The band play the first ever festival to take place in the city’s Exhibition Park.

From DIY cover stars Foals and The Vaccines, to newer favourites whenyoung, Anteros and Pip Blom, Newcastle’s Exhibition Park is set to host some musical behemoths this weekend, as This Is Tomorrow takes over. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Stereophonics, Johnny Marr and Ride are also among the big names playing across the weekend, which will be the first of its kind taking place in the city.

Last seen with sixth studio album - the appropriately-named ‘VI’ - You Me At Six are gearing up for another summer of festivals, including playing alongside Foals on the opening day of This Is Tomorrow. Ahead of their slot, we caught up with them for a quickfire chat about preparations…

Hello there! What’s new in the world of You Me At Six?
We’re gearing up for festival season. Working on music and just preparing for the next few months.

What’s involved in getting ready for this summer, then?
Putting together the different set lists that we need to have. Our set lengths will be quite varied across the summer and we’ve got a lot of material to choose from.

Do you have any particularly memorable past visits to Newcastle?
It’s an amazing city with a lot of character. The people have always been a lot of fun and the shows always go off. It’s an amazing line up and we can’t wait to be back!

You Me At Six play This Is Tomorrow on Friday 24th May at 7.30pm.
