THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT will headline Damnation Festival 2011.
The Canadian metal genius will close the Jagermeister Stage with a bang on Saturday¸ November 5¸ in Leeds University Union.
Also on the bill¸ playing the Terrorizer Stage¸ are Taiwanese black metallers CHTHONIC.
Joining a solid cast which already includes UK exclusives by Ulver¸ Decapitated and God Is An Astronaut as well as performances by Godflesh¸ Evile¸ Amplifier¸ Doom¸ Shining¸ Turisas¸ Dragged Into Sunlight and more to be announced¸ the seventh installment of Damnation Festival is its strongest yet.
Festival director Gavin McInally added: “It’s not often that bookings go our way so to be able to announce the Devin Townsend Project in a year when Ulver and Godflesh have already confirmed¸ is something special.
“As fans travelling to Bloodstock Open Air this weekend will find out¸ Devin’s shows are more often than not the highlight of any festival bill and we are delighted that he’ll round off a Jagermeister stage crammed with some of the finest live metal acts around.
“Chthonic are another sterling addition to what is now the best Terrorizer Stage we’ve ever put together; Ulver¸ Decapitated¸ Doom¸ Shining¸ Chthonic¸ Dragged Into Sunlight¸ Altar of Plagues and Paul Catten performing Medulla Nocte – a proper reason to start a riot!
“With God Is An Astronaut¸ Evile¸ Turisas¸ Amplifier¸ Xerath and Astrohenge adding some real diversity to the event¸ all we need now is the backing of like minded fans to make this year a major success.”
