“It’s not all doom and gloom, as Heretic Fest is expanding! That’s right… we now have three days of music from some of the most amazing bands around! The new dates for your Diary Friday 30th April – Sunday 2nd May 2021

“The bands due to appear on the original day have now been scattered across the weekend and joined by some more fabulous acts.

“Friday will see the current line-up, however as this is a Friday, a lot of you will most likely have work, so the day will start at 5PM and there will be five bands performing from the original line-up including Inglorious, RavenEye, Cellar Door Moon Crow, Dig Lazarus and CPSD!

“Saturday, we Have many new acts joining the bill, Aaron Buchanan & the Cult Classics will be main support along with Daxx & Roxane, Revival Black, These Wicked Rivers, Steal The City, Land Sharks and Baranovich.

“Sunday, we have more insane acts, joining us are The Rocket Dolls, The Addiction, The Dukes of Bordello, Yesterday’s Gone, Wolf Within and Austin Gold.”
