Since the initial announcement, Northern Symphony Festival has sparked great interest on both the British and European symphonic metal scenes among fans and bands alike. With headliners WINTER IN EDEN announced, the festival saw another surge in interest. Now, with a second stage added, which will be hosted at The Riverside (conveniently next door to The Venue) in Selby, Northern Symphony Festival is set to become one exciting festival on the UK scene.
Birmingham-based Apparition have been confirmed as the festival’s special guests and will be joining headliners WINTER IN EDEN on the Femetalism sponsored Steel Opera Main Stage. With support slots for the likes of Delain, Sarah Jezebel Deva and more under their belt, Apparition have become a well-known name in the UK’s symphonic rock and metal scene.
Joining Scandelion on the Infernal Orchestra stage are gothic poets of doom Edenfall and new-comers to the scene A Clockwork Opera, who debuted on the live circuit only last month and fuse symphonic metal with steampunk elements.
Northern Symphony Festival 2015, which is the UK’s first ever symphonic metal festival, will take place on Saturday 4th April at both The Venue and The Riverside on Ousegate in Selby. Advance tickets are a mere £10 and are available from http://northernwyntermusic.bigcartel.com.
