DENIM & LEATHER NWOBHM FESTIVAL 2012

DENIM & LEATHER NWOBHM FESTIVAL 2012

Praying Mantis, Weapon, Stampede, Gaskin

plus special guests Agincourt

Praying Mantis, Weapon, Stampede, Gaskin plus special guests Agincourt will rock this year’s inaugural Denim & Leather NWOBHM Festival  at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms on Saturday September 29th.  And as if that wasn’t enough, the night will be compered by the legendary Krusher Joule.

Gigblasters and Rock Rotation Radio are proud to bring a night of New Wave of British Heavy Metal back to the country where it all started. Featuring a host of “originals”, it is going to be a night of entertainment that hasn’t been seen on these shores for a long time. Heavy Metal music at its best , back where it started.

New Wave of British Heavy Metal launched a plethora of bands, bands today still influenced by the movement. Is it any wonder so many of the original bands are still going?

All four of the NWOBHM bands on this bill were and are some of the prime movers and the support Agincourt has a very NWOBHM sound, testimony to their influences.



There will be a meet and greet with all the bands, as well as a load of authentic NWOBHM merchandise on sale.

Doors open at 4pm and tickets are priced at £15 adv / £17.50 on the door

Earlybird ticket special – £14 until July 29.
