  GHOSTFEST ADD EIGHT MORE BANDS TO THE BILL
24th March 2013

ghostfest



Set to be the UK's biggest moshfest of the year, Ghostfest is very excited to announce eight more bands to its heavy pitting lineup at Leeds Student's Union on 29/30 June 2013.

Flying the flag for the new wave of UK Hardcore, Brutality Will Prevail, Heart In Hand and POlar join the bill. The UKHC scene has been an intrinsic part of the growth of Ghostfest and Ghostfest are very excited to have them.

BRUTALITY WILL PREVAIL

They are joined by French progressive metallers BETRAYING THE MARTYRS and UK tech-metal pioneers MONUMENTS, who will bring their mind-bending technicality and relentless riffs to the Ghostfest pit.

MONUMENTS

Completing the new additions we have hardcore mob DEAD HARTS, who have been somewhat of an underground phenomenon over the past year, packing out tiny venues nationwide. Finally Manchester's BROKEN TEETH are back and promise to bring the carnage and new comers SURVIVAL make their first appearance.

They join THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, TERROR, KNUCKLEDUST, THE ACACIA STRAIN, VEIL OF MAYA, I WRESTLED A BEAR ONCE, BURY YOUR DEAD, HARMSWAY, VANNA, ODESSA, MALEVOLENCE, CHRONOGRAPHS, TWITCHING TOUNGES, BREAKING POINT, AZRIEL, MIND X CONTROL, GRADER and DEPARTURES.

Stay tuned for more band announcements!

More information on Ghostfest and Ghost Music:

Ghostfest was launched in 2005 by festival director Toyan St Hilaire, with a vision to put on the best small independent metal and hardcore festival in the country. Since its inception Ghostfest has grown rapidly from 250 to 2700 cap, selling out without fail every year. Many huge names have graced the festival's stages, including The Blackout, Bring Me The Horizon, Whitechapel, Despised Icon, Architects, Job For A Cowboy, Cult of Luna, Gallows... the list goes on and on.

In 2010, Toyan expanded the Ghost brand by launching record label Ghost Music, releasing records by Silent Screams, Advocates, The After Image, Chronographs and Odessa.




WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
