As a platform for up-and-coming artists in the North East it doesn’t get any bigger than Evolution Emerging, held every year in May and set in multiple venues across the city. The festival is the brainchild of Ouseburn Valley-based music development agency Generator, which take great pride in its ability to unearth bands and artists and provide them with the opportunity to showcase their talents to a larger audience. Many of these artists have gone on to become successful in their own right both in the UK and abroad, and the reputation of this event has continued to grow year on year with a regular turnout of over 1000 music-hungry punters. Keep an eye on the Evolution Emerging website for news on the lineup for next year’s event, but be sure to get your wristband early so as to avoid disappointment.
