WOW! What an amazing weekend at Hardwick Live Festival!

A massive thank you to our headliners Manic Street Preachers and James for putting on amazing shows and ending two spectacular days in style.

Special thank you goes out to ROE for traveling from America to play on our Discovery Stage and also to The Joy Formidable for coming straight down to Hardwick Live Festival from Glasgow after supporting The Cure the night before. Hardwick Live Festival was Ziggy Marley first time appearing in the North East, which was amazing and truly memorable show. Big shout out to all the bands who performed on all three stages over the weekend with some amazing sets.

This year saw two new additions to the festival which were both a huge success. Our new BBC Introducing Stage had some fantastic talent from the Teesside area, they were definitely some artists to watch out for in the future. The other new arena was The Courtyard with was an amazing success with Glitterbox taking over on Saturday with some fantastic DJs and then followed by Retro DJs putting on an amazing performance on Sunday.

Thank you to all the DJs who performed in The Dome this year the atmosphere and buzz was amazing.

We were very fortunate with the weather over the weekend, Hardwick Live Festival has had an amazing atmosphere from start to finish and we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who attended over the weekend.

The Hardwick Live Festival Team are looking forward to seeing you next year. Dates will be released next month so keep your eyes peeled.
