We are really really sorry to announce that this year’s Summertyne Festival is cancelled. We had all the outdoor stage booked & we were very much looking forward to celebrating the joint anniversary’s of 15 years Sage Americana Summertyne /35 years J’Hot Club.
Here’s Sage Gateshead’s official statement

We are very sad to say that owing to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it has become impossible to proceed with our planned announcement of SummerTyne Americana Festival in 2020, so we have taken the difficult decision to cancel for 2020. Our team worked incredibly hard to bring you an outstanding line-up, and we are bitterly disappointed. However, although we are not able to bring you these artists as part of our much loved festival, we 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 we have worked through the process of rescheduling. Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
