Live Preview: A Stone’s Throw Festival // Tynemouth and North Shields – 25.05.24


After a 2023 hiatus following a successful first event, A Stone’s Throw Festival is back for 2024 and have recently released a second announcement of acts, including Vistas, Another Sky and Alien Chicks, who are due to be performing across the Newcastle coastline in Tynemouth and North Shields. 

The day will highlight nine local venues and spaces, ranging from coffee shops to working men’s clubs, with a few venues having accessibility options. All of the included venues will all be reachable via a free open-top bus service, with live music on the top deck, which will be traveling between the two towns with a quick seven-minute round trip, courtesy of Go North East and North Tyneside Council.

The festival, which will be taking place on the 25th of May, will be hosting a line-up of over fifty artists, and has revealed that they will be joined by headliners such as the prolific indie pioneers Sundara Karma, post-punk classics Bilk, and Dutch three-piece Pip Blom, as well as White Lies, who will be headlining the official opening party on the 24th of May at North Shields’ The Exchange 1856. In the build-up to the festival, they have said “We’re so excited to be headlining the opening of A Stone’s Throw Festival this year, there’s an amazing lineup and we always feel at home in Newcastle, see you there!”

They will be joined by some of the most exciting newer artists on the scene such as Arthur Hill, Opus Kink, Arctic Lake, and up-and-coming acts both local to the Newcastle region and from further afield. The festival is sure to bring a vibrant buzz to what is set to be one of the north-east’s biggest events in the run up to summer, especially against the backdrop of the coastal trail.

Those of you looking forward to a bustling day in the sun can grab tickets here.
