Tomorrow’s Ghost Festival Announce First Artists

Ghostwriter Consultancy & Events is pleased to confirm that the festival which is unafraid to paint the town black will return to Whitby for Halloween next year


The ultimate celebration of all things gothic and alternative, returns to its spiritual home between Friday 29th & Sunday 30th October 2022.

Alluring artists from across Europe & the USA, the first acts to be announced who will be haunting the hallowed halls of the Whitby Pavilion in 2022 are Into A Circle, Ghost Dance, Balaam And The Angel, Evil Blizzard, Bootblacks and All My Thorns. The festivals headliners are to be announced.

In a bonafide festival exclusive, audiences will witness a performance from reunited special guests: Into A Circle, in what will be their first show since 1989.  The noir new wave band of Paul “Bee” Hampshire and Barry Jepson will return to the stage in what is certain to be an emotional comeback. The duo, once of the legendary post/punk band Getting The Fear, will be digging into their past including cuts from their seminal debut album ‘Assassins’, and even revealing brand new studio material for the very first time.

Also joining the bill will be very special guests and goth rock originals Ghost Dance & Balaam And The Angel. Evil Blizzard will present their sensory-blitzing annual show ‘Blizzoween’. Preston’s grimmest gang have a hard-earned reputation as one of the most ingenious and charismatic live experiences on the music scene today.


Elsewhere on the bill, New York City’s new favourite nocturnal noiseniks Bootblacks will be flying into the festival. Modern-day goth scene flag-bearers All My Thorns, comprising members of Soma Dawn and Sometime The Wolf, will be packing-in progressive new age goth / metal cuts galore



Previous editions have hosted acts including Wayne Hussey & The Divine, Peter Hook & The Light, New Model Army, Paradise Lost, Fields of the Nephilim, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Chameleons, Pink Turns Blue, Salvation, Evi Vine, The Membranes, The Eden House, Sometime The Wolf, The Society, Terminal Gods, Sweet Ermengarde, Saigon Blue Rain, Christine Plays Viola, Mercury’s Antennae and Clan of Xymox.



We are excited to report that we are in advanced discussions with the Bram Stoker Estate in the UK and America to agree a partnership to explore the enormous legacy of Bram Stoker and how this can become part of the Festival. Both parties hope to announce details in due course.

The festival is on general sale from Friday November 26th, 2021

Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra postponed

Rescheduled to Saturday 25th June 2022

New live act to be announced in due course to perform at this year’s Newcastle Racecourse’s Northumberland Plate Day, which continues to go ahead on Saturday 26th June 2021

In response to the Government’s recent release of their road map we have been working away behind the scenes to continue to deliver our Live After Racing schedule of events. Unfortunately, despite the planned reopening of large-scale events from 21st June, Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra’s Ibiza Classics Live After Racing performance at Newcastle Racecourse during the Saturday of the famous Northumberland Plate Festival will be rescheduled to Saturday 25th June 2022. Newcastle Racecourse’s Northumberland Plate Festival continues to go ahead as scheduled in 2021 with crowds and we are working hard with our Live After Racing team towards announcing the new live line up for the event.

Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra’s Ibiza Classics’ ground-breaking event includes a very large production involving a 65-piece orchestra, taking weeks of rehearsals to perfect the flawless show. Due to the scale of the concert, the safety of the crew and musicians is paramount and therefore the logistics involved with rehearsing this type of concert, with COVID-19 restrictions, prior to 21st June is not possible. Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra are therefore rescheduling all of their June dates, which unfortunately affects the Newcastle show.

Mark Spincer, Managing Director, ARC Racing Division comments:

‘We’re sorry to announce that due to the current public health situation, Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra’s live After racing performance at Newcastle Racecourse is being postponed and rescheduled for Saturday 25th June 2022. Whilst we understand that fans will be disappointed that this show will not be taking place after this year’s Northumberland Plate Day, we are certain it will be worth the wait. We can’t wait to welcome this spectacular performance of amazing musicianship, epic production and stunning visual effects to Newcastle Racecourse for what is sure to be a breathtaking event.

“In the meantime, we are confident that we’ll be able to secure another great live music act to keep our customers entertained after racing on Saturday 26thJune 2021, which continues to go ahead this year”.

Pete Tong said:

‘Myself and Jules Buckley are so excited to be bringing the orchestra and Ibiza Classics to Newcastle Racecourse in 2022. The past year has been so unpredictable, but we continue….and I guarantee this will be a night to remember, dust off your raving shoes!”
