Mammothfest has been hard at work putting together a 30 date national tour with the intention of seeking out 20 of the best underground acts to be selected to complete the 80+ band line up at MAMMOTHFEST 2015.
The MAMMOTHFEST team will bear witness to over 150 bands throughout the summer and provide much needed energy and investment into certain areas especially where there are venues that are currently at risk of closure.
Not only that, the franchising of the MAMMOTHFEST brand across the UK gives localised promoters greater reach to draw in larger customer numbers. Some have even set up their own one day festival style events like the “Among the Wolves Festival” in Wolverhampton.
Stephen Dickson, the Mammothfest director commented: “Having 30 promoters all over the UK combine like this has been a Mammoth task but now the network is in place we are seeing a national buzz around these events. Promoters are hyped about the project and have seen a great uptake on their shows while bands all over the UK are keen to show they have got what it takes to play MAMMOTHFEST 2015. But I must add, this is not a battle of the bands, these are simply 30 show case A&R events that give our team an accurate measure when considering which bands to book for our main event.”
The 20 bands will not be selected until the 30 date tour has been completed. At which time MAMMOTHFEST will formally announce those bands selected to play the main event in October 2015.
Bands keen to get involved and play one of these shows should head to www.mammothmetalfestival.co.uk/community and contact your local promoter but hurry, most events are now full.
