Although Beat:Cancer is over for the foreseeable future, the fight is not. Together with Cosmic: Hard dance and other events, Elektro Vox seeks to carry on supporting the great cause; and in doing so, continuing to bring you some fantastic industrial bands. Elektro Vox Music Festival (or EVM Fest for short) will see in the first year anniversary of Elektro Vox bringing you interviews, reviews, and news!
Chamaeleon will be performing for us in their UK debut! As well as other fantastic bands who are all bringing you their music for two reasons..
1. For the love of the industrial scene and the fans.
2. Because every single one of us will be affected by cancer in our life time, be it ourselves, a family member, or a loved one / friend. it affects us all and the terrible tragedy and loss that it brings.
For many of you who may have seen some of these bands before, don't just think this is another show. The Beat:Cancer cause has always brought out the best performances from artists both from the UK and worldwide; Notto mention there will be plenty of surprises in store, including Karkasaurs catering to far more mashed up industrial than you will have experienced from them before.
Please join us, spread the word, share our event, invite your friends lists, buy advance tickets etc and Support the bands in their charitable cause.
Help us make this a success so that Elektro Vox can bring you more EVM Festivals with many more bands and keep the Beat:Cancer spirit and industrial rave alive. Thank you!

Having been one of the hardest working bands around in recent times, the band goes from strength to strength pulling in more and more fans wherever they go. Their sound is unique, their personality is charming, and the set will no doubt be fire.
Auger are Kyle Wilson (24)(vocals, programming and live keyboards) and Kieran Thornton (24) (Guitars and backing vocals).AUGER burst onto a unsuspecting scene in mid 2017 with their double sided debut single "My Guardian / New Life" (Rebco Records) quickly followed by their debut album "The Awakening" (Rebco). Both releases enjoyed critical acclaim and substantial air play on both scene radio shows worldwide and at club nights. For those very early plays the band will always be extremely grateful.
They perfected their stage craft with a series of high profile support slots around the UK with the likes of Cruxshadows, Gothminister, Ost + Front, Solar Fake, Massive Ego, Sulpher and Young Gods, culminating in being chosen as UK tour support for Lord Of The Lost.
As a result of all this activity they were picked up by Dark Tunes Music Group (Germany)for a three album deal. This saw their debut album' The Awakening' being remixed, re mastered and re released worldwide in mid 2018. It spent 8 weeks in the German Alternative Chart (DAC) reaching No 3.It was now time for the band to step out on the wider European stage which has seen them play in Belgium (Wave Festival), The Netherlands (with both Mesh & She Past Away), Finland (Lumous Festival), Estonia (Darkland Fire Festival), Malta (Dark Malta Festival with Lord Of The Lost), Austria (Schattenwelt Festival), and many show's in Germany (including tour supports with Stoneman & Clan of Xymox)
A new single and video was released in the run up to their second album called 'Find My Own Way Out'. This spent 8 weeks in the DAC reaching the hallowed No1 spot. Their second album was released mid 2019 entitled 'From Now On I', complete with a animated video for 'When We Are Apart'. The album reached No5 in the DAC, meaning both albums to date had now gone top five.
