New Musical Express

Yep, its festival time again — those wacky groupings of performers and performed-upon The Geordie accents will be out in strength along with that old favourite Newcastle Brown at Gateshead International Stadium where on Saturday Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, U2, The Polecats, Pauline Murray, Huang Chung and Doll By Doll will shuffle their soft shoes under the "Rock On The Tyne" banner. They make way for tradition on Sunday when Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, local locals Lindisfarne and Ginger's Nutters, among others trade their wares.

The full Reading Festival line up appeared in NME on July 18th so there's no need to go through that all again — Girlschool headline on Friday and heavy metal rules the Reading weekend.
