NEWS: Third Wave of bands announced for Rabidfest 2023!

After a couple of months of relative radio silence from the Rabidfest Family on additions to the 5th Anniversary line up, the heavens have opened and turned the dry spell into rainy season with no less than six more added in one hit. That means we can stop doing our rain dance and tell you a little more about what will be occurring at The Bullingdon in Oxford over the weekend of the 4th and 5th November 2023.

The biggest of the new additions is arguably Cage Fight, an old school aggro Hardcore band from London who feature in their ranks former members of Eths and TesseracT. Next up are Hull Heavy Hitters Sworn Amongst who we’ve witnessed at Tech-Fest and have reached 19 years together in  Technical Metalcore. Fresh from Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses Indecorum promise chugging riffs of the finest order while Depolarize will be bringing their debut album “Captured” which is out later this month. Filthy riffs and Blues Rock masters Stone Soup will open the weekend while Oxford natives Second Hour will bring Traditional Metal vibes having been reborn from the ashes of Last Rites. Here’s whose been announced to play this year (so far)…

Blaze Bayley
