The Cult For Alt-Fest Sunday Headline Slot
Gary Numan will also bolster the line-up.
The Cult will bring the Kettering-based Alt-Fest to a close with their only UK performance of 2014.
Also confirmed this week is Gary Numan, who has been added to the Saturday main stage line-up alongside headliner Marilyn Manson.
Alt-Fest co-founder Missy commented:
“It is important to us that we listen to who our customers want to see play at their festival, the fans are in control and we are doing all we can to deliver the bands they asked for.
"Both The Cult and Gary Numan were heavily requested by fans in our polls. Gary Numan is a big act for us, we've grown up with him and I'm also personally really chuffed that The Cult have confirmed us as their only UK show, it'll be awesome, see you down the front!”
Funded through a Kickstarter UK campaign and billed as being run "by the fans, for the fans", Alt-Fest takes place over the weekend of 15th – 17th August at Boughton Estate, Kettering. Early bird tickets are on sale now from alt-fest.com.
