ON the back of the success of the extended format this year, Tynedale’s premier music festival will again be held over two days.

Corbridge Festival returned in style in 2019 following its first fallow year last year, with the event, held at Tynedale Rugby Club, running over two full days for the first time in its history.

Organiser Cheryl Durkin has confirmed the 2020 festival will follow the same format, and will be held at the Corbridge venue on July 3 and 4.

Cheryl said: “Spurred on by your continued loyalty, support and wonderful words of encouragement, we’ve decided to make 2020 the one to top all others.

“We’ve teamed up with SSD Concerts to enable us to present to you an extravaganza of musical delight.”

This summer, the festival attracted two top headliners to cater for both days.

Reef, who hit their heights in the era of 1990s Britpop, headlined the Friday evening, with New York City trip Fun Lovin Criminals bringing the festival to a fitting conclusion with their set on the Saturday.

Other musical highlights on the opening day included Tyne Valley girl band Blistered Molly and North-East group Baghdaddies.

The line-up for Saturday catered for a mix of musical tastes with local interest coming from singer/songwriter Sam Shields and Manchester band Satyr Play, which included Dan Crowther, a former pupil at Hexham’s Queen Elizabeth High School, on bass.

Tickets for the 2020 festival are currently on sale at early bird discounted rates.
