Iggy and Plan B to headline Evolution

By | Published on Wednesday 1 December 2010

Organisers of Newcastle’s Evolution Festival, which takes place over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, have announced that Iggy & The Stooges and Plan B will headline next year’s bash. But we’re untrusting sorts here at CMU, so we got on the phone to Iggy and, erm, Plan, to check this was so. 

Plan B said: “I’m really looking forward to the Evolution Festival, if only because every time we have played Newcastle it has always gone off!”, while Iggy said: “I’m ready to get down and rave like a Geordie” and then “we are all deranged spitfires, do you wanna dance?” Which I think is as close as you get to confirmation from Mr Pop. 

Evolution takes place in Newcastle on the 28 and 29 May. Tickets are £35 for the two days. If I wanted more information about this I’d go to
