Sunday Slaylist: Alt-Fest 2014 CANCELLED

July 27th, 2014

Alt-Fest 2014 Slaylist CANCELLED Thrash Hits

Another Sunday, another Slaylist dedicated to the line-up of one of the UK’s upcoming summer festivals. This week it is the turn of Alt-Fest – a brand new festival taking place over the weekend of 15-17 August, in the Boughton Estate near Kettering. It’s still got a fair whack of metal and rock in the line-up, but Alt-Fest separates itself form the crowd with a healthy dollop of goth and industrial music as well. Go stuff this week’s Slaylist down your ears and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

Oh dear. Alt-Fest has been cancelled. Still, you can still enjoy our Spotify Playlist, right?
