Waves doubled in size

19 October 2021

Independent Live is excited to announce an additional 11 artists who will be joining the line-up for Sunderland’s all new multi-venue music festival, Waves.

The already stacked line-up has now more than doubled in size with the addition of more of the region’s most exciting and promising artists. 

Joining the line-up are Sunderland’s own Roxy Girls, rapper Sagaboi and punk trio Casual Threats as well as Ani Sandiwith, Elizabeth Liddle, James Leonard Hewitson, Kickin’ Lilies, Leopard Rays, Pit Pony, Point Blanc and Yusuf.

The one-day event will take place on Saturday 6 November across city centre venues Independent, The Peacock, Live Lounge, The Bunker and The Ship Isis with a line-up consisting of the very best of local music, curated by Independent Live and Dent Records.

Independent Live’s Ben Richardson said: “We’re getting really excited now as we head into the run up to the first ever edition of Waves. It’s great to be able to add some more of our favourite new acts to the bill and it’s even greater knowing that we’ve still got more to announce including a really cool partnership with one of Sunderland’s best new music organisations.”

Tickets for the festival are priced at £10 and available to buy online here and in person at Hot Rats Records, The Ship Isis and The Little Shop on High Street West, Sunderland.
