Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2013 – what might’ve been…

August 4th, 2013

Hevy 2013 cancelled Thrash Hits

This weekend would’ve been the fifth Hevy Festival…but as you no doubt know by now, the festival was forced to cancel their event this year. They tried to schedule a replacement all-dayer at the Brixton Academy here in London, featuring some of the biggest bands on this year’s (cancelled) bill…but as you also know by now, they had to cancel that too.

It’s not been the best year for Hevy Festival, truth be told.

Hevy Festival 2012 Thrash Hits

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

This week’s podcast has Tom Doyle joinging Hugh back in the Thrash Hits studio, and this week they’re taking a long hard look at the line-up for Hevy Festival 2012. As the UK’s up-and-coming hardcore, punk and rock festival prepares for its fourth year, we’re looking at the headliners, our top picks from lower down the bill, the unusual layout for this year’s festival, as well as baselessly speculating on the potential this young festival upstart has for the future. Oh, and mouthing off about a couple of bands. Y’know – the usual.

2011 end of year best FESTIVAL thrash hits

We go to festivals. We go to festivals and sometimes we see bands, other times we just sit in the ruddy media centre talking to bands on camera and posting videos and photos on the internet. It sounds more glamorous than it is. Luckily you always end up with a load of stuff that we’ve done from as many of the festivals we can physically go to. We go to a lot of them though. This means that we like some more than others. Let’s talk about that…
