Empire State Bastard Announce Inaugural ‘Bastard Fest’

Fresh from last month’s tour of the US opening for Sleep Token, ESB have today announced the inaugural edition of their own mini festival, Bastard Fest.

Headlined by ESB themselves – Simon Neil & Mike Vennart, feat. legendary drummer Dave Lombardo and bassist Naomi Macleod, Bastard Fest 2024 will take place on Saturday 13thJuly at Corporation in Sheffield.

ESB’s intense live shows have been described as ‘unleashing hell’ (Metal Hammer) and ‘the dictionary definition of a cataclysmic racket’ (Kerrang!). The band will be joined at Corporation by a huge lineup of UK metal acts: Heriot, Conjurer, Pupil Slicer and Sheffield locals Hidden Mothers. 

ESB were recently nominated for two categories at this year’s Heavy Music Awards, including Best Breakthrough Album for debut Rivers of Heresy – dubbed ‘bold, brilliant, bileful (4/5)’by DIY, ‘pure metal punishment (4/5’) by NME and ‘a seismic tribute to metal music in all its varying guises (5/5)’ by Upset.

Tickets for Bastard Fest 2024 will go on sale at 10.00am on Thursday 20th June, via the venue website and See Tickets. There will be an ESB fan presale taking place on Wednesday 19thJune from 10.00am, for those signed up to the band’s mailing list.
