Industrial Goth-rocker Marilyn Manson is set to headline the first ever Alt-Fest next year and will be his only UK festival appearance of 2014.
The new hard rock, industrial and metal event will take place from August 15-17, 2014, at Boughton House in Kettering, Northamptonshire and is the first entirely crowd-funded and crowd-led Alternative festival. The money for the festival was raised on Kickstarter throughout 2013.
Festival organiser Dominic Void spoke of Manson’s appearance saying “We are ecstatic to have booked Marilyn Manson to headline for our first year; this means a lot to us and particularly our fans. At Alt-Fest we like to be ground breaking and promised our supporters a massive Christmas Day present in the form of a big announcement and here it is!”
Also playing Alt-Fest will be Arch Enemy, Breed77, Cradle of Filth, Covenant, Fearless Vampire Killers, Fields of the Nephilim, Killing Joke, My Ruin, Peter Hook & The Light and William Control. Tickets are on sale now and available from:
