FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT - TEMPLES UK
Instead of a band review from me today I have the great pleasure to announce a new festival of heavy music taking place in Bristol, UK in May 2014 called Temples.
Here is some info from the Temples Festival website:
We’ve been expecting you......
Temples is an independent music festival, taking place in May 2014, at Bristol’s famed MOTION venue. Set within the heart of Bristol’s industrial Temple Quarter (directly behind Temple Meads train station), Temples is set to bolster and further contribute to the city’s world-renowned history of musical, artistic and cultural diversity.
As a festival, our agenda is simply to bring a well programmed heavy music event to the South West of England, covering a broad range of genres within the heavy music spectrum. Featuring both international and domestic artists, we hope to have curated an event unlike any other in the history of Bristol’s thriving alternative music scene
With over 40 artists, multiple stages, live art, local food vendors & brewers – and a number of other interactive attractions, Temples Festival 2014 will mark the beginning of an annual event which we hope will attract music lovers from all walks of life to Bristol for one Bank Holiday weekend every year.
We hope that you’re as excited as we are, and can’t wait to reveal more of what we assure you will be an impeccable lineup of artists, over the coming months. Thanks!
With their recent announcement that the mighty, god-like men that are Neurosis are to be headlining the event on Saturday 5th May 2014, and with many more lineup announcements to be made over the coming weeks, Temples is fast shaping up to be a festival not to be missed. The festival is being organized by a promoter from Bristol who has put on quality shows consistently over the years, and with the organizers vast knowledge of all things heavy Temples is guaranteed to be chocked full of some of the very best stoner, doom, sludge, post metal and hardcore etc bands that the UK and indeed the rest of the world has to offer.
I for one can hardly contain my excitement about this festival, which is being held practically on my doorstep (lucky me!) and I will be giving in-depth reviews of Temples Festival for Heavy Planet when the time comes around. I will also be updating line-up announcements as they are announced by Temples so keep an eye out for those.
Tickets are now on sale at various prices so head on over to the Temples official website where more information is available.
