The sixth staging of Riverside Rebellion will take place on Saturday, 5th December, 2020.
We are delighted to be able to announce the full line - up taking place on the upstairs stage, as follows:
The Vibrators celebrating their 44th year. The band are constantly on the road touring Europe and beyond. They remain a popular live attraction and have played for us twice before at the Westgarth.
XSLF - Featuring Henry Cluney & Jim Reilly who were the rhythm section on three of the original SLF's albums. A chance meeting got them back together. Jim is currently out of action dunder doctors orders so Glenn Dunsmore of The Defects - everyone remembers 'Survival' is filling-in for him for the time being.
The Gakk come from Dundalk, Northern ireland and impressed us at Rebellion in Blackpool last summer. The five - piece have a sound not too dis-similar to SLF though they vary their set with reggae and ska tunes. They are electrifying live.
Three local bands provide the regional support with Boilermaker from Darlington; The Fauves from South Shields and Slalom D from Sunderland all returning to the Westgarth.
The downstairs fringe festival will be announced in the Autumn.
