The Brink to play mainstage at WinterStorm 2019


The Brink have been confirmed as returnees to WinterStorm 2019 after a massive set on the South Beqach Sessions stage in 2018.

2019 is year four of the Classic Rock Weekend WinterStorm held at the end of November each year in the Scottish seaside town of Troon on the west coast of Scotland.

The first three years of the independent event has seen it punching above its weight with an admirable line up of rock legends gracing the stage and an equally talented line up of young up and coming rock bands alongside.

2019 Line Up information

The line-up for the fourth year of the event has been knocking rock fans across the UK and beyond for six with tickets sent out to Coast Rica, Norway, Iceland, the States, Wales, England, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Ireland, Northern Ireland and from all parts of Scotland. Local hotels have sold out their rooms and the trains from Glasgow will see an influx of music fans.

The main stage features seventeen bands over the two days across genres and as well as the main headline acts will introduce some superb unsigned bands.

The weekend features some of the most famous names in rock and includes Skid Row, Last in Line, FM, Uli Jon Roth and HEAT..

Classic rock bands from the past are represented in spades – Pete Way, Zal Cleminson, Diamond Head, Praying Mantis and Tygers of Pan Tang and of course the WinterStorm “House band” featuring Chris Glen, Dougie White and Paul McManus will be closing the Saturday night with some very, very special St Andrew’s Night guest this year.

The Amorettes, Pat Mcmanus Band, The Rising Souls, Outlaw Orchestra and The Brink complete the main stage line up.

And this year there is a full second stage with more rock talent on show than ever before: Toi, Darkness Divine, Ablaze, Swamp Born Assasins, Uproar, Tomorrow is Lost, Gin Annie fill the Friday while Saturday features Mad Haven, iDestroy, Baleful Creed, Everyday Heroes, Dead Man’s Whiskey, Joanovarc and Hollowstar

The event is being MC’d once again by the legendary rock DJ Tom Russell who jumped at the chance to be involved once more.

“I think it’s magnificent that a town like Troon has put itself firmly on the Rock map and it this event gets the support it’ll be great not only for rock fans from all over the UK and beyond but also for local businesses and tourism. It’ll be great fun to get down the coast again for the weekend, listen to some wonderful musicians and get that Ayrshire sea air.”

“It’s great that it’s not only the named and older bands that are on show. I can’t wait to see the young bands – Hollowstar, Dead Man’s Whiskey and Everyday Heroes for example. It’s probably one of the best and most diverse rock weekends in the whole of the UK”
