Sam Fender, Arctic Monkeys, Aitch: Hometown heroes set for huge weekend of live music
By Paul Glynn
Home is where the heart is... and this weekend that's where a notable number of top bands, singers and rappers will return to play big open-air gigs.
The Arctic Monkeys, Sam Fender and Aitch will head back to where it all began to perform for crowds in Sheffield, Newcastle and Manchester respectively, as well the Courteeners.
Here's a look at what to expect as the local heroes prepare to hit the North.
Let's hope they have the guestlists sorted already, for their own sakes.
Otherwise there'll be some disappointed old friends and family members.
Arctic Monkeys at Hillsborough Park, Sheffield - Friday and Saturday
When Arctic Monkeys headlined Glastonbury Festival in 2013 - as they'll do again later this month - frontman Alex Turner proudly introduced his band as hailing "from High Green, Sheffield".
Their current UK tour, in support of their seventh studio album The Car, will first see the now internationally-based superstars swing by their old stomping ground for two nights of rock 'n' roll fun 'n' frolics.
