On Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August Mish Mash Festival will return to Darlington Market Square for a weekend long mega music marathon with a mish mash of genres, packed with enough performances to transform the Market Square into the Darlo dancefloor of dreams.

Everything from gypsy folk to flamenco, afrobeat to ska will be on offer so bring the whole family down for an exciting, diverse mish mash of live music and activities in the Market Square.

Brought to you in partnership with Tracks, Big Little Gigs and Darlington Borough Council, visitors can take a trip around the world with food and drinks stalls, interactive workshops and a main stage featuring amazing artists throughout the day across a global palette of genres.

Headlining the Saturday are the Leeds based Shades Collective celebrating dance music classics with a full live band and orchestral twist. Playing House, Garage, Jungle & D&B anthems. There will also be hip hop from Darlington’s Shakk opening the festival, Mathias Skye bringing his own blend of RnB, Hip-Hop and acoustic sounds, beautiful jazzy summer vibes from Newcastle’s Frankie Jobling plus indie 80s influenced dream pop from Club Paradise.

Sunday at Mish Mash Festival focuses more on world music styles staying true to Mish Mash Festival’s roots of bringing the world to Darlington. Headliners are the epic Baghdaddies who’s exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to. Also gracing Sunday’s stage are Darlington favourites Blind Panic Ceilidh Band, make sure you’re ready for a dance, The Belta Rievers playing Geordie folk songs, summer trad jazz from Sunnyside Jazz and Bluegrass brilliance from The Often Heard.
