A NEW outdoor music festival will be coming to Darlington this Spring in the form of CRIB-FEST, showcasing a mix of local bands/acts, upcoming bands from around the UK and some of the best cover bands in the country. This mix of indie rock n roll music should get any live music fan excited!

Headlining are the original Stone Roses tribute – Resurrection, formed in 1998 they are widely renowned as the greatest tribute to the Manchester legends, even being praised by Mani (Stone Roses bassist) stating “They do the songs justice and sound better than we did before we split”.

Also playing is Lucky Man, an acoustic tribute playing anthems from The Verve and their singer Richard Ashcroft.

Social Room are a six-piece band from Sunderland influenced by many of the most established Brit-pop and New Wave groups of the 90's. Bringing back much of that classic sound and more with the added flavour of modern indie groups.

Southampton four piece Costellos are definitive rock‘n’roll indie. Distinct anthemic driven songs and high energy performances have captured the attention of audiences across the UK and Europe earning them a "one to watch" title from the press.

Salvadors are a freewheelin' garage rock'n'roll band formed from the still smoking ashes of local bands The Dead Indians and the felons.

Representing Darlington are LC Grey and The RA’s resident band The Railway Men.

There is more amazing music and artists to be announced shortly!
