The people behind the North East's largest outdoor music gathering, This is Tomorrow Festival, have confirmed that they will launch an innovative socially distanced outdoor venue this summer.
Taking place at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park, just a stone’s throw from Newcastle City Centre, Virgin Money Unity Arena - a first of its kind in the UK - will offer people the chance to come together and enjoy live music from household names. Ticket holders will enjoy a parking to platform experience in full safety while adhering to social distancing rules.
Opening this August and remaining in situ until the end of the summer, the arena seeks to breathe new life into one of the industries that have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. Organisers hope to make up for the hundreds of festivals and concerts that have been forced to postpone or cancel this year.
One of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports of the moment who’s renowned for her irrefutable aptitude for writing chart smashing pop songs and her firmly ensconced electronic music roots, Becky Hill has an impressive string of hits to her name. She has written and performed on seven singles which charted in the top 40 of the UK official singles chart, including the million selling number 1, ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’ with Oliver Heldens, gold certified UK Top 10 single ‘Afterglow’ with Wilkinson and club anthem ‘Back & Forth’ with MK and Jonas Blue. She has collaborated with the likes of Rudimental, Matoma, Lil Simz and more. And her songwriting skills have been enlisted by artists ranging from MK, Tiesto, Jax Jones and Martin Solveig through to MNEK and Little Mix.
