We're very excited to announce the final 3 bands for main stage at SOS Festival.... Neonfly, By Any Means & Population Four.

Confirmed for our Sunday line-up are London-based Neonfly, who since forming in 2008 have worked up an impressive tour list with Freedom Call, Power Quest, To-mera & Adagio, not to mention a place at Bloodstock 2010. The band has played international dates too, appearing in Finland, Estonia, Austria, France, Belgium & more. We're delighted they've agreed to bring their rock & power metal to SOS Festival. www.myspace.com/neonflyband

By Any Means are confirmed for Saturday. This band who are said to sound like White Zombie jamming with Black Label Society at a party held by Otep, underwent one or two line-up changes before hitting on a successful formula with lead singer Rachael Bowles fronting the band & helping project to a glowing reputation in the North West of England, recognised fully by 106.1 Rock Radio when they won that station's Future Classics contest. With a dizzying amount of memorable riffs By Any Means bring their rock & metal to our Saturday & we can't wait! www.facebook.com/byanymeansuk

Population Four are also confirmed for Saturday & this is the final piece in our main stage jigsaw. Hailing from Preston & recognised not least by a 9/10 EP review in Rocksound magazine, this band have made a very bright start in their first 2-3 years & we're really happy for them to bring their lively & refreshing modern rock vibe to our Saturday line-up which will help create a welcome diversity to the proceedings. www.myspace.com/populationfour


We'll be working more on our acoustic stage line-up during the next few weeks & don't forget we now have the Saturday Aftershow Party confirmed to run after Fury UK finish their set - the aftershow runs through with bar til 2.00am, hosted by DJ Ebony B & will also feature pole dancing by Polefire. Bring it on!
