Herrington Country Park
Tyne & Wear
Kubix Festival began as an effort by a group of local promoters to delivery 1st class quality entertainment by sensational recording artists, at a price that won’t hurt your pocket! We’re fans ourselves and want to see live music remain as accessible as possible to all fans, which is why we keep our prices so reasonable for such brilliant line-ups!
We're back in 2019 and we've got a fantastic event planned, as we're busy working on lots of improvements to make 2019's Kubix, the best festival possible.
Parking is FREE and available within Herrington Country Park. On your arrival, our Stewards will direct you to the appropriate parking area (VIP Guests will have access to a separate parking area even closer to the event).
Shuttle bus services will be improved next year and will run continuously back and forth throughout the event, running to and from nearby cities, delivering you to the door of the event. A small charge will be made to cover the costs of this service, but again, we’ve kept it to an absolute minimum!
Also, new for 2019 will be a second stage in a huge big top which will operate as a fantastic dance tent on Friday night, featuring some top DJs from the region and as a second stage on Saturday, with some of the finest north east bands out there.
Certainly! Kubix Festival is a family friendly event and children of all ages are welcome! Junior tickets allow access, at a reduced price, for children aged 15 and under, provided they are accompanied by a responsible Adult over the age of 18. Children 5 and under are free and do not require a ticket.
