THE NORTH EAST'S BIGGEST EVENT FOR EMERGING MUSIC
LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON
Evolution Emerging will see more than 25 emerging artists playing alongside special guest headliners and artists unearthed through our innovative Tipping Point blog.
The event has grown considerably over the last few years, with not one, but four great headliners last year in Let’s Buy Happiness, Nadine Shah, Shields and B>E>A>K. Generator’s reputation for unearthing talent early through the event was once again cemented with the likes of Eliza and the Bear going on to sign to Capitol Records and support Paramore on an arena tour, Bridie Jackson & the Arbour securing a Glastonbury slot, and Big Beat Bronson playing T in the Park while being playlisted on BBC Radio. The event’s reputation was firmly established, with over 1,500 music fans descending on the Ouseburn Valley.
Joe Frankland, Artist Development Manager at Generator says:
“We’re all really proud that Evolution Emerging has given an early platform to a massive number of the North East's biggest artists - Lulu James, Mausi, Lanterns on the Lake, The Lake Poets, Beth Jeans Houghton, We Are Knuckle Dragger, Eva Stone and Boy Jumps Ship to name but a few - so there really is no better opportunity to get noticed and we encourage any artist in the region to get involved – don’t miss out!”
