Shades Nightclub in Bridlington will be the host for this year’s Valkyrian Festival, following the closure of The Lamp in Hull earlier this year. The annual event, organised by Bridlington-based promoter Valkyrian Music, is aid of UK charity Autism Plus.
Valkyrian Festival will take place on Friday, 23 and Saturday, November 24, with doors on the Friday night opening at 6pm and at 2:30 pm on the Saturday.
Bridlington’s own deathcore titans in the making Sea Of Giants will headline the Friday night, with support from Riff-X, Illflower, Dead Pools and Gloomlurker (the latter act supported ex-Cradle of Filth backing vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva, earlier this year in Grimsby).
Saturday will be headlined by Birmingham power metallers Dakesis, who supported Edguy recently, and played an exclusive acoustic set at Bloodstock back in August. Joining them, as main support will be Ziyos and fresh from Bloodstock’s New Blood Stage, will be Hull’s premier misanthropic black metal outfit Infernal Creation, along with special guests Sanguine, who rocked Download back in June.
North-west metal bands Nitronein and Shades Of Avalon will also be joining Dakesis as supports, along with female fronted operatic metal outfit Aonia who will be playing a rare and exclusive acoustic set. Engraved In Blood and Organized K-Hos will be completing the line-up for Saturday, as well Apparition, who will be playing with their new frontwoman, following the break after their tour with ex-Cradle Of Filth backing vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva.
Weekend tickets are priced at £4 and are available here: http://valkyrianmusic.bigcartel.com. Day tickets will be available on the door. All proceeds will go to Autism Plus (Register charity no. 518591). The event is all ages, with alcohol available from the pub above the venue.
