We will have local artists involved, some of whom will be offering covers of the music played at Live Aid. All our food on-site will be affordably priced and we welcome anyone.

In the lead up to next year's festival we are running two smaller Smile For Val events this year to raise money.

WELCOME TO SMILE WIDE TOGETHER, 2024

A brand new, two-day music festival for 2024 created by local people of the North East looking to support friends, families and the local music scene, with all profits going to the homeless and hospices. 

A celebration of the lives we have and the ones we have lost through the power of music. We have begun curating an exciting and entertaining two days of live music from local talent to the North East, during Summer 2024. 

We welcome anyone and everyone who has had a loss within their lives or wants to support those who have.
