Pop legends Steps, featuring H, Claire, Faye, Lee and Lisa will provide a high energy finale to the festival, which will be returning to Herrington Park in July next year.
In 2022, the event will be moving from a Friday to a Saturday with the all-day party due to be held on July 9.
Alex Hutchinson, Operations Director for Kubix Festival, said: “After the huge success of this year’s festival we are delighted to move the event from a Friday to a Saturday, now as an all-dayer, with a stunning line-up – we promise it will be the best one yet.
“We are super excited to have Steps headline next year’s festival. 2022’s incredible line up makes Kubix one of the biggest live summer music festivals in the North East. As local live promoters we are proud that Kubix is now one of the best in the country!”
Steps launched in 1997 with their line-dancing classic 5,6,7,8 and set about redefining the music landscape with 14 UK top 10 singles and three multi-platinum albums in three years.
The band released ‘What The Future Holds’ in 2020 and their latest album ‘What The Future Holds Part 2’ reached number two in September
