Saturday 23 July 2011 — Sunday 24 July 2011
Victoria Park, London, E9, United Kingdom
Classic Rock’s award-winning High Voltage festival will return in 2011 – and today we can reveal the two main headline attractions: Judas Priest and Dream Theater.
High Voltage is set to take place on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, 2011 in Victoria Park, London.
Brummie heavy metal veterans Judas Priest will headline the main stage on the 23rd. Thirty-one years after they sealed their reputation as one of the world’s great festival acts with their performance at the inaugural Monsters Of Rock event, the band have chosen High Voltage as the sole UK festival date on their ‘Epitaph’ farewell tour.
Progressive metal titans Dream Theater will headline the main stage on the 24th. High Voltage 2011 will mark the first UK performance of their new line-up following the departure of drummer and founding member Mike Portnoy.
Of course, High Voltage is much more than just the bands. As part of the HV experience we are pleased to announce the first two on-site attractions…
Ace Café London will return to High Voltage in 2011 with a bigger, bolder area offering drinks, food and generous seating, all set within the surroundings of the historic Ace Café London experience.
The True Evel Exhibition will be dedicated to Evel Knievel, the original motorcycle daredevil. On display will be Evel’s original motorcycles, jump leathers, personal memorabilia and more.
Like last year’s inaugural festival featuring ZZ Top and Emerson Lake & Palmer, High Voltage 2011 will be custom-built by rock fans for rock fans.
The facilities will be second to none: great food, proper beer, clean toilets, deluxe hospitality packages, designated hotels, free shuttle transport. This is somewhere you can take the whole family.
Only High Voltage gives ticket buyers the freedom to design their own bespoke festival package – which can include accommodation, transport, parking and VIP bar access.
Tickets are priced £99 (for weekend tickets) and £56.50 (for day tickets). VIP tickets will be available at £105 for the day and £199 for the weekend. There will also be various VIP and hotel packages available, at varying price levels to suit. There is no booking fee for tickets.
