Lots of people have a great love for their local music scene and collectively recognise that local music is so important to jump start a lot of musicians’ careers.

Therefore, this makes it significant to the music industry as a whole.

TUxtra spoke with events organiser, Adam Sullivan, about his event ‘GAST’ and how important the music scene in Middlesbrough is.

If you want to make it to the next ‘GAST’ event, you can get tickets via the Facebook. event page or by visiting and searching GAST.
