Kraak & Smaak

Kraak & Smaak

Dutch producers, DJ’s and live act Kraak & Smaak have built up a jaw-dropping track record since their first EP dropped in the early 00s: five studio albums, four remix albums and a long string of singles and remixes on labels such as Jalapeno Records, Ultra and Spinnin’.

Their original sound, consisting of a blend of disco, funk, electronic and house music, has also brought their DJ sets and the live band to all corners of the world and on festivals such as Glastonbury, SXSW and Coachella.​




Newcastle’s legendary STONELOVE and BULLETPROOF DJs Aaron Mellor and Tallest Paul will play the greatest sea-worthy Indie Rock 'n' Roll soundtrack.

The weekend is dedicated to the memory of Big Niall, legendary DJ at both Stonelove and Bulletproof and a great fan and friend of Peter Hook.
