Outbreak Fest is continuing to expand with a huge new line-up announcement.

This year’s Manchester bash – which takes place from June 23 – 25 at Depot Mayfield – will now include a reunited Bane, which will be the band’s only European show this summer.

Elsewhere, Buggin, Defeater, Militarie Gun, Narrow Head, T.S. Warspite, Pest Control, Restraining Order and Fury will all play the iconic punk and hardcore event.

The join the already-announced line-up of Denzel Curry, Death Grips, Code Orange, Converge, Earl Sweatshirt, Loathe and more.

Speaking to Kerrang! recently about their delayed return across the pond and heading over for Outbreak, Code Orange frontman Jami Morgan explained: “I feel like we’ve been so supported by the UK, but people didn’t really understand what was going on [during the pandemic] for bands. They don’t understand how much money was going to be lost by doing some of that stuff. We literally couldn’t afford to do that stuff – in a real-world sense. We can’t pay 20-grand extra to come to the UK. It’s not possible.”
