Hevy Music Festival


This event has been and gone.

Returning for its 4th year, Hevy is back in 2012 to own your summer! Taking place at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent, over 80 incredible bands will be unleashed across 4 stages, with a ferocious line-up covering all corners of Hardcore, Punk, Metal and Rock.


Deaf Havana

Deaf Havana appearing at this event

Norfolk rock outfit Deaf Havana debuted in 2005 with a sound that combined post-hardcore with anthemic pop-punk, akin to contemporaries like We Are the Ocean, the Blackout, and Young Guns. Later, their sound changed somewhat drastically, echoing the hard rock anthems of acts like Daughtry, Shinedown, and Lifehouse.

The Descendents

The Descendents appearing at this event

The Descendents are a punk-rock band from California who formed in 1977. Some of their members have also played in Black Flag and ALL. They became major players in the hardcore punk scene in L.A. and their influence has been huge for bands such as Blink 182, NOFX, Green Day and The Offspring, to name just a few. Their album artwork is distinctive for the caricature drawn of the band's singer Milo who has appeared on five of the band's seven albums.

Napoleon appearing at this event

Four boys from Exeter, Devon that produce intelligent, melody driven hardcore. Having honed their skills in the live arena, the resulting sound of Napoleon is truly organic and energetic, setting them leagues apart from the many bedroom projects with players of a similar technical calibre. The band could be compared to the likes of Architects, At The Drive In and Propaghandi, who have all shown fearless boundary-pushing whilst retaining real attitude and feel. Put aside every expectation of the classic hardcore or metalcore genre and take note of Napoleon!

Andrew W.K.

Andrew W.K. appearing at this event

Andrew W.K.'s blood soaked on stage antics and foot-stamping, head-banging adrenaline fuelled rock sound produced an orgy of approving coverage in the music press and made it cool to be metal, so long as you don't actually use the M-word.
