I’m pleased to announced that I will be DJing as part of Mash-Up Festival in Morpeth on August 31st.
The event is held at White House Farm Centre and kicks off at Midday until Midnight. If you’re worried about missing the last bus then camping is available for only £2.50. Bargain!
The festival is headlined by B>E>A>K from Sunderland on the mainstage and We Are Knuckle Dragger on the second stage. There’s a heap of other local talent on the bill including Rossi Noise, WTCHRS, Humanism and Patched Up Heroes. Tickets for the event are only £15 (you can get some, fee free, from the store on the CH website!) though if you require camping just pay your £2.50 on the door.
As well as the bands – and a draw within itself – they’ve got a range of craft beers from around the country – including, of course, Morpeth’s own Anarchy Brew Co. So, if some of the bands are not your cup of tea – good choice of beers to sup!
I will be DJing on the second stage from 12 noon through to 1.30pm – if anyone wants to catch me or show some support it’s all appreciated. My set may be a few steps away from what I normally play at Charnel House (and a little closer to what I play at Toxic) but expect a mix of Rock, Metal, Industrial, EDM, crossover and guilty pleasures.
Personally, I’m really stoked about this. For years people have moaned that most festivals (Evolution aside) are outside the area and a strong Southern bias, so it’s good to have something closer to home. Granted it’s not “big name” headliners – but for a mere £20 for tickets and camping, plenty of cool bands plenty of cool beers, if the event gets good support then who knows for future. It’s always exciting to see people trying to create cool things – hence why I’ll be getting behind it and willing on it’s success.
