The brainchild of members of British djent enthusiasts English Djentlemen’s Quarters and The League of Extraordinary Djentlemen, the first inaugural UK Tech Metal Fest has finally announced the dates, venue, and the first batch of bands!

Although it’s the first event, there’s quite an impressive array of bands performing, including Chimp Spanner, Uneven Structure, Red Seas Fire and Monuments, who will no doubt be premièring their new vocalist, should this be their next show.

Also in attendance at the festival – which will take place in Alton between 13th and 15th July – will be more tech-centric such as Chronographs, who have a new EP coming out soon, and Peterborough’s Visions.

Check the poster at the top for the full line-up so far, but bear in mind more are to be announced!
