It’s all aboard for the Last Train Home Festival which pulls into Darlington on 4 September. On board will be four stages at The Forum and The Hullabaloo filled with amazing live music and comedy.

Hullabaloo will be home to the Narc Magazine acoustic stage and the Noisy Daughters main stage plus the Forum Music Centre hosting Hilarity Bites Comedy stage and the festival main stage.

Headlining the Noisy Daughter’s stage is Martha Hill and her band. Main support for Martha Hill will be Hurworth’s Jodie Nicholson who has received plays on Radio 1 and 6Music. Headlining over at The Forum main stage are Coventry band ‘Feet’ bringing their edgy, art rock fun, plus main support from local grunge-punk duo ‘Mouses’. Other artists on festival bill include Darlington’s Wax Heart Sodality, Zela, Garden Party, Ceiling Demons, Pave The Jungle, Elaine Palmer, Lizzie Esau and many more!

There will also be a Last Train Home launch event at Darlington’s Head Of Steam museum on Thursday the 2nd September featuring headliner Ceitidh Mac. Ceitidh (gaelic for Katie) blends the warming tones of the cello and soaring vocals to create a transformative sound that puts a progressive twist on the alt folk genre. Support comes from George Boomsma, an exquisite guitarist with beautiful vocals, and Darlington’s own Hayley McKay.

There will also be an option to buy a live streaming ticket for those who are unable to attend the festival in person, full details will be available soon on their website.
