This year Dio Fest 2 will again take place at the Exchange Arts Centre in Keighley on Saturday the 14th May 2016. Co-headliners for the event are Dio Apostles (Dio, Rainbow and Black Sabbath tribute band) and Stone Deaf Forever (Motorhead tribute band). Valafar, Dethonator, Sativa, Gothzilla, Hollowearth and Wolf 359 will also be on the bill, with more bands and day activities to be announced.
Last year they also trekked and climbed up Sca Fell Pike to raise money for Sue Ryder’s Manorlands Hospice and this year the “Men from the Silver Mountain” take on the challenging Striding Edge on Hellvellyn, Britains 3rd highest mountain.
Sue Ryder provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. Conditions such as cancer, heart failure, dementia, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and motor neuron disease.
Last year they managed to raise just over £3,200 for this awesome charity, let’s see what will be done this year. If you wanna be part contributing to this cause please do so via their fundrising page.
