Primordial Radio, the UK’s Premier Rock & Metal station, is very excited to announce eleven new bands for the Primordial General Mayhem 2022.

This includes very special guest DEVIN TOWNSEND (ACOUSTIC), and melodic post-hardcore sextet AS EVERYTHING UNFOLDS.

They will be joined by hardcore/crossover thrash newcomers (feat. members of TesseracT and Eths) CAGE FIGHT, modern metal newcomers DEFECTS, alternative hip hop / punk rapper DELILAH BON and hotly tipped metal quartet HAWXX. Also joining the bill is industrial metalheads RED METHOD, Welsh rockers SCARLET REBELS, alt-rock powerhouse TRIBELESS, fast-rising UK based unit VEXED and energetic power punk band XL LIFE.

They join the line-up of headliners DINOSAUR PILE-UP and THOSE DAMN CROWS as well as London grime punks BOB VYLAN, rising Nottingham-based rock quartet AS DECEMBER FALLS, Primordial Radio’s No.1 most Up-Voted artist of 2020 MILLIE MANDERS & THE SHUTUP, genre crossover innovators SEETHING AKIRA, UK melodic metallers SKARLETT RIOT and theatrical performers WARD XVI.

Primordial Radio’s Music & Content Director, Pete Bailey – “YESSSSSSS!!!!! This is really happening, Devin Townsend (Acoustic) as a very special guest at the Primordial General Mayhem! We love Dev here at Primordial Radio, it’s an honour to have him on board for what we’re sure will be a very special intimate acoustic set.  

We’re also hugely excited to have completed the bill with SO many incredible additions, to see a bill this diverse for our biggest event to date is amazing. I can’t wait to see them all smash it and I know the Primordial community will give them a welcome like they’ve never had before, see you in April!

Launched in 2018 as a one-day event with just three bands and then expanding to four bands in 2019 and selling out in 2020/2021 with headliners Skindred it’s been quite the ride to get to this point, 2022 will see the Primordial General Mayhem expanding to 2 days, with 20 bands across 2 stages and no clashes.

Situated inside a state-of-the-art venue at the Lincolnshire Showground inside The Epic Centre, the Primordial General Mayhem offers gig-goers from the rock & metal community a chance to experience the exhilaration of an intimate indoor gig alongside the fun and atmosphere of a festival.

With all music taking place indoors but with camping and glamping available, this is the best of both worlds!
