Funeral Fest 2024 / June Return To Barrow In Furness

Funeral Fest 2024 returns to Barrow in Furness for two days of Extreme Metal and the heavier side of punk and rock on 28 and 29 June. As the event moves towards completing its first decade, their road to showcasing the best of the UK underground continues apace. 

With 22 bands spread over the two days, the lineup is topped by four very strong headliners. Friday night is headed by North Eastern NWOBHM legends Avenger and London-based Crossover/Hardcore act Cage Fight, while Saturday features rare UK performances by US Doom Metal act Morne and Singaporean Grindcore icons Wormrot.
