Onto the bands…

WATERLINES! Get ready for UK dutty. North-West and Yorkshire outfit Waterlines will be bringing their unique blend of metalcore and EDM party vibes to Oxford as they headline our first warm-up show of 2024 this July. And after a breakthrough year in 2023 - with dynamic sets at Bloodstock Festival, TechFest, Download Festival, ReadingRising, and more - we cannot wait for the roof to be torn off The Jericho Tavern this Summer.

ARIMEA! Oxford’s own metal icons Arimea make their long-awaited return to a Rabidfest stage. The local alt-metal legends have set stages across the UK ablaze since their last Rabidfest set, including iconic features alongside Dream State, As Everything Unfolds and many more - securing themselves as one of the most exciting up-and-coming Oxford exports in recent times. You do not want to miss what promises to be an era-defining chapter in Arimea’s short history.

ADHARMA! Hypnotic. Moving. Inspiring. Adharma is dramatic musical theatre incarnate - recounting the experiences of singer-songwriter Charlie Draper through a progressive, alt-metal lens. After starting 2024 with a bang on the heels of

the exciting new single ‘Hush Hush’, we can’t wait for Adharma’s debut Oxford set this coming July.

NTT! Opening up our first warm-up show of 2024 is high-energy nu-metal outfit NTT. Get ready for hard-hitting harmonies with face-melting vocals to get the night started right. We’ll need all of your energy for this one!

Bring on the summer! Grab your tickets to this stunning line-up below


Proceeds of this show will be put towards Rabidfest 2024, for which we are once again proud to be supporting the fantastic Sophie Lancaster Foundation - a cause who’s work resonates across metal and alt communities across the UK.

Rabidfest 2024, and all Rabidfest shows, would not be possible if it weren’t for the support of our endorsers and sponsors. A huge shoutout to Devolution Magazine, Red Death Media, Blackstar Amplification, Moomin Merchandise, Metalplanetmusic, Moshville Times,, GraphicsFix and TwoFace Promotions.
