RABIDFEST are proud to announce three more Rock bands to the festival!!

First up, we have our Friday opening band - The Freudian Session. This Reading-based outfit are a noisy punk/rock band that we're really excited to have.

Second up, we have local band Wolfs. They are an all-girl rock duo we know will bring a lighter, brighter side to the festival.

Finally, please welcome Aramantus to RABIDFEST. We're really looking forward to seeing these guys play. A 4-piece band hailing from the West Midlands, their flavour of Groove Metal is sure to bring you to your knees!

Please show your support to all three bands  \m/
