The Human League join Evolution line-up

The Human League are among the latest names for this year's Evolution Festival, as the event completes its line-up.

Ebony Bones will be taking her Tropicana pop to the north east of England as well as local bands Detroit Social Club and Little Comet.

Speaking about booking The Human League, festival director Jim Mawdsley said: "The Human League are a major coup for us and remain hugely relevant to today’s music scene.  Many of the acts playing Evolution this year have been influenced by them and will be proud to be sharing the same stage.
"We're also thrilled to have two additional local bands joining Stockton band The Chapman Family on the bill – all three are fast gaining national and international acclaim and it’s great that we can showcase their talents here in the region."

The Wombats and Dizzee Rascal headline the two-day festival with Boys Noize, Mystery Jets, The View, The Maccabees and more set to perform.

Organisers have also announced the day-by-day and stage breakdowns.
