The full line-up has now been revealed for brand new music and comedy festival, Last Train Home, which takes place in Darlington on Saturday 22nd September.
The festival utilises the venues/spaces around the train station (including Theatre Hullabaloo, Hogans, St John the Evangelist church, The Greyhound, Bank Top Central & Legacy Skate Store) as well as Darlington’s excellent transport links, showcasing a plethora of touring, regional & local talent and finishing in time for festival-goers to catch the last train home.
David Saunders from Tracks explains where the inspiration for the event came from: “Darlington’s transport links are some of the best in the region and lately the town has been undergoing a cultural renaissance. We just thought it would be a great idea to hold a really exciting music and comedy festival to celebrate and showcase what is going on, but also have the festival timings revolving around the train timetable so that people from surrounding areas can come down and enjoy the fun.”
Trains, transport and concept to one side, the variety and quality that the festival offers is unlike anything the town has seen before, with a high calibre of both nationally and regionally recognised artists performing throughout the day.
The likes of Manchester five-piece Pins, Futureheads frontman/soloist Barry Hyde, Doncaster-based three-piece Bang Bang Romeo and a plethora of artists will all be heading to Darlington for this prestigious event.
