Britpop icons Ocean Colour Scene are taking the North East back to the 1990s.
The band - whose chart-topping anthems include The Riverboat Song & The Day We Caught The Train – are currently celebrating the 20th anniversary of their legendary Moseley Shoals album and will be taking part in a two-day indie showdown in the centre of Newcastle this summer.
Ocean Colour Scene will also be joined by fellow 90s stalwarts Shed Seven and Sunderland's Hyde & Beast – who's chief vocalist and guitarist was a member of English post-punk outfit The Futureheads 90s - at an epic live music weekender at Times Square Newcastle on 30th July.
The event is being hosted by the men behind the celebrated Newcastle clubbing venues Digital and Think Tank in collaboration with the Centre for Life.
Steve Davis of organisers SSD Concerts said: “Growing up, the Moseley Shoals album and Ocean Colour Scene's music was a constant feature in all of our lives and we're delighted to be able to bring them back to Newcastle for this super-sized open air event.
“We're also very pleased to be able to announce that we also have Shed Seven on the bill as well as one of the region's best new bands, Hyde & Beast.
“If we're lucky, the sun will be shining on Times Square in July and fans of 90s British indie and live music, in general, are in for a royal treat.”
Ocean Colour Scene will be performing live at Times Square, Newcastle on Saturday July 20 2016. The event starts at 2pm and goes on until 11pm.
