Evolution Festival


The Evolution Festival

The Evolution Festival Known locally as ‘Evo’, is a music festival held annually in areas across Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gateshead, England since 2002. Its centre-piece is a four-stage event (Including the Emerging stage, which hosts the cream of the North-East’s unsigned talent) held on Spring Bank Holiday Monday at three sites beside the River Tyne, though the festival also incorporates a series of other performances at venues around Newcastle and Gateshead in the preceding week. It has previously been known as Orange Evolution due to sponsorship by the Mobile Phone company Orange. The outdoor elements of the event has subsequently been known as Freevolution and then 3volution, when a charge was introduced.
