Alt-Fest has announced goth/rock forerunners The Damned as its Sunday Goth Stage headliner. The band will play a selection of songs from the Phantasmagoria and Black albums, as well as a ‘people’s choice’ track to be decided by social media ahead of the set. The Damned’s set list includes tracks that have not been played live for years.
The Damned formed in 1976, holding the rank of first British punk band to tour the U.S. After disbanding twice, the band reformed and continued into the present, most recently receiving the Classic Rock Outstanding Contribution Award for services to Rock music over 36 years.
Alt-Fest is the largest alternative music festival in the world, running August 15-17 at Boughton Estate in Kettering, U.K., featuring six stages of six different music genres. Bands scheduled for the festival include Marilyn Manson, The Cult, Gary Numan, VNV Nation, Front 242, Suicide Commando, Peter Murphy, Dead Kennedys, and many more.
