Hailing from Minnesota, USA, indie-rock four-piece Hippo Campus are a band in fine form. Currently touring their headline show on the back of ‘Bambi’, the band’s latest studio album, they make their way to Newcastle’s celebrated Riverside venue this month.
Named as one of NPR Music’s favourite new artists of 2017, Hippo Campus have earned a great deal of success in recent years, including playing a series of acclaimed shows at SXSW which were immediately followed by their network television debut on ‘Conan’. In 2015, Reading and Leeds Festival beckoned and shortly after the band released their critically acclaimed EP, ‘South’.
Hippo Campus surely are an exciting prospect. Be sure to catch them on their only North East performance this month.
Hippo Campus play Riverside, Newcastle on Saturday 16th February with doors opening at 19:00. Tickets, priced at £16.50 (inc. booking fee), are available to purchase online at seetickets.com. Ages 14+ only.
