Deep Purple

Royal Blood

When: 18th November
What to expect: Two guys, one drum, one guitar and a whole lot of noise. The sheer power these guys produce is unrivalled and the duo stand out in today's saturated market. 

Enter Shikari

When: 24th November
What to expect: If you loved their set at this year's Slam Dunk Festival, then this is for you. Imagine their headline slot, but bigger, louder and with all the razzmatazz that comes with an arena show!

Stone Sour

What to expect: A heavy night of sweat, moshing and a whole lotta jumping as frontman and former Slipknot singer, Corey Taylor, conducts proceedings for the evening.

Queen + Adam Lambert

When: 30th November & 16 December 
What to expect: If you think Adam Lambert is nothing but a Freddie Mercury impersonator then you couldn't be any further from the truth. The punch his vocal chords pack is like no other and is the only man who can do these classic Queen songs justice. The energy will be through the roof! Don't underestimate the feeling of clapping along with 15,000 fans to We Will Rock You - it's crazy.

Five Finger Death Punch

When: 17th December
What to expect: Heavy rock at it's absolute best. As the name indicates, FFDP will pack a punch powerful enough to give you the most unforgettable night. You'll also be treated to sets by In Flames and Of Mice & Men, so don't sneak in just before the main act goes on stage, this show kicks off right from the beginning.
