Combichrist, Satyricon and Northamptonshire legend Peter Murphy are among the latest names to be added to the Alt-Fest line up.

The festival takes place from August 15 to August 17 in the grounds of Boughton House near Kettering.

Electro metal five-piece Combichrist will bring their collision of hardcore and electronic sounds to the main stage and were another of the acts heavily requested to appear by fans.

Boasting more than 20 years in the business, Norwegian black metal masters Satyricon headline Alt-Fest’s metal stage.

Alt-Fest’s goth stage will be crowned by former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy. Often referred to as the ‘Godfather of Goth’, Murphy will be performing both solo and Bauhaus material.

All three performances will be UK festival exclusives.

Other new acts confirmed for Alt-Fest’s metal stage include punk rockers The Howling, Dead Harts. Sanctorum, The One Hundred, Skarlett Riot and Primitai.

Bad Pollyanna will join the SOPHIE stage.

Alt-Fest was funded through a Kickstarter campaign. Initially aiming to raise £30,000, it received more than £61,000 from fans.

More than 150 metal, goth, industrial and steampunk acts are already booked for the festival.

Previous acts announced include Marilyn Manson, The Cult, Gary Numan and Cradle of Filth.

Tickets are available now and cost £85 via
