First Details Revealed

We’re very happy to be able to announce some more details of the first ever Twisterella Festival. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that all the logistics are in place, so now we can get moving on the fun stuff!

Twisterella will take place on Saturday 11th October 2014 and will be centred around the Southfield Road/Linthorpe Road area of Middlesbrough. The 1000 capacity festival will utilise well established music venues such as Teesside University Students’ Union, The Keys, Westgarth Social Club and Liberty’s, with an acoustic stage planned for TSOne.

The event is designed to showcase the brightest emerging national and international music talent and will also give a platform to a select number of local and regional acts who are ready to make the step up to the big stage.

In addition to the live acts, Twisterella will feature an Unconference with the focus on bringing key music industry figures to the town to share their expertise and offer advice to new and developing Teesside musicians.
