Swedish metal veterans At The Gate have been named as one of the headliners at Damnation Festival in Leeds.
The band will make their only UK date of 2015 at the Jagermeister Stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 7.
The band say: “We are very happy to announce that At The Gates will be a part of the Damnation Festival 2015. Especially fun to be back on Yorkshire soil where it all started back in the day on Deaf/Peaceville Records. See you there folks.”
They are the first of 27 bands to be announced as the festival celebrates its 11th year. The organisers have promised they will also reduce capacity due to the over-crowdedness that fans complained about last year.
Festival director Gavin McInally says: “We plan to once again deliver the best lineup of music the UK will see this year at a cost to our fans which is also unrivalled. Having At The Gates as our first announcement can be taken as a statement of our intent for 2015.
“Our capacity has been decreased, our ticket prices will remain the same and by the time we’ve completed our four stages, we fully expect another sold out day of Damnation this November.”
