Here’s the skinny on next year’s Breaking Bands Festival from the organisers themselves:
With Breaking Bands Festival now far behind us we are very excited and well into the build of the 2016 follow up. We now have 19 bands announced and 3 acoustic acts as well as many sponsors in place.
Breaking Bands Festival is forging a new place in the extremely busy festival calendar in the UK after a successful sold out show in 2015. With next year’s headliners announced as Reign Of Fury, Denmark’s Evil Masquerade and Ex-Iron Maiden front man Blaze Bayley taking the top slots over another fully loaded bank holiday weekend it has the potential to be even bigger.
Where Breaking Bands Festival shines amongst many other UK festivals is the experience the team have and their passion for finding true musical talent and not about making a profit. Not only that but the team listen to the ticket holders to bring in the bands they want.
A whole host of bands ranging from metal band Godslave from Germany to the funky sounds of Wretched Toad from London, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone. Plans are already in place to add longer sessions on the extremely popular Buskers Stage which we can announce will once again be sponsored by GET YOUR ROCK OUT and THE SESSION STUDIOS WORCESTER will be sponsoring the main stage.
The line-up below is not yet complete but it’s easy to see that the bbfest team have once again scoured all parts of the country (and beyond) to find the best bands they can. With ticket sales already over 20% even with an increase in capacity it is definitely looking to be sold out for the second year running. Festival parter Jason McGuire said:
We are delighted to see that the public, the bands and the press are fully backing us for a second year. This is the way we can make a success of Breaking Bands Festival and help it grow into one of the best independent festivals in the UK.
