Sunderland's Stadium of Light is set to host the North East's biggest ever pop show, as AEG Live brings a phenomenal summer music event to the region.
The family-friendly five-hour music extravaganza is designed to suit music fans of all ages, with JLS, The Wanted, Rita Ora, Little Mix, Lawson, Conor Maynard, Stooshe, Union J, Amelia Lily and more take to the stage in a one-off festival of music.
Doors open from 1pm with a funfair, fun family-friendly activities and music, with the main show commencing at 2pm.
JB, Aston, Marvin and Oritsé reached the final two of the X Factor back in 2008 - the first group ever to get that far on the show. Since then, their success has been nothing short of staggering, with sold-out arena and stadium tours, number one singles and multi-platinum albums. They have also won four MOBO Awards and two 2010 BRIT trophies to date. The group have decided to go their separate ways following their Greatest Hits Tour at the end of 2013, saying: "It has been the most incredible journey over the last 6 years and we have achieved more things than we could have ever dreamed possible."
JLS tour dates
One of 2010's biggest breakthroughs, the edgy-pop boy band based in London have already built up a huge fanbase. Their 2011 BRIT nominated debut single 'All Time Low' reached number one in the charts followed by their second song, 'Heart Vacancy', hitting number two. In March 2011, Jay, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom released the official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day, 'Gold Forever', which became their third top five single.
The Wanted tour dates
British-Albanian mezzo-soprano r'n'b queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart. Rita followed this with her own No.1 singles 'R.I.P' and 'How We Do (Party)', making her the only artist to have three No.1 singles in a row in 2012. The release of her debut album 'ORA' rounded off her incredible run also claiming the No.1 spot. 2015 saw her become mentor and judge as she took to the famous spinning chairs on BBC's The Voice.

Little Mix became the first ever girl band to reach the final three of the X Factor in the 2011 TV talent show. The girls originally auditioned for the X Factor as solo performers; under the tutelage of judge and mentor Tulisa Contostavlos they joined forces to become Little Mix, X Factor's first ever victorious group. Having captured the hearts and minds of the nation with their winning chemistry, musical sensibility and breath-taking vocal prowess, the girls shot straight to No.1 with their debut single 'Cannonbal'.

Lawson is Andy Brown, Adam Pitts, Joel Peat and Ryan Fletcher, a London-based band currently writing and recording with a big sound and big plans.
Lawson tour dates
From posting videos online whilst at school, Brighton singing sensation Conor was signed by Parlophone Records and won MTV's Brand New for 2012 award.
Conor Maynard tour dates
Salt-n-Pepa for 2012? Karis, Courtney and Alex offer an infectiously catchy, very sweary and distinctly British brand of urban pop. An 'X-rated En Vogue" said The Guardian!
Stooshe tour dates
In the two years since Union J went from talented hopefuls to overnight sensations on the 2012 series of The X Factor, there has been no stopping them. Their debut hit single ‘Carry You’, the follow up smash ‘Beautiful Life’, and their self-titled debut album all hit the Top 10.
As well as a major sold out 18 date tour under their belt, they have also released two books and launched their own successful merchandise range including dolls, stationery, jewellery and most recently their very own fragrance "Amaze Me".
