Danfest Tickets Now On Sale!
Joining DeeExpus at The Musician venue in Leicester on the first night will be Godsticks plus The Fierce And The Dead. The other bands playing on the second night are Mr So & So, Comedy Of Errors, The Gift and Hekz.
Weekend tickets cost £35, while tickets for November 22 only are £16, and for the 23rd only are £23. You can get them right now, either from the venue box office or at www.wegotickets.com
Promoter Danny Mayo says: “The venue holds only 220, so people should get tickets sooner rather than later. The Musician has a great atmosphere, and is a good place to see prog bands.”
Talking about his philosophy in putting together this year’s bill, Mayo added: “I wanted a more varied line-up to the previous two festivals. After seeing Haken with Headspace at this venue last September, my mind was made up to bring them to the festival as one of the headliners.
“For the Friday, I built the evening around Godsticks with their many styles, then the obvious choices had to be The Fierce And The Dead and DeeExpus. On the Saturday, my first choice was The Gift, because they had to pull out of last year’s event. Comedy Of Errors are a must with the strength of their latest album Fanfare & Fantasy, and Mr So & So were a great way to carry things on. Hekz are a band who deserve to open the Saturday, as they have a very powerful approach.”
