The dates have been announced for the 2019 version of Hardwick Live, the North East’s biggest live music festival.

The event, in the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel at Sedgefield, County Durham, will take place over the weekend August 17 and 18.

The full line up of artists taking part will be announced in due course, but organisers are working hard to ensure next year’s event will be the biggest and best to date.

This year's featured acts like Happy Mondays, Kaiser Chiefs, Shed Seven, Jake Shears, Vintage Trouble, Feeder and many more.

John Adamson, owner of Ramside Estates, which runs Hardwick Live. said: “This year we moved to a two-day festival for the very first time and it proved to be a huge success.

“We welcomed thousands of visitors over the two days, who enjoyed fantastic live music along with a host of other entertainment, with everything from DJs to celebrity chefs.

“Now we want to build on this year’s success as we return for two days in 2019.

"It’s too early to give anything away yet as to who we’ll have performing, but music-lovers can rest assured we plan to pull out all the stops to provide a line up which won’t be beaten.”
