Hevy Festival have made their second line-up announcement for 2012, adding nineteen more bands to their bill- including the identity of their Sunday night headliner: Descendents. Not only will the legendary punk band be headlining the punk and hardcore fest, but it’ll be the only UK festival show they’ll be playing all year.
They’re not the only UK exclusive bagged by Hevy either. Among the other eighteen names that have officially joined the Hevy 2012 bill today, H2O, Shai Hulud, Listener, Rise and Fall, and Reign Supreme will all be making their only UK festival appearances of 2012 at Port Lympne Animal Park this Summer.
Making non-exclusive performances at Hevy will be Municipal Waste, Cancer Bats, This is Hell, Rolo Tomassi, Devil Sold His Soul, The Safety Fire, Seahaven, Marmozets, The Social Club, &U&I, Veils, Blacklisters, and Attack! Vipers! You only have to look at the size of some of those names to see just how much Hevy has progressed over the last few years.
Hevy are promising at least another 4o bands on top of the 34 they have announced so far. As you can see from the title image up above, Hevy is once again taking place at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, and this year it falls on the weekend of 03-06 August 2012. Tickets for Hevy are on sale now from the official Hevy website for £96 (plus fees).
