The indie group will be joined by Lush, Public Service Broadcaasting, Teleman, Fear Of Men, and Warm Digits on 31 July. 

Maximo Park's Paul Smith says of the show: "It's been a dream of ours to headline a big outdoor gig in the heart of Newcastle city centre and now, after celebrating our 10th anniversary last year, we get to fulfil that ambition at the height of summer, on home turf. I hope there will be a celebratory atmosphere in Times Square because there are some excellent bands on the bill and we intend to put on a great show."

Tickets will be on sale from 9am on 15 April.
