The organisers of the British death and doom metal based Rituals Festival has confirmed their first batch of names for the 2017 edition of the event, which will take place on 8th April 2017. Early bird tickets are currently on sale for a mere £25, rising to £30 in the future and can be purchased here. A message from the organisers reads as follows:

"Firstly thanks to all of you that supported Ritual this year. I’m happy to say the festival will be returning to Canal Mills, Leeds in April 2017 with a diverse and unique line-up. We have taken the time to combine some of the UK's newest, as well as established talented acts along with some special and exclusive favourites just for you. We are honoured to have Ihsahn headline the festival but we also can’t wait to reveal many more incredible bands for you over the coming months."

Perhaps the most prominent announcement is that former Emperor frontman Ihsahn will be headlining the festival, where he will be promoting his latest album, "Arktis" and has also hinted that he could debut some new material at the show, stating:

"I am honoured to headline Ritual Festival next year, and I´m looking forward to bringing you a set of Ihsahn past, present and maybe a dash of future as well. See you all there!"

The lineup for the event so far reads as follows:

Misery Index
The Afternoon Gentlemen
Corrupt Moral Altar
Serpent Venom
