Ho. Ho. Ho...

...WE'RE BACK with a festive Music Box spin off on Sunday 17th December, imaginatively called 'X-mas Box'. It's a yuletide micro-fest (in association with Fifth Arch Brewery, Tracks & Butterfly Effect) that showcases the North-East's finest musical performers and includes beautiful decorations, Christmas film projections, seasonal food and drinks as well as other X-mas surprises.

There are three stages in two venues, each with their own theme...

Winter Wonderland Stage (Avalon) – An enchanted outdoor utopia of epic/melodic/roots inspired indie.
The Circus Villains – Rock ‘n’ soul.
Abel Raise The Cain - Epic, orchestral, indie-rock.
Sonder Minds – Lo-fi, tender-psych.
The Broken Broadcast – Dreampop/indie-folk.
The Dead Seat – uplifting gospel meets chain-gang blues.

Retro Yuletide Stage (Avalon) – Christmas nostalgia soundtracked by 80’s influenced, synth fuelled, electro-pop.
Twist Helix - Euphoric synth explosion.
Ronald Raygun - Experimental groovy electro.
Lost State of Dance – A megatronic rave up.
Shamu – Atmospheric alt-pop.
The Shooting Of - Heartfelt pop music.

Rooftop Grotto Stage (Hash Bar and Kitchen) – A secret, festive hideaway with intimate acoustic, folk & pop performances.
Ridley Woof – Jazz tainted alt-pop.
George Boomsma – Sensitive alt-folk.
Eve Conway - Gritty urban soul.
Danny Devon - Acoustic indie-folk.
Aubrey Esme – Acid folk.
Anna Stephens - Melodic piano-pop.

Oh and if that's not enough, there's an aftershow party at Hole in the Wall.
