Butserfest's 10 year anniversary festival just got bigger!

Mallory Knox are no strangers to Butserfest, having played twice before, and we're excited to be welcoming them back in 2016 as our headlining act!

Since their debut at Butserfest in 2012 Mallory Knox have had regular Radio One and TV airplay and gone on to conquer the UK and Europe appearing at major festivals, including Reading and Leeds in both 2013 (when they opened the main stage) and 2014, Warped Tour in the US last summer and a number of dates with Bring Me The Horizon in November. Their infectious rock and incredible live performance have seen Mallory Knox become firm favourites with festival crowds, and they are sure to provide the perfect ending to our 10 year anniversary party!

Mikey from Mallory Knox says of the event - 'Butserfest is always a show I look forward to. There's a real positive atmosphere and it's the perfect size for a festival for me. We're stoked to be invited back and can't wait to play!'

Also making their long awaited return to Butserfest following main stage billing in 2010 and 2011, and a long stretch overseas building their US profile, are London rockers Young Guns. In 2013 their single 'Bones' reached no.1 in the American Billboard Active Rock charts, a massive achievement for a British band. Their rise through UK rock ranks over the last 10 years or so has been meteoric and we're delighted to have them back playing for us for our 10th birthday celebrations!

Joining an already stunning line up are Canterbury's alternative rock band Moose Blood who've recently sold out a KOKO show 5 months in advance, Brighton pop punkers As It Is, rock outfit Fort Hope, Eastbourne pop punk from ROAM, Bristol rockers Area 11, South West pop rockers The Gospel Youth and South Coast metalcore troupe Griever. We're also pleased to welcome back Electronica rock crossover outfit The One Hundred and local boys Our Hollow Our Home, both returning following explosive sets in 2015.

Completing the line up are already announced French hardcore pop punkers Chunk! No Captain Chunk, new grave rockers Fearless Vampire Killers and Ashestoangels, the much in demand Southampton punk outfit Creeper, pop punkers WSTR, alternative rock band Casey, melodic hardcore boys Blood Youth, local electronic rockers Seething Akira, female led rock outfit Tigress, melodic metalcore band Faultlines and our Introducing Stage winners from 2015 Flashfires.
