Platinum selling artist Newton Faulkner has been added to the already impressive Stockton Weekender line up, which is running 5th – 7th August, along with Teesside mavericks Young Rebel Set.


Faulkner is best known for his hugely successful Number 1 debut album Hand Built By Robots that spawned hits such as Dream Catch Me and his cover of Massive Attack’s Teardrop, and went on to go two times platinum in the UK. His second album Rebuilt by Humans went Gold and sealed his place as one of the UK’s biggest male solo stars.


He’s supported the likes of Paolo Nutini and John Mayer on national tours, as well as being a regular fixture at major festivals such as Glastonbury, V and Lollapalooza, U.S.A, over the last few years. His soaring vocals and skillful guitar playing have made him a legendary live act.


Performing alongside Newton on Friday 5 August, and the previously announced headliner Seasick Steve, are one of the areas most prolific bands, Young Rebel Set.


The boys are celebrating the release of their debut album Curse Our Love in June after successful single releases of If I Was, Measure of a Man and Lions Mouth with, what is certain to be, a blazing set at the Weekender.


Preaching full-blooded tales of tough love, hard luck and the triumph of romance against the odds has gained them a massive following in the UK and across Europe, and their performance on Friday night will be highly anticipated.


These announcements follow those of rock’n’roll lovies Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Bruce Springsteen’s current man of the moment Pete Molinari and the unstoppable force that is Cattle & Cane all playing on the opening night.


Confirmed to play Saturday night alongside Maximo Park, Cast and The Chapman Family are London based four-piece Django Django. The band is somewhat of an enigma but one thing is for certain; they’re an outstanding live act and huge festival favourites.


Add to this indie-popsters Jimmy & The Sounds and new buzz band Collectors Club (both Sat) and you've got a very juicy line up, and there’s still more to come.


Ticket prices for entry to watch the music are £15 a day (Friday/Saturday) and £25 for a weekend ticket. Children under 14 go free but must be accompanied by an adult. Sunday remains free entry. Ticket prices for comedy and on sale date are still to be announced. Ticket information at
