Emmure, Comeback Kid and All Shall Perish announced for Ghostfest 2012

Ghostfest 2012 have announced the first batch of bands to perform at this year’s festival on the 30th June and 1st July at Leeds University Students’ Union. Performing this year are Emmure, All Shall Perish, Comeback Kid, Defeater, The Haarp Machine, Silent Screams, Departures, Polar and Continents.

Frankie Palmeri of Emmure comments: “We’re really excited to be a part of Ghostfest this year, see ya in the pit.”

All Shall Perish comment: “Given we couldn’t make last years’ Ghostfest we’re really excited to be coming over to play the festival this year and the line-up looks incredible. Look forward to seeing you all there.”

Toyan St.Hilaire, Ghostfest’s director, comments: “I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to this year’s Ghostfest! As well as having the biggest names and most international acts the festival has ever seen, the addition of a third stage has allowed room for even more amazing underground acts so there will always be something for everyone at any one time. When I started Ghostfest back in 2005, I set out to create the UK’s best metal and hardcore festival possible, and with this year’s lineup, Ghostfest 2012 is realising that ambition. Bring on June 30th!”

The festivals capacity has increased to 2700 for 2012 and tickets will be priced at £35 for the weekend or £25 for a single day. Tickets will be on sales from Impericon, SeeTickets, TicketLine, Leeds Tickets, Crash Records and Jumbo Records from the 2nd March.
