This summer, Blyth beach will play host to the ever-popular Blyth Live Festival and once again some of the nation’s top bands will perform. Funded by Blyth Town Council, The Blyth Live Festival on 17 June is headlined by Liberty X and 911.
After appearing on TV show Popstars, Liberty X had their first single Thinking It Over in the Top Five in the charts and set the pace for a hugely successful debut album selling over a million copies worldwide. They followed this up with a smash hit number one single Just A Little. The song earned them a BRIT Award for Best British Single and became the fifth most played song of the noughties.
911 are an English pop band who released their debut single, Night To Remember in 1996.
They then went on to record Love Sensation and have had nine successive UK Top 10 hits, sold ten million singles and six million albums around the world. They had a number one single with a cover of the Dr Hook classic, A Little Bit More in January 1999.
Blyth Live Festival
Cllr Adrian Cartie, Chair of Blyth Town Council’s Community Development Committee said:
“This year we have two iconic groups from the 1990s and 2000s to entertain us. Our “Blyth Live Festival” is always a highlight of our summer events programme and as ever the quality of the acts is tremendous.”
Mayor of Blyth Town Council Cllr Warren Taylor said:
“This is a great opportunity for families in Blyth to come down to the festival and have a really good day out. We are once again expecting around 15,000 people coming to watch the event and it will be a great advert for Blyth as we will be welcoming both residents and visitors to the town which will be good for local shops, hotels, and our hospitality businesses.”
As well as the musical attractions, the festival will have street theatre, superb food and a family activity area that will keep all ages entertained. More acts will be announced in due course.
