Uprising V Festival postponed, smaller event planned for Firebug


Regrettably, due to the current economical circumstances, we are announcing that Uprising V will now take place on June 25th 2022. But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t bringing the action to you this year too!

A message from Mr Uprising (Simon Yarwood) himself:
“Hi folks
It is with some regret but also with you as our main priority that we are having to postpone Uprising until June 25th 2022, we have been watching events around the UK closely over the last few weeks and it has become apparent that we can’t ensure you will get the lineup you are excited to see. Bands and crew are with due diligence having to test for Covid prior to events and if even one member tests positive or lives with someone testing positive it is forcing them to pull from events , we don’t want that to be the case as it has for many past and upcoming gigs and small festivals.
I can tell you it’s looking very promising that we will keep all or the majority of the Saturday bands
Confirmed so far!!
Orange Goblin, Diamond Head, Raging Speedhorn, Ingested, Red Method, Garganjua, Mage, Twisted Illusion, Blood Oath
Also playing the Saturday will be King Creature and Shrapnel
With that in mind we still need to do something for you in September !!
We will still put a weekend of music on at Firebug with the Friday lineup
Divine Chaos, Wired THC, Alignments and grunge girls MuddiBrooke joining the bill.
Saturday we bring you
Raging Speedhorn, Mage, Garganjua, Blood Oath and moving from the Sunday Eastern doom from Lowen
Sunday you get
Shrapnel, Countless Skies, Sertraline, Morass Of Molasses, Bloodyard and Dreameater
If you have bought or buy an Uprising ticket prior to September 11th then show proof of purchase and get a free weekend of music at Firebug as a gift from us to you for rolling your ticket over
Otherwise it’s it’s fiver per day entry
We have always ran our events and made decisions with you the customers as our main priority, this will never change, the bands want to play Uprising, we want you there but the time needs to be right and we don’t feel that’s quite there yet without having a host of bands on the back burner and an ever changing lineup over the next couple of weeks due to that currently ever present Covid 19
Thank you for your support from day one
Without you there is no Uprising”
