First bands announced for Hevy 2010

Hevy Music Festival has announced the first line-up of bands scheduled to perform at the festival with the official statement below:

The team behind last year’s one-day music event on Folkestone Seafront return this summer with their first full weekend festival. The Hevy Music Festival 2010 will feature 4 stages of great bands, live extreme sports displays and the UK’s most exhilarating thrill-rides.

“With a brand new venue and some awesome plans, this year’s festival is what we’ve always wanted to bring to Kent – it’s going to be huge!”

“There’s some fantastic little festivals down here that offer a great family-friendly product. But we’ve always felt there’s a need in this corner of the UK for something a little heavier, and that’s what we hope to be – Kent’s alternative music festival. We’re really going for it too – with huge bands from all corners of rock, punk, hardcore and metal, insane extreme sports displays and some hand-picked, state-of-the-art thrill rides – everything on site is totally focused at the alternative market. And at just £69 for a weekend camping ticket, it’s seriously good value too!”

“Headlining the Main Stage on Saturday will be hardcore giants Gallows, supported by a meaty line-up including Rolo Tomassi, Dead Swans and Feed The Rhino. Brit-rock heroes The Subways will be second on the bill for Sunday, with the headline act still to be announced!”

Legendary Brazilian metallers Sepultura will be headlining the Second Stage on Sunday, supported by grindcore pioneers Napalm Death. We’re also teaming up with Red Bull to bring you 2010’s greatest upcoming bands for the Bedroom Jam Stage, with Polar Bear Club and Lower Than Atlantis already added to their Sunday line-up. Finally, the Local Heroes stage will showcase Kent’s finest homegrown talent between the main stage sets. If your band wants the chance to join the line-up you can apply here

“Loads more bands will be announced over the next few weeks. Join us on Facebook & Twitter to be the first to hear the latest news and announcements. Brace yourselves people, this is going to be epic!” – James & Claire.

Weekend camping tickets cost just £69 and are on sale now.
