Hevy Fest have announced that British post-hardcore heroes FIGHTSTAR will be closing their 2nd Stage on Friday 14th August. This comes following the band’s triumphant return to celebrate their 10th anniversary last year, culminating in an incredible show at Brixton Academy.

Californian chaos crusaders HORSE THE BAND complete the 2015 line-up. They are known for their 8-bit Nintendo influenced sound combined with metalcore, which frontman Nathan Winneke once jokingly referred to as ‘nintendocore’.
