THE 2022 Summer Sound Music Festival in Guisborough saw one of the biggest line-ups of tribute acts in the North East at the weekend.

This year, the festival was held at Guisborough Rugby Club, in a change from previous years at Gisborough Priory.

The weekend kicked off on Friday evening with a 60s, 70s and 80s party featuring tributes to some of the biggest artists in the world with ABBA, The Bee Gees, Dolly Parton, Elvis and Madonna. Hosted by DJ Murray Mint the music ranged from disco, to country, to rock and roll and pop.

Saturday was a full day of live music hosted by Zetland FM, showcasing the best in rock and pop with tributes to artists including The Killers, Madness, Lady Gaga, Take That, Coldplay, and Amy Winehouse, plus support from local band, The Fallen.

It was an entertaining weekend with licensed bars, cocktail bars, a food village, festival stalls, street entertainers, funfair, fireworks and much more. The event proved very popular, with more than 3,500 visitors from all over Teesside and beyond.

Friday stayed fine but the few spells of drizzle that arrived on Saturday afternoon failed to dampen the spirits of the lively crowd. Many brought picnics and drinks and cover was available around the ground. Most brought seats and came prepared with umbrellas and coats just in case.
