The Cambridgeshire five-piece have just finished their biggest headline UK tour yet, which capped off a very successful year for the band.  During the last twelve months they have vastly increased their fan base with the help of their new music and promotion from big name fans such as Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton. Couple this with high-profile shows this year supporting A Day To Remember, playing Reading and Leeds Festival and being featured during “Even More Music Month” on BBC Radio 1, and it is easy to see why Mallory Knox are one of Britain’s new favourite rock bands.

To top it all off, 27th October brought around the release of their second studio album, Asymmetry, and gave the band their first top 20 album in the official charts.

The festival will be followed by the famed and ever-popular UPRAWR Aftershow in The Cube after the final act on The Cube Stage has finished.  This will give attendees the chance to party and mingle with the acts and fellow fans.  Tickets can be brought alongside the festival ticket.  The Aftershow is a strictly 18+ event, however.

Wristband Exchange will be open from 12.30pm and the doors will open at 1.30pm.  The event will finish around 10.30pm but this is subject to change. Tickets can be purchased here.
