The Festival is the brainchild of SSD concerts, who last year brought you acts like Catfish & The Bottlemen and Maximo Park in the giant open air events Live at Time Square. The SSD team also received a helping hand from Soul Kitchen Music and Famous 4:15 to help make Hit The North a reality.
The dream was to bring the North East it’s first Metropolitan music festival to rival that of Live at Leeds or The Great Escape. Putting the North on the map as a home for emerging talent as well as a hub for established artists.
After the success of Hit The North 2017, we will be returning to take over the city once more in 2018.
