Here’s the latest round of updates from across the VZ Family network.


VZ Artists takeover Download Festival!

Each year, hundreds of acts enter ‘Takeover at Download’ to be in with a chance of playing at the iconic rock festival itself.

The winners of this years competition have just been announced, and VZ Artist Haxan will be playing at Download Fetival! Haxan have had a busy year, having been hand picked by Status Quo as their main support act at Leechdale Festival, alongside a busy performance schedule.

A massive congratulations to them for this excellent achievement. Other VZ Artists appearing at various points of the weekend include Conjurer, Vega, Yours Truly and Wolf Jaw.

HRH Roadtrip – Ibiza

The HRH Roadtrip is back! From the organisers of the HRH Festival, the roadtrip will be descending on Ibiza, where rock and metal artists will be performing in the world-famous party destination! This year’s event will be headlined by Hawkwind for their 50 anniversary of their first world tour! Also performing are VZ Artists Raging Speedhorn, Desert Storm, Everyday Heros and Ryders Creed!

We’re pretty jealous that we can’t get our accounts team to sign off on the air fare for this one… Have a great show!


Breaking Bands Festival 

Breaking Bands Festival takes place later this month over bank holiday weekend. The festival is based in Worcester and has sold out for the fifth year in a row!
