Enslaved, Nails, Full Of Hell & More Confirmed For Damnation 2016

By on 23 March 2016


Leeds’ Damnation Festival has announced the first batch of bands for this year’s event, and with Enslaved, Nails, Full Of Hell, Ne Obliviscaris and Oceans Of Slumber all on board, it’s shaping up rather nicely indeed.

Festival Director Gavin McInally said:

“Since 2005, we’ve consistently delivered solid and diverse line-ups which make a mockery of our ticket price and this year we want to go one further by booking challenging bills across our four stages, starting with five bands who’ve never played Damnation Festval before. Enslaved, Nails, Ne Obliviscaris, Full of Hell and Oceans of Slumber are the first taste of what’s to come in 2016, from hateful grind to hauntingly melodic prog and fans can expect much more over the coming months, with 22 bands still to be announced.”

Enslaved said:

“It is with great pride we announce our first ever appearance at Damnation Festival. The festival has become a well-known name for bands, and now it is finally time for us to show its audience what we are about. We’re only just back from a magic weekend in London; London By Norse was nothing short of unbelievable! We hope to see those who attended, and many more, at Damnation Festival – our only UK appearance for the rest of 2016. Be there and let’s all be damned.”

Meanwhile, Nails had this to say:

“Damnation Festival is only one day, but it is all quality. Short and Sweet – similar to our focus with Nails – this is why we feel attracted to the event and we’re proud and honored that Damnation Festival will mark first appearance on UK soil since the release of our new album, ‘You Will Never Be One Of Us’.”

Tickets for the 12th installment of Damnation Festival are on sale now, priced £38. The event is due to take place at Leeds University Union on November 5th.
