The unstoppable Futureheads are leading the dance with their Split Festival Christmas Special.

Following the success of Summer’s Split Festival, the organisers have begun to programme a series of musical and culinary events, which will take place throughout the year in Sunderland.

The plan is to supplement their annual music festival, which is held every Summer at Ashbrooke Sport Club and give Wearside an excuse to party on a regular basis.

The first of these events will be the Split Festival Christmas Special which will take place on December 10 at the Sunderland University venue, North Shore.

The lineup features live music from The Futureheads, Hyde & Beast and B>E>A.K and an aftershow club night with a DJ set from Frankie & The Heartstrings.

There will also be drinks promos and festive themed food, from BBC Masterchef finalist Stacie Stewart. Tickets are only £12.50 in advance.

Split’s Barry Hyde, who is also front man of The Futureheads, can’t wait to play his beloved home city: “This gig is going to be a very special night. The Futureheads haven't played a headline gig in Sunderland since September 2010! Far too long!”

In fact Barry will be performing in all three bands on December 10. He plays keyboards in Hyde & Beast, who are fronted by his younger brother Dave and the multi-instrumentalist will also be making a special guest appearance with B
Barry said: “I’m really looking forward to playing with Hyde and Beast, and the wonderful B
