Final line-up announcement for Damnation

Damnation Festival has announced its final line-up, with a total of 23 domestic and international metal acts to perform across the 3 stages of Leeds University Union on Bonfire Night.

Swedish doom metal trio Grand Magus have been confirmed to play the Jagermeister Stage, adding to a line-up featuring exclusive UK sets from Polish death-metal act Decapitated and Ulver, as well as Swedish battle-metal pioneers Turisas and a headlining performance from Devin Townsend Project.

Damnation Festival 2011, now in its seventh year, will also host numerous home-grown metal bands, with Liverpool’s Conan and Scotland’s Cerebral Bore joining Evile and Godflesh. Local Leeds acts Humanfly and A Forest of Stars have also been added to the line-up along with Nottingham prog-rockers Illuminatus and Hereford’s Talons.

Among the other acts already confirmed to be playing Damnation Festival 2011 are God is an Astronaut, A Fear of Plagues, Amplifer, Cthtonic, and A Man Called Catten performing ‘Medulla Nocte‘.

Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union on November 5 2011.

Festival organiser Gavin McInally comments:

It’s fantastic to be able to round off what we consider to be the best line-up Damnation Festival has ever put together with a highly sought after Grand Magus performance and a pick of the finest underground bands the UK has to offer, across a spectrum of genres.
