ManorFest opens the 3 day festival on 27th May 2022 at Whittlebury Park, near Silverstone race track in Northamptonshire, with a line-up that hammers home their ambition to be a major festival scene player, and flying high from hosting the likes of Grand Magus, Orange Goblin and Phil Campbell at their previous indoor site in West Yorkshire.

Dynamic German major hitters Accept, on their only not to be missed UK date, and New Jersey’s finest metal exponents, Overkill, unleash their exquisite power on the opening Friday and the amazing Visigoth bring their own brand of Salt City Steel.

Saturday brings Sweden’s classic doom merchants Candlemass, while Norway’s Borknagar deliver their progressive black metal. The Utah Barbarians, Visigoth, delight with a second performance of their own Epic Metal.

From Texas, Eternal Champion, play their only UK 2022 date.

Mayhem carries on through Sunday with Greek masters Rotting Christ and doom-death kings My Dying Bride sharing headline honours, ably supported by Cirith Ungol and an absolute ungodly feast of support from Midnight, Raging Speedhorn and Night Demon to name just a few.

ManorFest is off to a blistering start with their move outdoors, the complete line-up of major bands at a new festival is staggering, and showcases their ability to bring the best metal music to hard-core fans.

Coupled with a fantastic venue providing full festival facilities, including glamping, this is a definite date in every metal head’s festival diary.
