In the run up to Tusk's main event later this year, the Newcastle festival is holding Tusk Mini, a one dayer on 12 July at Newcastle's Star & Shadow. Confirmed for the day are Swedish underground group No Balls, Italo-Belgian duo Lumisokea, and Nick Mitchell's guitar seven piece, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura.
It'll be the first time some of these groups have played in the UK, and there's the possibility that London dates will be confirmed in the coming weeks. More artists to be confirmed. Info and tickets on the Tusk site.
