based in the North East of England.

With musical influences from Mother of Witches ‘Stevie Nick’s’ to sisters ‘HAIM’ the Pop/Rock multi-instrumentalist creates catchy musical spells that will capture your Heart, Soul & Energy.


Two Middlesbrough-born brothers and drummer ‘Socks’ take their inspiration from the psych sounds of the 60s, the britpop 90’s and the laidback vibes of modern indie.
