Onslaught, Lawnmower Deth, Kill II This, Dave McPherson (INME), Boss Keloid, and Haerken are the first acts to be announced for the 2nd Uprising taking place on Saturday 27th May 2017, at De Montfort Hall, Leicester.

The event also hosts the region's Metal 2 The Masses final during the afternoon where the top five bands all play for a slot at Bloodstock Festival.

Lawnmower Deth said, "De Montfort Hall. Who the hell doesn’t want to play De Montfort Hall? All Steve bangs on about is seeing Motorhead on the 'Another Perfect Day' tour at De Montfort Hall. It fits the Lawnmower ethos perfectly, it’s a tick box. Big rooms, friends, and killer bands. So, hello Leicester it is. Stand by your beds. Old men rolling into town… Now who’s going to offer us Wembley?"

There will be stalls offering some merch, top quality foods and most importantly, plenty of choice of real ales and beverages including those from Guinness, Fireball and The Motley Brew!
