Q: How many emerging artists are playing at Evolution Emerging this year?

But for those who don't win the tickets, don't worry. As the event enters its biggest year yet, Generator is continuing its low ticket fee to reflect the ambitions of the event and to ensure growth in future years. All this new music can be seen for just £5 which includes free entry to our aftershow party at Retreat. 

Generator’s Artist Development Manager, Bob Allan says: 

“We’re really proud to be in our seventh year of Evolution Emerging and with our 2014 event selling out it proves that people have an appetite to discover the next big thing. 

Generator’s ability to programme the best emerging talent in the region and beyond has provided a fantastic platform for new acts to follow in the footsteps of Lulu James, Mausi, Beth Jeans Houghton, The Lake Poets, Nadine Shah, Eliza and the Bear and Boy Jumps Ship. We’re really excited to once again fill the Ouseburn Valley with an abundance of new talent and continue to build the national profile of the event.”

Evolution Emerging will be taking over three great intimate venues again, with Antlez, The Broken Broadcast, Lord Swans, Canyons, AKO, Keiandra, Joe Allan, Symmatik, What We Call Progress, Joe Ramsey, Melissa Rose and Lesley Roley among the many acts playing Blank Studios, Ernest and Little Buildings across the Ouseburn Valley. 

And if that wasn’t enough, the official Evolution Emerging Aftershow will this year be taking place at one of the newest venues, Retreat, situated at the top of Stepney Bank. DJ sets are still to be announced but that’s not all. The venue will also be accommodating infectious headliners Keep Breathing, indie enthusiasts Street Party In Soho, potent rock outfit Hazels, the majestic Sun Dance and Hartlepool’s own Shoot The Poet earlier in the evening which is sure to help spread the party atmosphere. More details will be announced very soon.
