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 are 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 under 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.

Four north east bands provide the local support with Boilermaker from Darlington; The Fauves from South Shields, festival regulars Johnny Seven and Slalom D from Sunderland all returning to the Westgarth.

The downstairs fringe festival will be announced in the Autumn.
