Mexican extreme metallers BRUJERIA and New York death veterans IMMOLATION will headline ‘Deathfest - The Second Coming’.
Fans can also expect a rare live appearance from Brummie grind/black/punk purveyors FUKPIG, northern death metallers DAWN OF CHAOS, and the heavy doom of VOLITION, as well as 11 other bands across two stages at the Damnation Festival backed event in Leeds University Union, Bank Holiday Sunday, May 2.
And in a bid to beat the financial gloom, tickets for the all-day festival will be priced at an unrivalled £10 until the end of January.
Deathfest director Gavin McInally said: “It’s a great double coup landing both Brujeria and Immolation to headline our second Deathfest and we’re sure they’ll provide a suitable soundtrack to the choas which will undoubtedly unfold in Leeds this May.
“Putting festival tickets on sale for less than most gigs is a first class lesson in financial suicide, but it’s important that money, or the lack of it, isn’t a reason to stop fans getting along to Deathfest and if we can pack the venue again, it’ll be a gamble worth taking.
“Similar to last year, we’ll have a main stage, again sponsored by Terrorizer magazine, which will be dominated by death metal from home and abroad.
“And to break the tempo up and offer a little diversity over the course of the day, we’ll have a selection of doom, black, grind and filthy noise on the second PHD Stage.
“So grab a ticket while they’re dirt cheap, grab a hotel room while they’re dirt cheap and come along for a first class day of extreme metal!”
