With a snap general election looming there’s no better time to focus on sleaze. But forget Westminster – and welcome to the latest batch of bands signed up to play 2017’s dirtiest new festival!

HRH Sleaze makes its noisy debut at Sheffield O2 Academy in September. And a raft of new names have been added to a bill already boasting godfathers of the genre Faster Pussycat plus Vain, Love/Hate and Tyla’s Dogs D’Amour.

From September 2-3 2017 HRH Sleaze will welcome Swedish power rockers Bai Bang, female-fronted hard rockers Chasing Dragons, the dynamic Spread Eagle, the down and dirty rock of Gasoline Queen and The Cruel Intentions.

“Once again we’ve listened to the fans and taken our lead from them,” said HRH boss Jonni Davis. “Sleaze has gone down so well when it’s been played at other HRH events that we’ve given it its own festival!

“And we’ve been building up a seriously badass line-up. HRH likes it loud and Sleaze delivers quantity and quality: volume and talent in spades.”

Other class acts already announced include: Tigertailz, Crazy Lixx, Sister, Bulletrain, Stop Stop, Wildside Riot, Kaato, New Generation Superstars, Daxx & Roxane, Devilfire, New Device, 44 Caliber and Superhooch.

With only 86 weekend passes left this looks like another HRH sell-out so book soon to avoid disappointment: online at www.hrhsleaze.com or ring Sam on 0207 193 1307.
