Temples Festival have announced grunge godfathers The Melvins as the Saturday night headliner. The fest line up this year is pretty damn forceable, featuring Jucifer, Acid King, All Pigs Must Die and many more great bands.
Patrons of Temples Festival,
First and foremost, thank you all for the patience you’ve kindly extended of late.
Without further ado, it’s with great pride with which we finally announce our first Temples 2016 headliner, following on from the likes of Neurosis and Sunn0))) as our Saturday night headliner, please welcome (the) Melvins to Temples Festival 2016.
The Melvins will headline Saturday, June 4th alongside a diverse and tasteful selection of artists – for what’s set to be one of the heaviest & most memorable days in the history of Temples Festival. With over forty bands now announced and many more (including two headliners) still to be unveiled, we’re firmly on course for another monumental weekend.
As ever, we’ll be under-selling the overall capacity of Motion to minimise the strain on each room and ensure we can offer the most comfortable experience possible for each of our Patrons. We have secured a number of tasteful caterers for 2016 which includes an array of vegan and vegetarian options, and once again we’ll be offering a fairly priced Ale and Cider bar for the drinking contingency among us – this time, featuring a bespoke Temples Festival ale.
ALL PIGS MUST DIE
CORRUPT MORAL ALTAR
DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT
GNAW THEIR TONGUES
MARE (Hyra Head Records)
MEEK IS MURDER
THE RUINS OF BEVERAST
VISION OF DISORDER
Unfortunately, our friends in COUGH are no longer able to perform and we both offer our apologies for those of you, who like us, we’re looking forward to seeing them perform at Temples 2016. We have an incredible replacement in the works, and rest assured – you will see COUGH at Temples Festival in the future.
Weekend Tickets are available from www.seetickets.com and at present we’ve sold well over 50% of the allocated Weekend Ticket stock, securing your ticket would be a prudent move. Once again, Day Tickets & tickets for our warm-up event on Thursday June 2nd will go on-sale shortly, and for those of you who are looking for accommodation across the weekend – please visit: http://smarturl.it/TemplesAccommodation
Thank you again for your patience, dedication & ongoing enthusiasm.
