About Us

Infest is the UK’s biggest and longest running alternative electronic music event.

We typically include EBM, industrial, rhythmic noise, synthpop, darkwave and other subgenres adjacent to the goth and industrial scene.

Who We Are

We started back in 1998 with a group of students, and we have a great reputation with fans and artists alike. Read more about our history here.

What We Do

Infest showcases genre-defining and well respected acts from the 1980s to the present day. We have artists and customers travelling from as far as Canada, the USA, central America and Australia, as well as from all over Europe and the Nordic countries. Infest really brings people together!

What Makes Infest Special

Our customers come to the show for the chance to see some very significant and influential acts alongside new talent. Our artists perform on an impeccably run stage, in intimate and friendly surroundings, with our respected production and hospitality values.

Artistically, we focus our efforts on UK premier shows and exclusives, as well as providing an opportunity for home-grown talent to share a stage with established names.


In addition to our enjoyment of the music and alternative culture, we are proud to support a number of charities each year. We’ve been around for 25 years and in the last few years we’ve donated a total of £69,632.58 since 2012. Read more about our charity donations here.

The Team

Mark is in charge of artist bookings, all things technical, merchandise and venue liaison. Chris looks after our alternative market, press, advertising and communications, as well as ticketing and customer accommodation. Lee is our highly respected box office manager and Richard is our very talented graphic designer.

We have a fantastic technical crew and extremely supportive army of volunteers, who make the show possible. Many of our crew have grown with us and have enjoyed decades working in the music industry, with their careers following our own.
