Army of Walking Corpses play the Dark Waters Festival on Saturday 12 May
Following the huge success of last year’s debut festival, The Nottingham Ministry of Goth are proud to present Dark Waters Alternative Festival 2012. This year's festival takes place over three days from 11 through to 13 May at The Britannia Boat Club on the banks of the River Trent. The festival aims to showcase a variety of styles and musical influences under the 'umbrella' of Goth and dark alternative music.
Friday 11 May
The Dogbones (featuring ex Daisy Chainsaw/Queen Adreena members) bring their own mix of garage-glam, punky, spunky and primal pop to the festival. From Doncaster, we have new wave/post punk band UV PoP. AlterRed will be mixing electronic beats and sounds with avant garde piano, and topping it off with strong and soaring vocals. Cambridge based dark wave/electro Goth act Last July, plus Nottingham's own Gina Stone with her own brand of darkwave/electro/synth pop.
Saturday 12 May
Music from UK based Goth band Pretentious, Moi?. French deathrock act The Cemetary Girlz give a rare UK performance. Artrocker favourites Cold in Berlin. Powerful dark electronic group Global Citizen turn things dark, moody, twisted and sexy. Plus local horrorpunk outfit Army of Walking Corpses, who are planning a few surprises for the festival audience.
Sunday 13 May
Live music from Industrial electronic act Mechanical Cabaret. German electronic/synthpop/ebm trio Technoir. Release the Bats bring a devilishly dark fusion of glam/goth/rock for their first visit to Nottingham.
