Butserfest: The Preview

We are all more than aware of the festivals that you are told you can't miss nowadays, you have your Download Festival, Reading & Leeds, Glastonbury etc.. But dig deeper into the UK music scene and you will find more underground festivals that showcase some of the best talent on a lower scale.

Introducing the festival you need to make yourself aware of.. Butserfest. It's the festivals 10th year so longevity is definitely not an issue and from the festivals social media it would seem that year by year it has jumped from strength to strength. 

Looking at the poster below you can also see that the bill is rife with talent of all shapes and sizes. Mallory Knox, Young Guns and Creeper take the big boy slots whilst bands such as Moose Blood, Area 11 and As It Is all take their rightful places on stages with said names. It is interesting to note that all of these bands are in the radar of the every major rock magazine/website so the festival has definitely focused on bands in the spotlight.

Butserfest is also an alcohol and drug-free festival which in an amazing concept at a typical setting where this would be considered the norm. It is an admirable and honest concept that makes the festival wholly bout the music and that we love!

With an intimate acoustic stage, a ridiculously cheap ticket price and barely any crossover bands this is a festival not to miss. See you there!
