Some of the most exciting and innovative women making music in the UK today are coming together for Substance Live: The Future Of The North – a major music event being staged in Hull as one of the last big events of its City of Culture year.
Substance Live is a music festival celebrating the future of the north through the music of some of our most innovative and forward-thinking artists.
Join us for an evening of music representing a state of the nation in terms of the best northern sounds of now.
The festival includes the politically charged post-punk of Nadine Shah, the psychedelic dream pop of Jane Weaver, an electronic/brass band intergalactic odyssey courtesy of Hannah Peel, the performance art punk of Lone Taxidermist, all female four piece PINS, sister doom duo CHAMBERS and the homegrown freak folk of The Dyr Sister.
The evening is hosted by 6Music’s and Radio 3’s Elizabeth Alker.
This is a celebration of the diverse and ground-breaking talent that the North always has and always will produce.

Nadine Shah – 8.45pm – 9.30pm. MAIN STAGE
Armed with a uniquely rich and soulful voice, paired with her effortlessly eloquent and arresting lyrics, Nadine Shah has earned a reputation as a rising, uncompromising talent.
Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia (Hannah Peel) – 7.30pm – 8.15pm. MAIN STAGE
Electronic artist, arranger and composer Hannah Peel’s work combines the tremendously deep, rich power of traditional brass with the uplifting arpeggiated patterns and unearthly sound textures of analogue synthesizers.
PINS – 8.15pm – 8.45pm. B STAGE
PINS are at the vanguard of the New Wave of British guitar Rock and Roll firing out noisy, textured pop – a heady mix of Hole, Jesus and Mary Chain and Beach House. The all female five piece were formed in Manchester in 2011 and signed to the iconic Bella Union label. They are a melodic northern powerhouse!
CHAMBERS – 6.30pm – 7.00pm. MAIN STAGE
CHAMBERS are a two piece sister doom band from Hull and Leeds. The name in itself is a reflection of their desire to peek inside Pandora’s Box. When you think of a chamber it makes you wonder: What’s inside? What does it look like? What’s it for? The duo are signed to Nottingham based label I’m Not From London Records.
The duo have been named a ‘a hard hitting, unforgiving duo” by Radio 1, whilst Alt Press describe their sound as “a noise-rock sensibility where Girls Against Boys, Deap Vally and Placebo are protecting their favourite bar from horders of hipster vermin and gentrified scum”.
Lone Taxidermist – 7pm – 7.30pm. B STAGE
Fresh from the twisted machinations and fertile imagination of Cumbrian-born, London-dwelling artist and seer Natalie Sharp has created Lone Taxidermist. A chaotic realm of poisonous cocktails, thwarted lust. 6am dancehalls and a cast of characters standing on the verge of epiphany.
The Dyr Sister – 6.00pm – 6.30pm. B STAGE
Hailing from the City of Hull, England, Sally Currie AKA The Dyr Sister is a multi-instrumental cervine beat mistress who conjures up surreal tales with the aid of viola, synth, her voice and an array of DIY samples.
