Northern Symphony 2017 completes line-up

Northern Symphony is the UK’s premier symphonic metal event that actively support’s the UK’s symphonic metal talent. Starting in 2015, the festival has featured bands from all across the UK as well as the odd band or two from Europe.

With just over a month until the third edition of the event, Birmingham based outfit Celestial Wish have been added to the billing as main support to co-headliners Dakesis and Control the Storm. The band commented: “It’s amazing to be playing Northern Symphony with so many great bands!”

Celestial Wish are a Birmingham-based Symphonic Metal act currently consisting of frontwoman Saneeta Ram, guitarist and orchestral composer Daniel Carpenter, violist Eileen Smith and bassist Fraser Banks. Their sound is characterised by the use of powerful orchestration, enchanting synths, soaring vocals, heavy riffs and blistering solos, which all come together to form a sound that takes the listener into their own personal dreamland, where each Celestial Wish comes true, and anything is possible.

Northern Symphony Festival takes place on Saturday 15th April at The Venue in Selby, North Yorkshire and will feature Dakesis, Control The Storm, Celestial Wish, Dead of Night, Scottish metallers The Fall of Eve, Anglo-Graeco unit Synthetic, Welsh metal band Prophecy and newcomers Sorrow’s End.

Tickets for Northern Symphony Festival can be purchased online for £8 (£12 if you pay on the door).
