On Sunday the latter part of the day goes heavier with Morgue Orgy confirmed as the sub-headline band warming up the final act of the weekend Breed 77 who have already announced that the Breaking Bands Festival is their only gig of 2015 as they are locked out in the studio working on a new album.
Not only do we have great support from get Your Rock Out as our main media partners and acoustic stage sponsors but we are extremely excited to announce that Planet Mosh and Rock Radio UK have come on board as media partners too. This gives the bands so much more exposure as our media partners will be running promotion on the bands, interviews, airplay and more. The festival is about bringing the music community together and what better than well respected media partners.

We can also announce that Badaxe and Ross Lee will be doing some comedy on the Sessions Studio Main Stage over the weekend. Badaxe is known for his rather running take on the latest news with his own brand of comedy about anything that is going on. He also has a lot of fun with his bed of nails sketch. Ross Lee is a guy some may know as The Pranker back in the day. He will be live on stage with some of his new sketches (watch out for him on Keith Lemon’s new TV show).
We also have the fantastic Moomin Merchandise supplying us with some very amazing laser artwork for sale. They will be sponsoring the raffles we have over the weekend that will be free for all ticket holders so a chance to win something for nothing!
