Formerly Middlesbrough Live festival...
Music Live has provided a whole load of fantastic memories for so many people over the last decade. Now we're back with a new name and a best ever line-up, and hopefully there will be plenty more great memories to come.
From the Kaiser Chiefs to Biffy Clyro, Florence and the Machine to Kasabian, the festival has built an enviable reputation for spotting the next wave of great live bands, and we're sure that 2011 will prove no exception. Some of the most exciting new bands in the world are playing right here on your doorstep. The best part of 100 acts across a dozen stages, right in the heart of Middlesbrough. But it's not just about new talent. This year we've upped the big name quotient, and our clutch of headline acts can boast over 50 hit singles between them. Plenty of familiar tunes to sing along to then!
