Festival Preview: Evolution Emerging

Evolution Emerging 2015


evolution emergingEvolution Emerging is Generator NE’s day long music festival dedicated to emerging music. The festival takes place on Saturday 23rd of May in Ouseburn Valley Newcastle.

Generator NE is one of the UK’s go-to music development agencies for new music, running the Tipping Point, a concept whereby they invite new music experts from around the country to give their reccomendations on a weekly basis to find the best new music and continue to push it forward.

The Evolution Emerging festival takes this a step further and brings together some of those acts to perform live in Generator’s home city of Newcastle.

While there is a broad choice of music available we’ve picked a few of our favourites for you to take a look at ahead of May 23rd.

We’ll also be running a competition for a pair of tickets to Evolution Emerging over on our Twitter page at the end of the week.

Tickets for  Evolution Emerging are on sale now £5 for a  here.

Street Party In Soho

When you think of Street Parties in Soho you might think of London or New York not the streets of Newcastle but that’s exactly where these guys are coming from. They blend Foal’s math rock with some punchy vocals a la Maximo Park but also think something a little heavier too, more of a rocky edge and then you’ll be about there.

Cape Cub

With only two tracks in the last six months things have already started to move along pretty nicely for Cape Cub. His first track Lanterns received supprt from the likes of BBC Introducing and his brand new track Swim is about to take things up another notch. His music is warm and brooding and easily likeable from the off.

Glass Caves

Glass Caves pack a punch, or three, with their guitar and beat heavy rock. There’s more than enough melody to get you singing and more than enough rhythm to keep you dancing. At the end of 2014 Glass Caves release their debut album, Alive, and have been touring heavily up and down the UK giving many an audience a treat with their live show.

Melissa Rose

Melissa pens beautifully poignat songs that revolve around a stripped back acoustic framework of guitars and other majestic strings. Her vocal is strong and stirring and never fails to hit the mark. A local North East girl she’s bound to have great support at the festival, make sure you’re one of those supporters.
