Hevy Festival 2011 Thrash Hits

Let’s keep it brief and stick to the facts – Hevy Festival 2011 has confirmed that it has booked Make Do And Mend and Defeater for the long-windedly titled Rock Sound x MacBeth stage for the Saturday and Sunday of this year’s festival respectively. The appearances by both bands are being billed as UK festival exclusives. For the rest of today’s announcement, check after the jump.

The other major announcement made by Hevy today is the Friday night line-up for the equally long-windedly titled “Unsinkable” Etnies x FRONT magazine stage. Headlined by everyone’s favourite headbutters, Lower Than Atlantis, the rest of the stage’s line-up consists of Carcer City, Giants, Bastions, Revoker, Basement, Crossbreaker, Departures and Harbours. Which you’ve got to admit it pretty damn boss, if that kind of thing is for you. They join (among others) all the names in this snazzy poster below:
