With two stages announced, UPRISING will be adding a third performance space with five bands announced to perform across the day:
Firstly, the critically acclaimed quintet RECALL THE REMAINS will headline the third performance area, the band have been making a name for themselves since their emergence onto the scene in 2012 with performances at Bloodstock Festival, Mammothfest and Manor Fest as well as support slots alongside HED PE, Viscera, Mastiff and more. Get ready for scissor kicks!

Also joining the lineup is London based electronic music group PRETTY ADDICTED, with influences from Marilyn Manson to The Prodigy, the band are described as a dark rave at an evil funfair. This will be a warm up for the bands ‘Summer Goths Tour’ that will be hitting all corners of the United Kingdom as well as heading over to Europe for a select few dates.

Stoner / Doom juggernauts MASTER CHARGER will be bringing the riffs to UPRISING.
