Now in its sophomore year, the award winning Les-Fest is Scotland’s only Rock and Metal Festival that is growing a reputation for booking both established bands and some new names that you may not have heard of yet - but are bound to be hearing more about in the future.
The festival site itself is located in Valley International Park near Crossford, which is only a few miles from Larkhall train station meaning easy access to and from Glasgow city centre (which is served well by trains to and from London, Birmingham and Manchester) and is less than an hours drive from Edinburgh.

One of the things that makes Les-Fest unique is that the main stage is completely covered, so come rain or shine, the bands will still play at their allotted time – and with over 60 bands booked to appear over three days it looks like an unforgettable weekend is in store for all those attending.
There will be headline sets from Bonafide, Furyon whilst Evile perform their only UK festival headline appearance with an exclusive Scottish summer performance as they close the Thrash themed Friday night. As well as the headline acts, there will also be appearances from Jettblack, States Of Panic , Achren, Monument, Estrella, Afterlife, Def Con One, Excellent Cadaver , Massive Wagons, Collapse and many many more bands on the main stage.
On the Metal Angels Stage, there are live sets from Dave Arcari, Christie Connor Vernal, Kariss, Josephine Sillars and there will also exclusive acoustic sets from Triaxis, Sinocence and The Goddamn Electric amongst others throughout the weekend.
Onsite facilities include toilets and showers for those camping as well as numerous onsite bars and restaurants. As Les-Fest is a family friendly festival, there is the Cheeky Monkees soft play area for Under 14s and the “Rock N’ Roll Train” will also be running throughout the site all weekend.

'Collapse' have just replaced Fighting Wolves who had to pull out due to unforseen circumstances. Personally I think LES-FEST and it's fans have got a better deal here, with no disrespct to Fighting Wolves.
