Wildfire Festival are gearing up for June’s 5th annual event with another announcement including who will fill the coveted Saturday headline spot.
Lining up alongside Wildfire’s exclusive UK performance by Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens on Friday 24th June and New York heavy metal/speed metal legends Riot on Sunday 26th June are fast-rising hard rockers Inglorious.
Causing an almighty stir amongst the UK rock faithful, Inglorious are a band set for a meteoric rise and prove that Wildfire are just as hell-bent on giving prestigious slots to the cream of the new breed as they are the experienced and renowned acts. Witness the new saviours of rock ‘n’ roll before they go stratospheric!
NG26, led by current Cradle Of Filth guitarist Rich Shaw, bring their melodic, shred-heavy, progressive metal to the stage while those whose tastes lean to the diabolically heavy have the mighty Divine Chaos to satiate their appetite.
Also announced are Northern Ireland’s heavy rock outfit Baleful Creed, the head-turning Mason Hill and South Wale’s based Fireroad returning to Wildfire with their tumultuous bluesy riffs and awesome grooves.
Psycho punk ‘n’ rollers The Dukes of Bordello will bring their almighty stage presence – including that double bass – when their Motörhead meets The Supersuckers sound ups the fun factor. Joining them are the outrageous A Joker’s Rage, whose melodic alt-rock, punk-pop anthems will keep that smile stitched manically to your face!
Rounding off the latest announcements are yet more hard-rocking riff wranglers in the shape of Black Nevada, the dirty-rock of Rusted Hero and the stoner-blues grooves of power trio Cairo Sun.
With the three day event featuring the cream of cult New Wave Of British Heavy Metal bands, bruising thrash and death metal beasts from the UK and beyond, a multitude of acts that cover the gamut of hard rock/alt rock and headliners that represent the past, the present and the future of hard rock/heavy metal, Wildfire Festival is the grassroots festival to attend in 2016!
