It’s time to gear up for the Big Bang! Join the Primordial party on July 7th and 8th and get ready for an epic weekend of awesome music, community, camping and bonfires. It’s not just about the music – it’s about the people that make the magic happen.

Friday night will feature DJ sets from your favourite Primordial Presenters, while Saturday night will bring the heat with live performances from Dr Alibi, serving up a fusion of punk, indie, and ska-punk covers and Last Call, the Nu Metal tribute band will be playing iconic hits from the likes of Slipknot, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, and System of a Down.

Connect with old and new friends, savour ice-cold drinks and jam out to hits from your favourite bands. Everyone is welcome to this epic party hosted by OGRI MCC and organized by Mark Manby. With ample space for setting tents, caravans, and even yurts, there’s no need to hurry home – stay up late and cosy up with fellow members of the Primordial community around the bonfire on a summer’s eve.
