Consisting of old and new members of the MOR crew, Henchman Promotions has dredged the Monsters of Rot festival from the Fermanagh bog to return for its 5th instalment in 2015. Henchman Promotions and Monsters of Rot V team are teaming up with Planetmosh, The Oaks Recording Studio, and Irish Metal Archive to congeal the most depraved and disgusting lineup of underground reprobates from around Ireland, UK & Europe!

Monsters of Rot is gonna thrash you, slam you, stone you, and drag you kicking and screaming through sludge, death and doom!!! This years’ Monsters of Rot is a one day event with camping. It takes place on Saturday 1st of August, and coincides with the August bank holiday, so you’ll have extra time to recover, if you’re able to recover at all!

Monsters of Rot V takes place in The Halfway Inn, Letterbreen Co. Fermanagh, which is just 4 miles outside Fermanagh’s main town, Enniskillen. The venue will feature 2 bars, a marquee, campsite, fast food catering (including vegan options), merch area, disabled access and portaloos, body piercing, poi artists, activities and much more! There is also a shop/petrol station with cash machine situated less than 100 meters from the venue. There will be a local taxi company on standby, ready to ferry festival goers to wherever they need to go.

Henchman Promotions will have Security, Marshals and first aiders on standby throughout the entire event, to ensure everyone’s convenience and safety.
