Rammed with the most talked about acts in punk, metal and hardcore, Hevy is the perfect festival for fans of the heavier side of new alternative music, who prefer to crowdsurf than to ‘leave quietly’.
For two days in the year, the normally tranquil Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent is invaded by bands and fans of the noisiest guitar driven music that’s even louder than the park’s band of gorillas.
In 2014, after taking a year out, Hevy is back with a lineup including older pop-punk veterans such as Reel Big Fish and Finch to more obscure metal and hardcore bands like TRC and Palm Reader. Mainly attracting a younger audience, who are in the know with the hottest new bands in the alternative scene, expect to see some extremely dedicated fans and some extremely mental mosh pits.
Your festival ticket includes entry to the wild animal park next door, so why not get acquainted with your neighbourly tigers, gorillas and black rhinos.
