About Us

Crack Festival 2019 is for live performance that lives between the cracks

We’re a space for new artists to make their mark, for new art to flourish, and for exploring and engaging with Newcastle.

Last year we celebrated our 10th birthday in the only way we know how – by doing new things, with a new name, and a new team. We presented 76 events across 4 days and supported over 60 artists.

And 2019 will be no different. We’ve got new partnerships, new programs, and new ideas. So put the 2019 Festival dates in your diary if you want to see the performance pioneers of tomorrow make their debuts, and witness fervent acts of genius that you can’t begin to describe afterwards, but you know could only exist in that space and time, in Newcastle, at TiNA, at Crack Festival.
