Tickets have gone on sale for the hotly-anticipated first-ever All Square Festival coming to Darlington this May Bank Holiday.
From Friday 4th to Sunday 6th May, Darlington’s Market Square will play host to a three-day music, comedy and entertainment extravaganza, with four different events brought to the masses, in a joint collaboration between festival organisers Boomerang Events and Guisborough’s Summer Sound Tribute Music Festival.
Big names including Ibiza’s saxophone sensation Lovely Laura, Glitterbox DJ Ben Santiago, Retro’s Paul Taylor, Livin’ Joy of ‘I’m a dreamer’ fame and some of the best live tribute acts from around the country, along with Raver Tots and Bingo Revolution events, will be bringing the party to the town throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.
Jordan Jefferson, Director of Boomerang Events, said: “There really is something for everyone, and we’ve put a twist on every event. This is going to be three days of non-stop fun and the best part is that the full family can get involved.”
Day one kicks off on the Friday night with Bingo Revolution, a modern spin on the classic game with comedy, music, mischief and mayhem, while day two sees the hugely popular Summer Sound Tribute Music Festival showcase some of the UK’s best live tribute acts including Oasis, Queen, The Beatles, Ed Sheeran and Pink as they take to the stage to cover the biggest songs of all time.
The beginning of day three has something for everyone with Raver Tots, a unique event for parents and toddlers. To the sounds of classic house legends K-Klass, children can enjoy a huge range of soft play, arts and crafts and activities.
Jordan said: “It’s great to be working alongside Raver Tots to bring something different to the region. The group is now a huge brand with a national following, some of their videos have over 1.5m views on Youtube, so it’s definitely one not to miss!”
But the music doesn’t stop there, as kicking off at 5pm is DNCE Music’s big finale with a huge line-up of world class dance music sensations.
Lovely Laura and DJ Ben Santiago will be bringing a slice of the White Isle from their renowned headline spot at Ocean Beach Club in Ibiza, while acts including Retro’s Paul Taylor, Livin’ Joy, DJ John Jones, DJ Jordan and Peverell will be taking to the DJ booth to spin the biggest party anthems and dance floor classics.
Jordan added: “We wanted to bring a festival unlike any other to Darlington and I think with the line-up we’ve put together, we’re able to do just that.
Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago can usually be found headlining at iconic parties all over the world! Last time this pair showed up in Darlington their event sold out in days and of course, Retro head honcho, Paul Taylor, is known by pretty much everyone in the North East for his classic house events.
“We’ve already had a fantastic response to the festival since it was announced and tickets are selling really well.”
The events will be held in a large marquee within Darlington’s Market Square and a variety of food and drink vendors will be available throughout the weekend.
Jordan said: “Because there really is something for everyone, we’ve priced things slightly differently. Alongside our early bird and group discount tickets, unlike most other festivals you can literally just pick the events you want to attend and pay the ticket price for that directly.
“Earlybird tickets have already sold out for both the Saturday and Sunday night events, so if you want to come along you’ll have to be quick!”
