St Mary's Square, Gateshead Quays, Gateshead, NE8 2JR
Known as an international home for musical discovery – the Sage is the gig venue of your dreams. A landmark on The Quayside, set right on the banks of the Tyne, this spectacular building is iconic in shape. It’s, basically, one big, glass rugby ball along the water – built this way for the acoustics. This gigantic concert hall houses two main stages - which have seen the likes of big name stars, as well as the BBC Radio 6 Music Festival - alongside four bars, a café, brasserie (how posh) and 26 music rooms for students. Any and every kind of music is played here; indie, rock, pop, classical, acoustic, country, folk, jazz, electronic and dance, and entry is free – we’ll see you there.
