In partnership with Superfriendz, Brooders has curated some of the biggest and best on the UK underground music scene for this year’s Rifffest, producing a line-up which includes:
Crows, Strange Bones, Calva Louise, Dead Naked Hippies, Dense and 99% Cobra – with, of course, Brooders themselves.
Hull riffers 99% Cobra will provide a great start to the Festival, with their brand of heavy and chaotic hight-heartedness.

Up next is Leeds’ own Dense, into whose embrace we will be cradled, before the unsuspecting are thrown around by their ‘garage rock-infused intensity’.

Dead Naked Hippies
Back on home territory, Dead Naked Hippies will launch an all-out assault on your eardrums, as a force of nature.

In case you’re not hard-hit enough, Calva Louise will take to the stage to deliver heart-pounding psych-infused riffs.
Brooders have promised to astound us, after a six month hibernation – so you can expect high octane danger following their wealth of single releases.
Strange Bones has a reputation for live performances which resonate with genuine menace, bringing an unparalleled ferocity. Be prepared to expect anything from Blackpool’s punk-influenced quartet.

London-based headliners Crows will range from reflection and melancholy to crushing intensity, again coming with a warning to expect the unexpected and be prepared!
