Festival to take place in scenic market town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire with line-up including Nurse With Wound's Andrew Liles, Mayhem's Maniac and Carl Stokes of Cancer

Tor Ist Das! is an annual three-day festival held in the scenic surroundings of market town Todmorden in West Yorkshire and the first announcement for this year’s event includes Andrew Liles of Nurse With Wound, Maniac of Mayhem and Carl Stokes of Cancer.

Also listed among the first acts for this year’s Tor Ist Das! are Ashtray Navigations, Manchester noise rockers Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, Girl Sweat, French trio Terrine and Flamingo Creatures. Moving away from the noisier fare on offer, this year’s festival will also take in sets from Hellvete, Daniel Voight, Isnaj Duj, Kemper Norton and Chicaloyoh. The event will kick off with an opening night party on August 14 and then continue on to the gothic, grade 1 listed Todmorden Unitarian Church for two more days of live music, workshops and DJ sets.

Tickets are on sale now priced at just £20 for the whole weekend or £12 per day. A small handful of even cheaper, early bird tickets also remain. This year’s event takes place from August 14-16. You can find the full, extensive line-up as it stands, more information on the festival and those all-important ticket links here.
