The fourth edition of Valkyrian Festival has been confirmed for Friday 21st November through to Sunday 23rd November. Tickets are currently available for pre-order from this location and are priced at £20 (excluding P&P). Valk-Fest 2014 will be in aid of Rape Crisis.

Scottish blackened folk royalty Cnoc An Tursa have been confirmed to headline the opening night of Valkyrian Festival 2014 on Friday 21st November. Hailing from the historic settlement of Falkirk, Cnoc An Tursa have become one of the most respected and well known bands from north of the wall and without a doubt will bring something new to the masses at Valkyrian Festival 2014. Joining Cnoc An Tursa on Friday 21st November will be Yorkist metallers Pantheon who have been confirmed as main support.

Confirmed as the headlining act for Saturday 22nd November are Belgian gothic metallers Azylya, who made their UK debut at a sold out Dames of Darkness Festival earlier this year, where they supported Dutch symphonic rockers Delain. Since then, Azylya have played a few more times in the UK and were featured at Belgium’s Metal Female Voices Festival earlier this year in October. Azylya frontwoman Jamie-Lee comments:

It is an honour to be headlining Valkyrian Festival, especially in aid of such a worthy charity. We’re looking forward to playing to our UK fans again. We hope to see you all there.

Solo artist Sakara will be main support on Saturday 22nd November. The alternative pagan solo artist, who spent a brief stint as frontwoman for Apparition earlier this year, released her debut album Blood & Stone via Ravenheart Music in 2011 and since then has received positive reviews. The follow-up album will be released in 2014 via Ravenheart Music. Sakara also comments:

I am over the moon to have such a great opportunity to play Valk-Fest 2014. I look forward to seeing you all there. I’m also looking forward to sharing the stage again with Azylya!

Also added to the Saturday line-up are West Midlandic symphonic metallers Divided We Fall and Yorkshire metal mobsters Hamerex.

Valkyrian Festival 2014 is sponsored by Black Phoenix Rising Metal Forums and custom Gothic jewellers The Crypt of Curiosities. Weekend tickets are available from this location for £20. The event is in aid of Rape Crisis.

Fall Out Boy announced as Saturday’s special guests at Download 2014

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 5th November 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Following the announcement earlier this morning about Linkin Park headlining the Saturday at Download 2014 and performing Hybrid Theory, alt. rockers Fall Out Boy have just been announced as special guests.

Hot on the heels of their stunning return from hiatus earlier this year, with their chart topping album Save Rock and Roll, Chicago’s finest, Fall Out Boy will be bringing their exquisitely crafted, mega-singalong catalogue of hits to the main stage at Donington Park for the first time ever.  Speaking on the announcement, Pete Wentz said:

So stoked we are playing download. It’s a legendary one to us from watching old videos of our favourite bands playing it back in the day. Gonna be a blast, we can not wait.

Fallout Boy will be joining the likes of Avenaged Sevenfold and Rob Zombie at Donington Park next year over the weekend of Friday 13th June – Sunday 15th June. Tickets are still available for the early bird price for another three days. Tickets can be purchased at this location.
