Owing to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it has become impossible to proceed with the planned announcement of SummerTyne Americana Festival in 2020, so the difficult decision has been made to cancel for 2020. Although we are not able to bring you these artists as part of the much loved festival, Sage Gateshead are working hard to reschedule some of the booked artists later in the year and into the Spring of 2021. This means that you can expect a bumper season of fantastic Americana music into the Autumn and beyond, more details of which will follow once Sage Gateshead has worked through the process of rescheduling. Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
SummerTyne Americana Festival at Sage Gateshead is an annual must-do live music festival on the banks of the River Tyne which usually takes place in mid-July. Take a look at what happened at the festival in 2019 and we will let you know the dates for SummerTyne Americana Festival 2020 as soon as they are announced!
