Following the launch of the UK’s new prestige rock festival, in 2010, High Voltage returns in 2011 with exclusive performances from headliners Judas Priest and Dream Theater, UK festival exclusives from Black Country Communion, Jethro Tull, Queensryche, Thunder, Neal Morse and Spock’s Beard and performances from Slash, Thin Lizzy, Michael Schenker group, John Lee’s Barclay James Harvest, Skin, Rival Sons, Amplifier, Von Hertzen Brothers, Caravan, The Enid, Pallas, Saint Jude, Anathema, Curved Air, Mostly Autumn, Neurosis, Electric Wizard, Evile, Grand Magus, Raven’s Creed, Primitai, Attica Rage, Black Spiders, Gentlemens Pistols and Furyon.

The further acts announced are;

Graveyard (Metal Stage)
When Swedish doom/stoner outfit Norrsken split up in 2000 it gave birth to two new bands – one being Graveyard. Playing all sorts of rockish music makes Graveyard stand out from the crowd – be it classic rock, blues, jazz. With wide influences spreading throughout different genres such as Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Black Sabbath. Graveyard don’t just count on their neo satanic attitude or revived old school imagery, Graveyard deliver it all along with stunning tunes that take you on a journey to a long lost decade of true musicianship.

Sylosis (Metal Stage)
Sylosis are at the forefront of the UK metal scene. From the critical acclaimed debut album “Conclusion Of An Age”, the band have proved themselves a stunning live act (touring with the likes of Dragonforce, AS I Lay Dying, Fear Factory and The Black Dahlia Murder). The band will be supporting their second album “Edge Of the Earth”

The Treatment (Metal Stage)
The Treatment were formed in 2008, when founder member drummer Dhani  Mansworth was still at school in Cambridge . Although only 15 at the time he already had a clear vision of the kind of band he wanted to form. Having grown up on a diet of ACDC, Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith he began to put  the band together under the watchful eye of his father guitarist and manager Laurie Mansworth (More, Airrace, Roadstar). This young Cambridge based five piece showcase all the best elements of rock and classic rock. A stunning live band.

Triggerfinger (Metal Stage)
The Antwerp three piece, vocalist/guitarist Ruben Block, drummer Mario Goossens and bassist Paul Van Bruystegem, are set to show there is more to Belgium than, um, waffles. In much the same way as counterparts dEUS and Millionaire, Triggerfinger create a diverse and compelling amalgam of influences – in Triggerfingers case; alternative rock, blues, stoner riffs and garage rock sensibilities. The band are set to unleash their debut UK release, “All This Dancing Around”, in June 2011
