This free festival (part of Darlington’s Summer of Sound) is run by Darlington Borough Council, Darlington Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Club and Gasto Promotions.
The outside stage in the Market Square kicks off proceedings with an eclectic mix of RnB bands. The riverside stage will also be back, making another great location to enjoy even more live music.
DL1 plan to have a couple of bands on in the early evening on their refurbished podium area, equipped with seating, heaters, bar and mood lighting.
Alongside the main stages, there are fringe events taking place all around the town, with well over 15 venues and 30+ bands on the Sunday alone.
