Mouth of the Tyne Festival Postponed Until 2021

Music lovers of the North East will likely be well aware of the yearly festival that takes place in the stunning Tynemouth Priory each summer.

The festival has been going since 2005 and in previous years has pulled in huge acts such as Sam Fender, Beverley Knight, James Bay and Billy Ocean.

This year, the festival was due to go ahead on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th July. However, the festivals organisers have announced this morning that due to the current situation surrounding Covid-19, the Mouth of the Tyne Festival will not be going ahead this year.

It’s not all doom and gloom though, as the festival has managed to postpone their bookings with most of this years artists for July 2021 instead, and the lineup will now be happening between 8th – 11th July next year.

One of their headline performers, Keane, will now be taking to the stage on 8th July 2021, alongside Cattle and Cane and Eliza Shaddad. And the headliners for second part of the festival, Lighthouse Family, will perform on 10th July 2021, joined by PP Arnold and Georgie.

The event organisers released the following statement via their social media channels this morning;

“With a heavy heart, we announce that we have decided to reschedule this summer’s Mouth of the Tyne Festival. We will return between 8-11 July 2021. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, as with many other festivals and events across the UK this summer, we’ve decided to take action to protect residents, visitors, artists, suppliers and staff, following the latest government advice.

We are, however, delighted to say that ALL artists have agreed to return to Tynemouth next year. Keane’s rescheduled show will be on Thursday 8 July 2021 and Lighthouse Family’s will be on Saturday 10 July 2021. Newton Faulkner’s show at Playhouse Whitley Bay has been rescheduled for Monday 16 November this year. We’ll provide an update on festival performances from Saving Grace and John Cooper Clarke soon.

This would’ve been the festival’s 16th year. We really are very sad to have to postpone, our team has been working tirelessly to deliver you an amazing festival this summer, and we hate to think of you disappointed. We simply cannot take any chances on public safety in light of the ongoing situation. Thank you to everybody who has purchased tickets so far, all tickets remain valid for 2021, but if you would like a refund, you can get one from your point of purchase. Either Ticketmaster or See Tickets will be in touch with you soon.”
