Headliners for Evolution Festival 2012 have been named as Dizzee Rascal and Deadmau5, with support from the likes of Maximo Park, Noah and the Whale and Rizzle Kicks.  The festival will be held on Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th June – the same weekend as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  Thanks to this national holiday, revellers will be able to nurse their sore heads on Tuesday rather than returning to work.

Also confirmed to play are Miles Kane, Devlin, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Spector and Jessie Ware.  DJ sets will come from the likes of Jack Beats, Shy FX, Toddla T and Dot Rotten.  Taking place at Gateshead Quayside, the outdoor stages aren’t the only attraction at the festival.  More information is yet to be released on the Evolution Emerging stage and Jumpin’ Hot Club, which will be staging shows in various venues around Gateshead.
