TUSK Festival, which takes place at Sage Gateshead this October 12-14, has announced its final line-up additions.

10 new artists have joined the bill, including New York musician and sound artist Lea Bertucci, who will perform both a live set and her surround sound piece 'Double Bass Crossfade', while elsewhere UK experimental stars Adam Bohman and Lee Patterson will perform a rare collaboration.

The 'Rajasthan Live Cinema', described as "a disorienting audio-visual journey through the sights and sounds of an Indian camel fair in the holy town of Pushkar" will be remixed and manipulated live by Seb Bassleer and Maarten van der Glas, while South London's Dale Cornish, Baltimore's Marlo Eggplant and self-declared 'Cardboard Prince' Robert Ridley-Shackleton will all perform sets of their own.

Completing the new announcement are Manchester improvisational four-piece Historically Fucked, elusive Stoke-On-Trent duo Saboteuse, Newcastle sound artist Pinnel and Welsh musician Ash Cooke, performing as Chow Mwng.

These new additions join the likes of the legendary Terry Riley with his son Gyan, Tokyo hero Otomo Yoshihide, Craig Leon performing his electronica suite Nommos with a string quartet, and many more.
