Damnation Festival Add To 2021 Line Up

Damnation Festival Add To 2021 Line Up

Scottish blackened speed thrashers HELLRIPPER and American prog math rock trio DYSRHYTHMIA have been added to this year’s soon-to-be-sold-out Damnation bill.

The pair join a stacked and eclectic four-stage line up which will be hosted at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 6.

Pig Destroyer, Wolves In The Throne Room, Elder, Blood Incantation, Pallbearer, Onslaught, Incantation, Conan and Morne are among some of the bands already confirmed to perform at the festival’s 16th instalment, which now has fewer than 800 tickets available.

Hellripper said:

“We're excited to be joining an absolutely killer line-up at one of the UK's best festivals for the first time later this year!

“We'll finally get the chance to play some tracks from our latest album 'The Affair of the Poisons' and we're looking forward to seeing everyone there. Roll on November!”

Festival organiser Gavin McInally added:

“Since Bo-Jo promised us a return to live music by July, fans of all genres have gone on a ticket buying spree with the likes of Reading, Leeds and Boomtown already sold out and our friends at Bloodstock and ArcTanGent also seeing huge spikes in sales.

“Damnation has been no different with an incredible upturn in sales over the past several days, leaving fewer than 800 tickets on sale.

“We will now announce any remaining bands the second we get the all clear from their end so there’s at least a chance for fans of those bands to grab a ticket.

“The first two of those remaining six bands, Hellripper and Dysrhythmia, offer even more texture to a diverse bill with their take of blackened speed thrash and jazzed-up proggy math rock.

“The race is now on to get the final four bands announced before the sold out sign goes up!”

Tickets priced £53 are available from damnationfestival.co.uk/tickets

The full line-up announced so far is: Pig Destroyer, Wolves In The Throne Room, Elder, Pallbearer, Onslaught, Blood Incantation, Bell Witch & Aerial Ruin, Incantation, Conan, Year of No Light, Bossk, Morne, Esoteric, Hellripper, Abigail Williams, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, Sylvaine, Vale of Pnath, Irist, Behold… The Acrtopus, Boss Keloid, High Command and Dysrthymia.
