Almageddon is an annual event held at the Alma Inn, on Bradshawgate in Bolton Town Centre. The venue is notorious amongst members of the heavier music community and boasts an intense sound system. The Alma has been supporting acts for many years, from local unsigned bands playing their first gig to touring international acts. This year’s Almageddon festival falls close to Halloween and so expect season fancy dress antics to set the scene for a plethora of loud metal bands from accross the UK.

You can check out the bands’ individual Facebook pages and of course your ear plugs can be bought in advance from Booth’s Music store. Entry to Almageddon is £4.00 and the noise begins at 2PM.
