Founder member Bill Beadle, lead vocalist/guitarist and songwriter of the 80’s heavy rock band Sacrilege is back, writing, recording and playing. Sacrilege always had a stage show no matter whether they were playing a pub, club or festival. Fans may remember the real long dry grass they used around the stage, the cobwebs over the drum-kit, the explosions, dry ice and 4×12 cabinets with crosses and smoke pouring out of them, always a showcase. You will be pleased to know that the band still put on the shown they were renown for. Sacrilege ended when Bill stopped playing for about 25 years whilst raising a family but they are now back, better than ever, writing and recording new music!
Massive Wagons are a young British 5 piece Rock and Roll band in the great British Rock tradition. No gimmicks, poncy haircuts, stupid clothes or bollocks claims – just straight up, in yer face heavy ROCK AND ROLL. Hailing from Lancaster they are 5 mates who love music, girls and beer and just happen to be great musicians. Comprising Baz Mills on Vocals, Adam Thistlethwaite on lead guitar, Carl Cochrane on rhythm guitar, Bowz Bouskill on bass and Alex Thistlethwaite on drums, they combine to produce a blistering sound guaranteed to de-roof a venue. Winners of TBFM Best Live Act 2013!

The band are an energetic and entertaining live band with their influences coming through in both their music and live shows. Hamerex have supported such bands as PowerQuest, Conquest Of Steel and Funeral For A Friend. The band are excited about the release of their second album ‘IX’ which shows Hamerex at their musical best with their most varied and experimental release to date.
Ajenda are a female fronted rock act with 3 self released eps under their belts.

Drawing on their various influences, Ajenda’s sound impinges into various rock subsections to produce a fresh take on the current rock scene. The new album “Unrecognizable” has been receiving rave reviews across the globe.
Sometimes when an irresistible force meets an immovable object, great things happen & this is one of those occasions. Welcome to I AM I. The formidable driving force behind the band is the renown vocalist ZP Theart. After his departure from Dragonforce in 2010 he worked tirelessly to put together a new project and after searching out an incredibly talented group of musicians, the lineup was completed and the end result was one of the most exciting new bands of 2012, I AM I.
BONAFIDE was formed by singer/guitarist Pontus Snibb in Malmö, southern Sweden, in 2006. Joining him is fellow guitar player Anders Rosell, drummer Niklas Matsson and bass player Martin Ekelund. Their mission; to play Hard Rock the way it´s supposed to be played: True to it´s roots in the electric blues and early R´n´B. What a way to finish the very first WINTERFEST line-up!
