RFTK PROMOTIONS have taken up the mantle to find the best breaking bands in the Newcastle region for Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses 2016.  Holding heats throughout the City and hosting the final at the fabulous THE CLUNY venue on Friday 17th June – this is a long overdue viit to the North East and promises to be a stormer.

Bands looking to enter need to get in touch with Kev at or contact the venue on 0191 230 4474 – dont delay as spaces will fill fast.


The Cluny is a 300 capacity venue in the heart of the Ouseburn valley, it deals with a diverse range of bands of many genres – everything from folk and jazz through to extreme metal (they’ve hosted the infamous Byker Grave festival) – an excellent live music venue.

RFTK Promotions formed in 2006 with the purpose of bringing bands to Newcastle that would not otherwise play (we’ve all been there “My favourite band is touring and they’re not playing here – this sucks”) well – we set out to do something about it – and, nearly 200 gigs later – I think we’ve made a good impression. Bands of all shapes and sizes from Sebastian Bach to small pub bands – and across many genres : Goth, Industrial, Glam, Classic bands, new up and coming bands.


The Metal 2 The Masses is sponsored by HOBGOBLIN ALE … along with support from METAL HAMMER, DEAN GUITARS, VOCALZONE, STAMPEDE PR, VERY METAL ART & GET YA ROCK OUT
