This isn’t the first time Schak has performed in an unexpected “venue”, as the high-energy performer has made waves across the region in previous years with guerilla style performances on the Shields Ferry, Tyne and Wear Metro and even inside B&Q. Schak, in addition to the other artists, even donned Greggs aprons and caps to mark the occasion!

‘Yesterday’ by Schak & Will Atkinson x Abi Flynn is available now on Armada Music. The new track can be listened to here.

About Schak

Greatly inspired by his Newcastle roots, Schak’s music is influenced by the distinctly Northeast sound of music subculture Makina; an energetic blend of happy hardcore, scouse house, donk, and rapid-fire MC-ing. Schak’s music also provides a cathartic outlet for ravers and invokes a deep sense of community that he continues to project in his artistry. 2023 has already been huge for Schak, with highlights including his legendary Mixmag Lab stream that treated a ballistic crowd to his second single “Inferno” and performing an official halftime set before the

historic Newcastle United vs. Southampton game at the Carabao Cup in St James’ Park.  Continuing his upward trajectory, the producer enjoyed a busy summer of Ibiza dates, alongside Patrick Topping and Calvin Harris, in addition to performances at festivals like Creamfields, Nass, Hideout, and more.
