Festival director Gavin McInally said: "Unsurprisingly, Anathema are a much sought-after band and we're delighted that they agreed to play Damnation this year. With Therapy? already confirmed for the Jagermeister Stage it's a great double-billing for our heavy rock fans who support the event. Manatees will bring to the mix their blend of soul-crushing progressive sludge in what is shaping up to be our most eclectic lineup yet."
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
A Storm Of Light
Extreme Noise Terror
This Will Destroy You
