The sun was shining on Central park in Newcastle for the Central Park Festival. Opening up the festival with her lush vocals, Lizzie Esau and her band where the perfect act to start the afternoon off. With amazing guitar riffs and a sweet tone to the bass and drums, she had the crowd singing and dancing to her music.

The second band up was Birmingham four-piece The Clause. This was the first time I have seen them perform and at first inspection, the collective style of the band suggested they could have provided any sound. Synth pop, folk you name it. But as any good band should; they let the instruments do the talking with gripping electronics, chaotic guitar creating a great energy in the crowd.

Next on stage were The Royston Club bringing the crowd together and getting them on their feet and singing and dancing along with the lead singer feeding off the energy from the crowd whipped up by the band’s loud guitar riffs and bass along with the pounding drums.

The Mysteries took to the stage next and as their music sifted through the speakers in true style to their Liverpool background they took the crowd with them as they launched into a set of sophisticated tunes lifted from their excellent debut which sound monstrous in size.

The last band I caught were Kawala who brought their good feeling energy to the festival. There’s an infectious quality to the band – not just their undeniably catchy array of pop bangers, but also their energy and the sheer delight of being able to stand on stage night after night delivering a really nice show
