first up…

Pop-punk heroes A Day To Remember will be storming the Main Stage on Friday. Having released their long awaited seventh album ‘You’re Welcome’ back in March, it’s looking like a big year for the band. Get ready to get your pogo on. DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH, DUH DUH….

The Great Danes of Volbeat will be bringing their rockabilly riffs and high voltage live show to the Main Stage on Sunday. Expect to hear tracks from last year’s ‘Rewind, Replay, Rebound’, which scored them a top 10 in the UK album charts.

Saturday’s Main Stage will play host to multi-platinum selling Floridians Shinedown. Fun fact: they’ve had more number ones on the Billboard Rock chart than any other band, so it’s sure to be a hit packed set.

Theatrical rockers Black Veil Brides will take the Main Stage on Friday, where Southampton’s Bury Tomorrow will also be flying the flag for UK metal.
