Northern Ireland’s leading heavy metal promoters, The Distortion Project, are to go ‘From Hell To The Unknown’ when they celebrate their 15th anniversary in October.
To mark this landmark occasion, DP will take over the entirety of Belfast’s historic Limelight complex on Saturday October 17, with 21 bands playing across three stages.
Heading the bill will be Xentrix, renascent applecore legends Acid Reign and Norwich thrashers Shrapnel.
The first raft of support acts to be announced are Sinocence, Zombified, By Any Means, Rabid Bitch Of The North, War Iron, Zlatanera, Conjuring Fate, Astralnaut, Skypilot, Two Tales Of Woe and Overoth, with the remaining seven bands to be announced over the course of the coming weeks.
Tickets for this all day metal extravaganza cost £20 and are available now from Ticketmaster, Katy’s Bar and all other usual outlets.
