RISEFEST 2022 Announce STATIC DRESS As Surprise Final Artist

There has been no shortage of dance, indie or nostalgia focused one-day
festivals in North East but never a purely alternative-based festival on this scale.

RISEFEST is now here to fill that gap to create something that the North East
scene has been sorely missing.

RISEFEST states: “When we started RISE six years ago we always wanted to
do something special for this city, whether it was making sure that the music
was banging, the vibe was amazing or the drinks were cheap – and we created
Newcastle’s biggest, award-winning alt club night!

Now, six years later, we’ve worked hard enough to go even bigger and give
Newcastle it’s very own modern alternative festival. Join us as we bring you
some of the biggest names in the UK Alternative scene, across two stages in
one day!

RISEFEST 2022 will not only feature two stages of non-stop live music, but there will also be official merchandise outlets, food stalls and exciting new vendors to check out – full list of who will be in attendance this year coming very soon.

Few bands within the alternative scene had the devastating impact that STATIC DRESS have over the last year. Voted by Kerrang! readers as the Best New Band Of The Year in 2021, their debut project “Prologue…” set the stage for what is one of UK’s music’s most exciting creative forces; a comic book and official soundtrack that built the foundations for the parallel universe they have teased with innovative puzzles and lore that has captivated fans.

Hot off the heels other debut LP release, “Rouge Carpet Disaster“, STATIC DRESS will be taking to the Main Stage and performing their last UK live show of this year THIS SATURDAY at RISEFEST!

British multi award-winning horror punk stars CREEPER have also announced that they will be performing a one of a kind, EXCLUSIVE “The Weeping Widow” set live on the Main Stage at RISEFEST 2022 this year – an unmissable event and something RISEFEST is extremely proud to present to it’s attendees. 

RISEFEST also just got a lot hotter, with KILLPOP, VENUS DOOM and LOLA FILTH joining the bill and bringing the very literal HEAT – they’ll be performing on the RISEFEST quad together on Saturday September 10th!
