Uprising Festival

Returning for its fourth episode on 14th September 2019 and to say that we haven’t stood still is an understatement; what did that ever achieve?

Our venue for 2019 is the O2 Academy Leicester incorporating all of its stages plus ones it doesn’t even know it has yet(!)

With “Kings of the UndergroundNapalm Death headlining the show this year, being joined by Acid Reign who make a welcome return from the first Uprising with a brand new album (it would be rude to not have them back) along with Krysthla our Leicester favourites hitting the main stage this year.

We have managed to capture and convert lengthy riff sluggers OHHMS to join us too – we have been wanting these guys since seeing them smash the Sophie stage at Bloodstock Festival 2017!


Also as you have now all come to expect …our food stalls will leave you (not) hungry for more, we are catering for vegetarian and vegan diets this year, and for the beer connoisseur we have real ales and a Guinness bar, something to suit all pallets!

We will have relaxing indoor and outdoor areas with seating and only a short walk into the city centre should your need for culture be hungry too!

Age limit 8+ under 14’s to be accompanied by an adult.

O2 Priority tickets on sale Wednesday 26th June 10am

General release on Friday 28th June from 10am via Ticketmaster and Gigantic

Loads more bands to be announced over the next few weeks, we will also be giving details of our fringe events “THE NIGHT BEFORE …AND THE AFTERMATH” so stay tuned for details!
