Event programmer Jed Saint, director of Rawkus Events, has handpicked bands from Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, Newcastle and Huddersfield to play alongside Lancaster acts for what is shaping up to be a heavy rock infused few months at the Cable Street pub.

On January 20, Glasgow based post hardcore four piece Tenements perform alongside Citadels and Kirkham based “loud metalcore vocalist” Kriss Fogg.

On January 26, heavy rock continues with Stoke-on-Trent based Black Coast who “absolutely hammered it on our heavy day of Lancaster Music Festival ‘16...and return bigger, beefier and better with a bunch more filthy Southern-fried riffs”, according to Jed.
