23 to 24 July, Victoria Park, London
Bands to watch: Slash, Dream Theater, Black Country Communion, Judas Priest, Rivals Sons
It may be sponsored by TG’s sister mag, Classic Rock, but High Voltage is on this list for its own merits. And not least among those is that it’s running a beer festival within a music festival – it’s like the perfect storm.
Music-wise, there’s Slash, John Petrucci and Joe Bonamassa all appearing at the same event. On top of that, you’ve got Judas Priest’s last ever UK festival appearance and a selection of TG’s favourite up-and-coming bands, including Rival Sons, Von Hertzen Brothers and Primitai.
