Newcastle gets a new festival

A new one day music festival, Hi:Fi North is set to take place, as that name
suggests, in the north of the country this summer. The event takes place on
27 May at the Matfen Estate in Newcastle, and has announced headliners for
each of its eight arenas in the form of Ian Brown, Maximo Park, Audio
Bullys, Editors, Paul Oakenfold, Erick Morillo, Sasha & Digweed and 2 Many
DJs.

The festival has been orchestrated by Global Gathering organisers the Angel
Music Group. Organiser James Aldgate says “Hi:Fi is the festival for the
iPod generation. The event will offer something for everyone musically by
bridging the gap between out and out dance and live shows. We want to give
our guests the opportunity to see their indie and dance heroes performing
side by side for the first time. This is something that we believe will suit
the more eclectic music tastes of the 21st century perfectly.”

Tickets are on sale now and feature a VIP version entitling guests to access
a private arena. A southern leg of the event, Hi:Fi South, is also said to
be taking place, although no details have been confirmed as yet.
