Combichrist, Satyricon, & Peter Murphy join the Alt-Fest line up…

Alt-Fest is now describing itself as “The largest alternative festival in the Universe!!”

With a line-up that already includes Killing Joke, Marilyn Manson, Arch Enemy, The Cult, Peter Hook and The Light, as well as Cradle of Filth, Fields of the Nephilim, Gary Numan, Front 242, Alien Sex Fiend and Suicide Commando plus many more on the bill organisers may well have a point!

Add to that todays announced artists; Combichrist, Satyricon, & Peter Murphy – Electro Metal five-piece, Combichrist, are the first of several new additions to Alt-Fest taking place 15-17th August at Boughton Estate, Kettering.

The band will bring their collision of hardcore and electronic sounds to the main stage in a UK festival exclusive after having been heavily requested to appear by Alt-Fest fans. Norwegian black metal masters Satyricon, boasting more than 20 years in the business, lend their expert shredding to the Metal stage in a headline set and further UK festival exclusive.

Alt-Fest’s Goth stage will be crowned by former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy, again in a UK festival exclusive. Often referred to as the ‘Godfather of Goth’, Murphy will be performing both solo and Bauhaus material to a no doubt adoring audience.


Tickets are available now priced £83 for the full 3-day event.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
