NOIZ is a one-day event I’ve just been made aware of, and it’s far enough away time-wise that you have plenty of time to save up for tickets. Details below are from the event’s facebook page which is filled with links to the revelant acts if you want to check them out.

With eleven awesome riff-heavy bands in the main performance, an art exhibition, side attractions, in-crowd shenanigans, stalls, aftershow and more, this all-day event is lined up to be the loudest and most visually/mentally stimulating show of its kind in Manchester this year. Please support this DIY project by spreading the word!

Alunah (Birmingham – HEADLINING): Enchanting, classic doom with hints of psychedelia. Listen to the latest album, Awakening the Forest.
