Deathprod, Horse Lords and more will play the Gateshead event

TUSK Festival has confirmed its first wave of acts playing this October's edition.

Deathprod will bring his recently released album, Occulting Disk, to Gateshead for a live appearance, while Horse Lords will also feature, in the wake of soon-to-be-released album The Common Task.

The festival's first announcement for 2020 also features a rare Northern appearance from Maja S.K. Ratkje, as well as the supergroup combination of Charles Hayward, Laura Cannell and Ex-Easter Island Head that makes up Whistling Arrow. It's completed by Sarah Hennies and Newcastle trio Lump Hammer.

2020 marks the 10th edition of TUSK, which will take place at Sage Gateshead from October 9-11. Find more information and ticket links here.
