A comedy tent will feature Show Me the Funny winner Patrick Monahan and other comedians. There will also be a theatre tent, silent disco, funfair and street performers.

David Whyte, one of the organisers, said: “Redcar has a real musical heritage with the Jazz Club and the Bowl having showcased so many great bands in the past, and we want to continue that tradition.

We are the only festival of this kind in the North-East that has proper festival camping so people can really get into the festival spirit.”

Weekend tickets are from £20 for adults and £7 for children. Day tickets are from £3 to £16, from redcar rocks.com with discounts for the first 500 sales.
