The North Shields singer-songwriter and The Bonny singer have both been confirmed to top the bill at the Newcastle festival.

This Is Tomorrow have confirmed two headline acts for 2020.

The North East's largest outdoor music festival, which takes place at Newcastle's Exhibition Park from 22-24 May, has announced Gerry Cinnamon and Sam Fender as its first two headliners.

The Scottish singer-songwriter will headline the Saturday night of the festival, while the Hypersonic Missiles rocker will close the three-day event with a homecoming show.

The third and final headliner, who will play the Friday night of the Festival, is yet to be announced.

Tickets for the festival go on sale from Friday 6 December at 10am.

Reacting to today's announcement, Festival Organiser Steve Davis, said: "With Friday's headliners and the full line-up for all days still to be added, we're confident this will be one of the stand-out  live music events in the country for 2020."

Meanwhile, both breakout acts are set for headline shows next year, with Sam Fender playing the likes of London's Alexandra Palace, and Gerry Cinnamon following suit.
