Rockmantic 2016 Valentine Weekender

Now in its fourth year, Rockmantic returns with what is set to be its strongest line up to date. The first four bands have been announced & Sweden’s hottest property CONFESS are confirmed to headline the Saturday night. Trailblazing through the UK earlier this year, the five piece set hearts racing & heads banging in England, Scotland & Wales. Confess have most recently been confirmed to perform at the most prestigous CRUEFEST at the Whisky a go go in Hollywood, LA this July.

Newcastle’s RUSTED HERO join the pack. Originally winning the fan vote at last year’s Rockmantic. Rusted Hero was a hugely popular & a must ‘rebook’ option. The band who blend a similar sound to Slash & Black Stone Cherry are a full on powerhouse live. Edinburgh based THE KING LOT have that knack of writing amazing songs you would swear you had heard before. From the spiky ‘As They Burn’ to the shiny pop rock of ‘One Of These Days’ they then go and complete the full package with the subtle ballad ‘Until My Dying Day’. Described as the lovechild of  Guns N Roses & Bon Jovi – who would argue? The last of the first four that have more than earned their place at Rockmantic 2016 are local lads Bulletproof Rose from Workington. They play hard, fast, Rock N Roll, which brings to mind Motorhead & The Almighty. Gigging hard throughout the UK & heading over to Ibiza for the Hard Rock Hell Road Trip these boys are one to watch.

Tickets are now on sale via SEE tickets priced at £15 for a Full Weekender pass. This year saw an instant surge in sales on day one, with a 5th of allocation going in less than 24hrs.
