In 2022 our good friends at MMH Celebrate their 10th anniversary therefore, this is going to be a party to remember!

Below is all the info you need for this incredible event!

To kick off the Bank Holiday weekend in style, STONEDEAD FESTIVAL in association with MMH RADIO are bringing you one huge Friday Night party, to include 3 awesome bands, DJ sets, competitions and much, much more!

On FRIDAY, 26th AUGUST 2022, NEWARK SHOWGROUND. STONEDEAD FESTIVAL will be helping MMH RADIO celebrate their 10th year anniversary at NEWARK SHOWGROUND

Formed in 2008, this Sheffield based English rock band, described by Metal Hammer Magazine as being able to ‘bring the party and they bring it hard’ and ‘one of the finest live shows on the British circuit’ the Black Spiders offer fast paced high-energy, feel-good rock n’roll, contrasted by demonic doom.

With their self-titled album Black Spiders (2021) reaching No 7 in the independent album chart, these are a band to be reckoned with!

Black Spiders are: Pete Spiby (guitar/vocals), Ozzy Lister (guitar/vocals), Adam Irwin (bass), Mark Thomas (guitar) and Wyatt Wendels (drums). This band have a great pedigree having previously played at Download, Hard Rock Hell, iTunes, High Voltage, Sonisphere, Graspop, and Bloodstock festival to name but a few.

We know that FUBS will rule the roost on the Friday night.

Thwarted by coronavirus in 2020 and 2021 we are delighted to bring back Massive Aus to STONEDEAD. This time they will be providing the ‘full throttle’ experience in full on the Friday night. The hard partying Aussie rock’n’rollers give their absolute best each and every time they take the stage. Drinkin’ beers and smashing ears.

Massive are: Brad Marr (vocals, guitar), Ben Laguda (lead guitar, backing vocals), Brenton Kewish (bass) and Andrew Greentree (drums)

Classic sounding hard rock band, Revival Black strike out of the cultural heartland that is Liverpool, England. Kicking us off in style with their own brand of honest rock n roll, drawing upon the classic sound of the 70’s with a strong foothold in the modern day, Revival Black have firmly planted themselves within The New Wave of Classic Rock family.

Revival Black are: Dan Byrne (vocals), Alan Rimmer (lead guitar), Adam Kerbache (guitar), Jamie Hayward (bass) and Ash Janes (drums)

With three incredible bands and killer DJ sets from MMH themselves, in celebration of their 10th anniversary ! The Friday night is going to be a fantastic start to this incredible weekend.
