Heretic Fest emerges from the blight of the pandemic pause

Sheffield’s Heretic Fest is back for 2022 with a three-day event over the weekend of 13/14/15 May 2022. This year’s festival has been expanded to include King Creature, The Dark and South Of Salem.

The three-day festival’s headliners are Inglorious, Stone Broken, Phil Campbell, and the Bastard Sons. Ashen Reach will appear on Sunday, having won the fan vote.

“I’m extremely excited for the future of this show,” Festival organiser Hannah Fellows said. “Whilst this is now the third date change, I’m very confident it will now go ahead on the new dates, and I will prove that Heretic Fest is one worth attending.

“Things are already in place for the future of Heretic Fest, and they’re looking very exciting over the next few years. I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support in the start-up of this show. Things can only go up from here.”

Friday will see Inglorious, RavenEye, Cellar Door Moon Crow, Dig Lazarus, and CPSD perform at The Corporation, Sheffield.

Saturday’s stage will feature Stone Broken, Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics, The Fallen State, Daxx & Roxane, Bootyard Bandits, Revival Black, Ryders Creed, These Wicked Rivers, Steal The City, Land Sharks and Bastette.

Sunday stars are Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons, Black Spiders, King Creature, South Of Salem, Ashen Reach, The Dukes of Bordello, Liberty Lies, The Dark, Austin Gold, Yesterday’s Gone, and Caesar Did It.
