line-up includes the return of Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott.
Best known for Beautiful South and Housemartins hits including Rotterdam, Perfect 10, Happy Hour and Caravan of Love, the pair will also perform songs from their latest album Crooked Calypso at their show at Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Saturday, July 7, 2018.
Special guests on the night will be Sunderland’s Mercury Prize-nominated Field Music whose new album Open Here went Top 30 in its first week of release.
Speaking about the announcement, North Tyneside Elected Mayor, Norma Redfearn said: “I am delighted to welcome these fantastic artists to the line-up – I know many people will be looking forward to watching them in such a special and picturesque setting.
“With such brilliant acts, as well as a programme of free events in the local area, it is sure to be another great year for the Mouth of the Tyne Festival.
“The weekend attracts around 100,000 visitors a year and provides a huge boost to the local economy– supporting our commitment to making North Tyneside a great and prosperous place to live, work and visit.”
