There are two types of metal fans right now: those who are sad because Download Festival is over, and those who are sad because they didn’t get to Download Festival. In a twist of good faith for us Northern metalheads, there’s a new kid on the block that will bring bucket list level metal names to the North East for an all new three day event.

Dominion Festival will take over the usually quiet grounds of Ushaw House & College in County Durham from Friday 29th-Sunday 31st July for the biggest rock and metal extravaganza the region has ever seen, complete with camping and catering to give you the best experience on Dominion’s maiden voyage.

There are some absolute gems on this line-up. Headliners for the weekend include German power metal legends Blind Guardian, the iconic gothic metal group Cradle of Filth, and grindcore death metal punks Napalm Death. Further down the line-up, we see a full range of rock-based genres, from pop rockers As December Falls to hardcore punks Blood Youth. Add to that names like InMe, Raging Speedhorn, Girlschool, Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons, Blaze Bayley and countless more. With three days on site to explore the diverse artists on offer at Dominion, there’s no better place to be for metalheads countrywide. 

Dominion Festival takes place at Ushaw, Durham from Friday 29th-Sunday 31st July.
