A few weeks ago, we announced the first bands that would be performing at Ieperfest winter edition 2012. Today, we are pleased to announce 3 more but unfortunately also 2 cancellations.
PIANOS BECOME THE TEETH decided to postpone their February tour. This also means that their support act GOODTIME BOYS won’t be playing. We hope to have both bands on our stage someday in the future though!
New to the bill are:
DOOM (UK) // Legendary punk/hardcore/crust act formed way back in 1987. Originating in Birmingham, England, they were pivotal for the rise of crust and punk. After several splits (due to reasons of all nature) and just as many reformations, DOOM is now back as strong as ever before. We are glad to welcome these legends on our Winterfest
NO TURNING BACK (NL) // In this day and age where hardcore bands come and go with the speed of light NO TURNING BACK are holding true to what they originally set out to do and they’re not planning on giving up, ever. Those who remember their set on last year’s Ieperfest won’t want to miss out on this!
xVICIOUSx (BE) // Representing Belgium on the 2012 Winterfest will be young and upcoming straight-edge West-Flemish beatdown pounders xVICIOUSx. They earned their spot on the bill by being energetic, working hard and playing shitloads of shows over the past year. It’s time to get VICIOUS!
Ticket prices are the same as they have always been for Winterfest: pre-sale tickets cost 14 Euro and can be bought online (www.ieperfest.com or www.facebook.com/ieperfest) or in your local Free Record Shop or Fnac! Space is a little more limited at the new venue, so get your ticket before it’s too late!
We also want to inform you that we are working really hard on the bill for the 20th anniversary edition of Ieperfest, taking place on 10, 11 and 12 August 2012. We will be able to announce a first list of bands soon, so stay tuned!
