WHAT IS VALKYRIAN FEST?
Valkyrian Fest is an annual charity event in the UK organised by the metal news site Valkyrian Music. The first edition took place in Hull in 2011. This year the festival will span a full three days and has relocated to a new venue, The Londesborough in Yorkshire. They will be raising money for the charity RapeCrisis. It features many new and upcoming bands and includes a good number of bands with female vocalists. There will also be three warm-up shows for the fest, the first of which will be headlined by English folk/symphonic metal band Ravenage. Sponsorship is being provided by The Crypt of Curiosities Etsy store, Black Phoenix Rising metal forums, Neue Regal Radio and Wolf Band Management.
