Gateshead's TUSK Festival will return later this year for its seventh edition and the first bunch of acts set to play have now been confirmed, led by Beatrice Dillon and Brainbombs.

The latter's set will mark the first ever UK show from the Swedish punkers, while Beatrice Dillon's set will no doubt see her continue to push at the boundaries of techno and related strands of electronic music. Also set to play are Klein, California duo Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet, Kink Gong, Edinburgh group Shareholder, Staraya Derevnya and ÈLG.

The festival returns to Sage Gateshead from October 13-15, and promises as adventurous as ever a line-up, with organisers continuing to look forward with the acts that they book spanning across various genres. More acts will be announced in the coming months, but for now you can find more information and get tickets here.
