Spring Break started in 2008 as a weekly night in Newcastle, to give the underground bands in our scene a regular place to play and hang out, and a chance for Newcastle kids to see some of the more interesting acts from around the world.
Last year we celebrated our favourite season with an all day festival of 20 of our favourite bands from our scene and a whole days drinking in the sun, for a measly $10. It went so well that we turned it into a series – “Spring Every Season” – and it was followed by the totally massive Summer Vibes, Totally Autumn and Winter Chills Festivals.
The Spring Every Season Cycle is about to complete itself for 2011, and to celebrate, we are returning to our roots!
That’s right, 20 bands, including a selection of the finest from our own scene, and a couple of damn interesting guests: we’re honoured to be joined by Krautrock pioneer DAMO SUZUKI from German 1960s-on psych legends CAN!!!! In Newcastle for the very first time, Damo will be joined on stage by veteran collaborators THE HOLY SOUL and some super special guests from Newcastle too.
And it’s gonna be a measly $10 again! So you can save your dosh for a shit ton of Zamkowes to drink out in the sun. Here’s the lineup.
