Rock N Roll Circus is a spectacle unlike anything you've seen before. Think Glastonbury meets Cirque du Soleil, as some of the biggest stars in music take to the stage alongside tightrope walkers, jugglers, ringmasters and fortune tellers.

The event is the first of its kind and is set to completely revolutionise the festival scene and usher in a new era of entertainment.  

Last year it was announced that the inaugural Rock N Roll Circus would be heading to the Town Moor in Newcastle for two nights of music and entertainment, and it did not disappoint.

Now, after a wildly successful first outing, the show is back again for 2023. Keep reading to find out everything we know so far about this 2023 rock and roll extravaganza, as well as how you can secure tickets to the event.

What Happened at Rock N Roll Circus 2022?

The inaugural Rock N Roll Circus took over the Town Moor in Newcastle back in 2022 for two nights of music and mesmerising circus performances. The event was a raging success, leaving the fans in attendance wanting more.

The event has been labelled as a ‘Masterstroke’, as its innovative blend of music and circus treated fans to a fantastically unique spectacle and made for a truly special experience.

The festival line-up was a real treat for fans of indie rock, as some of the genre's most popular and iconic bands took to the stage across the weekend.

The first night's festivities were opened up by Geordie sensation Andrew Cushin, who really got the Newcastle crowd going with some original hits, before handing over to the electro duo from down under Confidence Man.

Tim Burgess and The Charlatans took to the stage next and whipped the crowd into a frenzy, before main man and Oasis legend Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds took to the stage for their headline set.

Noel did what he does best and put on an incredible performance, with the crowd in the palm of his hand for the entire show.

The second night features even more indie heavyweights, with sibling singers ZELA opening the show, followed by The Reytons. Later in the night, Aussie superstars DMA’S produced a trademark all-timer performance before bowing out for Britpop royalty The Libertines to close the festival off in style.      

In between the sets of these incredible artists, the fans were treated to incredible stunts from aerialists, fire dancers and stilt walkers just to name a few, meaning that there was no downtime in between shows.

When and Where is Rock N Roll Circus 2023?

The Rock N Roll Circus will stay situated in the north of the UK in 2023, as the next instalment of the highly anticipated event is scheduled to take place at the Don Valley Bowl, Sheffield.

While the 2022 Rock N Roll Circus took place midway through June, the 2023 event is set to be the final big outdoor bash of the summer, taking place at the beginning of September.

The organisers of the ground-breaking event have also decided to step it up a gear this year, opting for a three-day event rather than just two. The first day will be Friday the 1st of September, with days two and three taking place on the second and third.
