Headliners Don Broco are no strangers to Butserfest, having played the festival’s main stage in 2012. This time round they’ll be closing out the event – expect it to be big. At the start of 2015 they headlined the Kerrang! Tour with We Are The In Crowd, Beartooth and Butserfest veterans Bury Tomorrow, and with a highly anticipated brand new album due for release in August they will be rounding off an amazing 2015 festival season at Queen Elizabeth Country Park.
Butserfest 2015 will also see the return of Milton Keynes rap djent crossover crew Hacktivist, who went down a storm on the Alternative Rock Stage in 2013, and first time outings for electro DNB outfit The Qemists and London rap rockers The One Hundred and Somerset post hardcore from Cardinal Bay who will also be gracing the main stage.
The Alternative Stage will see the crushing grooves of Brighton’s Fathoms, Manchester metallers Carcer City, must-see live band Zoax, Midlands hardcore in the form of Lock & Key, London melodic hardcore posse Create to Inspire, local metalcore lads Prolong the Agony, post hardcore from Manchester boys Lost Atlanta and last year’s Introducing Stage comp runners up – Farnham’s own Waking Angel.
Butserfest was founded following consultation with local young people in East Hampshire, who said there was not enough to do in the area. Now in its ninth year Butserfest has grown year by year and now has a reputation as the UK’s biggest alcohol-free festival.
