Its been fairly quiet on the Damnation Festival front when it comes to the line-up announcements. We’ve all been waiting to see what the festival will pull out of the bag once more and its with great pleasure to say that they have again delivered the goods with a huge chunk of bands showcasing some of the best of the UKs emerging bands.
English death metallers, INGESTED, Irish doom trio, Dread Sovereign, and Portuguese avant-garde rock
outfit, SINISTRO head up the final additions to this year's Damnation Festival.
They will be joined by Hang The Bastard - who will play their final show at the event - Hark, Venom Prison, Employed To Serve, Mithras and The Infernal Sea are also included within the latest additions.
Its fair to say we are rediculosuly excited to see the last few additions to the 2016 lineup and even more happy to see The Infernal Sea, a band we have been backing for some time now including in the announcement.
Speaking on the latest announcement, festival director Gavin McInally said: "When you regularly see gigs priced at £30, £40 or even £50 a ticket these days, it's been a minor miracle booking Electric Wizard, Abbath, Cult of Luna and Enslaved, backed by the solid cast of bands below them, for a £38 ticket, but we were confident that if we could make the bill we wanted happen, fans would once again turn out in force to support us.
"With more than half of the tickets gone already and our best sales always in the final weeks, it's all pointing towards another sell-out and another massively successful Damnation Festival."
He added: "These final band deliver the very best in death, doom, black, hardcore, sludge and post-rock the UK has to offer and it's a privilege to give these acts a suitable stage to showcase their talents."Tickets, priced just £38, are on sale now via: www.damnationfestival.co.uk and right here on Facebook.
