With the mass saturation in the festival market nowadays, especially those based within the summer months, many weekenders or even one-dayers just fall by the wayside for several reasons. Even the biggest of set ups like Sonisphere struggle to stay within the UK festival market. That said, it’s great to see more niche and independent festivals survive and strengthen, and Ghostfest have manage to reach their 10th anniversary this year.
Hitting such a notable milestone is certainly admirable, and to consider that the event is only expanding further and further is really special. Following the announcement of first headliner Hatebreed, we spoke with co-organiser and The MJR Group owner Michael Jones to celebrate this special landmark, and see what the team have got in store for us this time around.
