Halloween isn’t the only terrifying event happening this October, as Brighton’s premier extreme metal festival Mammothfest returns from Fri 5 – Sun 7 October. Taking place across Brighton over three venues (Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Green Door Store and The Arch) it promises to be one of the biggest weekends of the year for local metalheads with over 40 bands playing.
Legendary Polish act Decapitated will appear for their only UK festival headline performance at this three-day celebration of some of the heaviest rock music on earth. Some other artists to keep an ear out for include the eclectic Bleed From Within and local thrashers King Leviathan, who will be headlining the Sunday in their final Brighton show before they break up at the end of the month.
Sunday will also see the finals of Mammothfest’s year-long Best Band competition, which has pitted bands against each other in regional heats all year over 11 venues in the UK.
Last year saw hundreds attend the metal festival, and this year’s growth suggests it’s only going to be bigger and better. Day tickets are going from as little as £10, while weekend tickets are available for £40 from their website.
