17:00 - Inkubus Sukkubus
Inkubus Sukkubus need no introduction! They've traveled the world with their distinctive brand of Gothic Pagan folk rock, from Mexico to Russia, Australia to the USA, Scandinavia to Europe, and they'll be bringing it to you on August 7th at Pagan Pride UK 2016 Festival!
In exciting news, the band released their new album, Barrow Wake, on the 20th of June, and you'll have the chance to buy a copy and get it signed on the day.
Barrow Wake is a return to Inkubus Sukkubus's dark folklore roots, and explores both general British mythology, and some peculiarly Gloucestershire dark tales in songs like Forest Hill and Witch of Berkeley.
