SOS Festival (Schools Out For Summer) is back at Radcliffe Civic Hall for its’ 3rd year in 2010 & this time, expanded to a two day indoor event.
The headliners are Black Spiders on the Classic Rock day, Friday 9th July, & former Iron Maiden frontman Blaze Bayley on the Metal day, Saturday 10th July.
The full line-up for each day is this :-
9th July –
Hell To Pay
10th July –
The More I See
Skull Branded Pirates
With 20 bands over the 2 days, the festival again combines the well known, international talent, with local Manchester talent & focuses on quality throughout. As well as the obvious attraction of the headliners, there’s also notable highlights such as Fury UK who’ve won over so much of the metal community this year since being backed by Metal Hammer magazine in its’ Hotlist 2010 & putting in an amazing performance at Hammerfest in March.
The More I See featuring former-Prodigy guitarist Gizz Butt; Falling Red who’ve come up with the sleaze/glam rock release of the year with “Shake The Faith” & hotly tipped by both Classic Rock & Big Cheese magazines whilst also touring as main support to former-AC/DC singer Dave Evans in May; 4Bitten (Greece) who tour the UK between May & July with Dan Reed (Dan Reed Network) & Michael Schenker (UFO/Scorpions); The Crave who’ve recently supported the legendary Deep Purple & last but not least the nautical seafaring metal madness & fun of the Skull Branded Pirates.
This weekend is looking to be absolutely incredible, but you need to get your tickets here now!
