Festival to take place on 1-2 June 2024 in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, UK



Following on from yesterday’s poster reveal and confirmation of second stage headliner Misþyrming, Fortress Festival is not stopping and has revealed another exclusive show for 2024. Dutch atmospheric black metal band Fluisteraars will also visit the Scarborough shores in June 2024.

This will be a 2024 UK exclusive show for Fluisteraars and their first-ever UK show in the band’s nearly fifteen-year career. Other than Roadburn, this is currently the only 2024 live appearance planned by the Dutch act and their third-ever show in their brief concerting history.

Fluisteraars said: "After Iceland, we are looking forward to playing on another island. Again, an island full of mythical history that we hope to get a taste of. We will play a set with various songs from our entire oeuvre. We'll see you there."

Gary Stephenson, Fortress Festival organiser and Reaper Agency UK founder, said: "Drenched in raw atmospherics and folkloric mysticism, and with three incredible full-length albums and many other EP & split releases in their pocket, it is finally happening; After 15 long years, Fluisteraars are coming to perform live in the UK at Fortress Festival '24. The band have only performed live once in their career, and besides their forthcoming 2024 performance at Roadburn, Fortress Festival is currently their only planned live show. We are honoured to welcome the band to this prestigious and exclusive line-up of black metal acts from around the world."

Fluisteraars join a stellar line-up of special bands and exclusive shows. Previously confirmed bands include Triptykon with a 2024 UK exclusive and mainstage headlining show, Wolves in the Throne Room with a 2024 UK exclusive and mainstage headline “Two Hunters” set (the first time the iconic album will be performed live in the UK), second stage headliners Misþyrming with a 2024 UK exclusive show, second stage headliners Regarde Les Hommes Tomber with a UK exclusive show for 2024, Blackbraid with a debut and exclusive UK show, Panopticon with a 'Roads to the North' anniversary full album set, and Furia with an exclusive UK show.

The highly-regarded Portuguese act Gaerea will also visit the North Yorkshire shores. Fortress Festival will also be witness to a UK exclusive show from Brazilian “depressive black metal” band Thy Light, a return to the UK with an exclusive show from German black metallers Ultha, a UK exclusive set from Bavarian-based Waldgeflüster, a UK exclusive set from Sweden’s Dödsrit, UK black metal act Blood Countess, the solo music project of Norwegian metal multi-instrumentalist Kathrine Shepard: Sylvaine, Obsidian Kingdom with a UK exclusive ‘Mantiis' full album set, Fellwarden with its worldwide live debut, Lamp of Murmuur with a UK exclusive performance, Falls of Rauros with their first ever UK show, Danish atmospheric black metal band Sunken and UK black-death-doom act Abyssal.

The First of June. 2024... Under the watchful gaze of the carrion crows that beset the castle’s crumbling battlements… the hordes of darkness will stir. The mournful bells of the woebegone church will ring out upon the hillside: soon to be lost amid the ravenous battery of an ancient warlord. And from the ashes of the past, a new stronghold will arise… “Fortress…”
