Today is "Hit The North" Festival which should be a celebration of our venue infrastructure and talent in the North East. However organisers, SSD Concerts have failed to sufficiently address ongoing claims of abuse which has led to many artists rightly pulling out of the festival. We are putting on a free show at Head of Steam 23/10/21 for a number of artists let down by the organiser and need help with costs that these artists will lose out on. We also hope to raise enough to help working crew etc who will alos be losing out after whats been a terrible time for this industry over the last 2 years. Any help is appreciated, the North East is better than this and we can rebuild our scene.
