American hard rockers FOZZY (featuring WWE’s wrestling superstar Chirs Jericho on vocals) will be main support.  Now with 7 studio albums under their belts and an ever growing fan base they will be one of the ones to watch on the day: Here’s what Chris Jericho had to say about the event:

“Let me ask you this Fozzy fanatics…what’s the best way for us to end off yet another crackin Fozzy UK tour and kick off the holiday season? How about starting a war with hundreds of our closest friends (onstage and off) in Sheffield at Winter Rocks?? Sounds GREAT to me!! Father Christmas has already text me for comp tix and I told him to fuck off and get in line with everybody else…YOU guys get the presents this year at WINTERROCKS!! See you there for a Merry ChristJerichomass!”

The excitement of Fozzy playing the festival has been heightened by the news that they will be bringing US metal heavyweights NONPOINT with them to play the event.  Another established touring band that will be bringing their electric show to the Corporation stage: Elias Soriano from Nonpoint is excited about the day: “If you’ve never seen us before be fucking ready. It’s goanna be one crazy, sweaty, hair swinging, beer drinking, ass kicking, sing along night like you won’t believe. Bring an extra pair of underwear… You’ll need em.”

Nominated for the best new band award by Classic Rock Magazine, CROBOT are a fast rising band with a big reputation. With so much hype and excitement about them, this is a real chance to remember where you saw them first.

Texan rockers Scorpion Child will also be joining the WinterRocks main stage: “Who’s going to be at Winter Rocks 2015? That’s right, we are! Hopefully all of you will come out and celebrate this amazing lineup with us. We couldn’t be more excited! See you soon Sheffield!” Aryn Jonathan Black – Scorpion Child

TAX THE HEAT are more proof of the current thriving UK rock scene.  Add in The Graveltones to that mix, the two-piece Australian / London are definitely not to be missed.

The rise of female fronted rock bands are in abundance at Corporation this December too with American band SUMO CYCO joining the UK’s THE DIRTY YOUTH and SKARLETT RIOT at Corporation. All now masters of the touring circuit.
