Pop Punk Pile Up Festival Reveals 2018 Line Up




2018 welcomes a brand new festival, POP PUNK PILE UP FESTIVAL that will take place at The Venue in Selby from the 27th - 29th April 2018. Riff Media has been running successful events all over the country for a decade and 2018 sees them branching out into the festival circuit. 2017 was a huge success for Riff Media who have seen a huge growth in their events and have gained a wealth of contacts which has helped them push forward with this new festival project.

"Running events has been something we have done for 10 years and now we feel the time is right to show the world we can go that step further and host a huge event like a festival. We have opted to use the venue that we grew in. Music is a long held passion and this is a step forward for us. We are hoping to achieve success in our first year to help us develop and grow the festival!" - claims Adam Ruane, Pop Punk Pile Up Festival and Riff Media Director.

With the likes of The King Blues, Room 94, The Bottom Line and a secret headliner still to announce playing throughout the weekend, Riff Media proves that they have already grown interest from larger bands wishing to play for them on a larger scale. For their first year they have secured a fantastic line up for such a small, intimate setting, so trust us when we say, you won't want to miss it!

Riff Media are famous for their diverse line ups and POP PUNK PILE UP FESTIVAL will pride itself with a line up full of a mix of genres, so don’t let the name fool you! There are heavy bands, as well as alternative rock bands playing across the weekend and being held in such a small venue for a festival, Riff Media wanted to make the crowd feel welcome. It's definitely going to be one to remember and is guaranteed to be sweaty and loud!

Having tickets priced at just £25 for a day and £40 for the weekend, they are not charging a fortune for entry and will be donating some of their profits to worthy causes, such as the homeless charities Carecent and Mission Trinity, buying food and items for those in need. Riff Media want to use music as a way of helping society and those less fortunate and they believe that this is their chance to do that on a huge scale.

POP PUNK PILE UP FESTIVAL is set to be the next big event to hit the UK, so buy a ticket and get down to The Venue in April to tell all your friends!

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.
