Music Box Festival 2017

Last year's festival was an absolute triumph so we're back with an equally amazing line up, and a couple of new stages.

On Sunday 11th June, Hash Bar, Hole In The Wall & Avalon, in association with Fifth Arch Brewery, bring you 30+ acts, 5 stages & 1 whole day of fun. It's a massive celebration of music, the vibrant North-East music scene, and Darlington. It's going to be great.

Tickets are £7 ADV // £10 OTD - Available from venues and by clicking here:
