Ghostfest is back and promises to top last year’s sold-out event with over 40 bands, three stages, even bigger names and an increased capacity to 2700. Taking place on the 30th of June / 1st of July at Leeds University Students' Union, the first headliners have now been announced as Emmure, All Shall Perish, and Comeback Kid.

Frankie Palmeri of Emmure says: "We’re really excited to be a part of GHOSTFEST this year, see ya in the pit."

All Shall Perish added, "Given we couldn’t make last years’ Ghostfest we’re really excited to be coming over to play the festival this year and the line-up looks incredible. Look forward to seeing you all there.”

They’re joined by Boston punks Defeater, tech-metal wizards The Haarp Machine, Ghost Music signings Silent Screams, melodic hardcore outfit Departures, noise-core mob Polar and fast rising Welsh boys Continents.

An excited Toyan St.Hilaire, Ghostfest’s director, comments: “I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to this year’s Ghostfest! As well as having the biggest names and most international acts the festival has ever seen, the addition of a third stage has allowed room for even more amazing underground acts so there will always be something for everyone at any one time. When I started Ghostfest back in 2005, I set out to create the UK’s best metal and hardcore festival possible, and with this year’s lineup, Ghostfest 2012 is realising that ambition. Bring on June 30th!”

Ghostfest is proud to announce that Impericon, Monster and Time Will Tell will each be sponsoring a stage, and as usual Monster will be giving out free energy drinks. Leading music title Rock Sound magazine has also come onboard as media partner.

Tickets cost £35 Weekend / £25 Single day, with an exclusive pre-order available at this location.
