About STAY-IN-FEST 2021:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we had to postpone our 2021 event, so instead we hosted a huge HYBRID in-person and online FESTIVAL live from Bradford, broadcast over TWO Twitch streams and a Discord chat server.

We put together a great mix of content including DJs from across the scene and bands new & old, with live shows and recordings from IAMX, Portion Control, A Place To Bury Strangers, DSTR, Shiv-R, Empathy Test, La Rissa, Cyanotic, Red Meat, Tapewyrm, Witch of the Vale, Noisome, Spank The Nun, Bone Cult, Nightmare Frequency, Biomechanimal, Scene Cover, Zeitgeist Zero, Byronic Sex & Exile, Zynic, Dark, Royal Ritual and DJ sets from DJ Skullscraper v DJ Borg, DJ Arricc (VGN), DJ Victoria Fenbane (Exit The Grey), DJ Eurotic (Matt Fanale), DJ Gohma
DJ Unrockbar, DJ Katalamode, and the tour de force that is Udo Wiessmann (HANDS PRODUCTIONS).

Also featuring interviews with Daniel Graves Aesthetic Perfection, and Krischan Wesenberg Rotersand, Spectres, Vision Video, and Shannon Hemmett from Leathers and Actors, courtesy of Teresa Dead and Adam AModelOfControl.

Not only was it a fun time, it was a HUGE success as a fund raiser for our nominated charities; The RNLI, Campaign against Living Miserably (CALM) and the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice. We are always blown away by the Infest family’s generosity and once again you smashed it! Over £6000 raised and still going…

Huge thanks to our technical team, streaming hosts and presenters; Biomechanimal, Karkasaurus and the Chaos Emergency Doof Broadcast Network, as well as our interviewers; Adam and Teresa from Zeitgeist Zero. Read more here:
