We’re extremely pleased to unveil the next nine bands set to rock Planet Rock presents Winter’s End 2020.
Celebrating its fourth consecutive year and once again showcasing some of Britain’s finest rising and established rock and blues acts, Winter’s End takes place at Sandford Holiday Park in Poole, Dorset from Friday 28th February to Sunday 1st March 2020.
Joining the previously confirmed Friday headliners Those Damn Crows are Tequila-imbibing Bradford rockers Terrorvision, who top the bill on the Saturday night.
As anyone who bore witness to their 'How to Make Friends and Influence People' 25th anniversary tour in May will attest, Terrorvision are in their scintillating live prime and their set at Winter’s End will be highly memorable indeed.
Special guests on the Sunday are NWOBHM torchbearers Diamond Head. Cited by thrash legends Metallica and Megadeth as an influence, the Stourbridge quintet unleashed their eight studio album ‘The Coffin Train’ to great acclaim this spring and their slot at Winter’s End follows shows with kindred spirits Saxon this autumn.
Having stormed both the New Band Stage and Main Stage at Planet Rockstock, fresh-faced Scottish rock juggernauts Mason Hill will make their debut at Winter’s End next year.
Three years on from headlining the inaugural Winter’s End with The Answer, frontman Cormac Neeson will return to the weekender as a solo artist in 2020. Cormac released his beautifully crafted and emotionally charged solo album ‘White Feather’ this April and his set at Winter’s End is not to be missed.
Also newly confirmed are Mancunian dirty rock n’ roll blues machines Gorilla Riot who will be on fine form after playing the Planet Rock Roadstars Tour with Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones and Piston this October.
Certain to bring a smile to even the staunchest cynic’s chops, comedy country rockers Bootyard Bandits will perform zeitgeist-defining anthems like ‘Ladies’ Man’ and ‘Hoedown Showdown’ at Winter’s End.
Recent Ones To Watch alumni, EMPYRE, are also bringing their colossal riffs and stadia-consuming sounds to Winter’s End - and to mark today’s announcement they’ve exclusively premiered the video for new track ‘Stone’ exclusively on Planet Rock. Watch it here:
The brainchild of titular blues-rock virtuoso Aaron Keylock and featuring the impressive pipes of singer Jonnie Hodson, Keylock will also grace Winter’s End next year. The quintet describe themselves as “a Travelling Rock n Roll Circus” and call their live shows “a celebration.”
Completing the second wave of line-up additions is Matt Pearce and The Mutiny. The titular Voodoo Six star released his eclectic solo album to acclaim back in May, which drew from the full range of Matt’ Pearce’s influences and passions: rock, blues, funk and soul.
The new line-up additions join the previously confirmed Those Damn Crows, The Treatment, Piston, Buck & Evans, Danny Bryant, Trucker Diablo and Tomorrow Is Lost.
