Ahead of their appearance on Sunday as part of South Tyneside Festival we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the gig.

When: Sunday, July 21. Gates open at 12pm for Priority Plus ticket holders and 12.45pm for general admission.

Support: Phats and Small are returning to the festival by popular demand, after their performance at last year’s event prompted numerous requests to bring them back. They’re known for hit songs including Turnaround, Feel Good, Tonite and This Time Around. They will also be joined by local band The Understudies, who return to the event after supporting Busted at the 2017 series.
