Marilyn Manson is set to headline next year's Alt-Fest.

The appearance will be Manson's only UK festival appearance in 2014. The new hard rock, industrial and metal event will take place from August 15-17, 2014, at Boughton Estate in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Of Manson's appearance, festival organiser Dominic Void has said: "We are ecstatic to have booked Marilyn Manson to headline for our first year; this means a lot to us and particularly our fans. At Alt-Fest we like to be ground breaking and promised our supporters a massive Christmas Day present in the form of a big announcement and here it is!"

Also playing Alt-Fest are Arch Enemy, Breed77, Cradle of Filth, Covenant, Fearless Vampire Killers, Fields of the Nephilim, Killing Joke, My Ruin and Peter Hook & The Light. For more information visit

Meanwhile, the trailer for Wrong Cops, the forthcoming film featuring Marilyn Manson, has recently been revealed. In the clip, which you can watch below, Manson appears as a young music fan who befriends a corrupt policeman. As well as acting in the release, Manson also features on the soundtrack, alongside French chart-topper Mr Oizo and Gaspard Augé.

Mr Oizo, who hit the Number One spot on the Official UK Singles Chart with 'Flat Beat' in 1999, now works under his real name Quentin Dupieux and is also the creator behind Wrong Cops. Manson and Dupieux have worked together in the past, pairing up on the latter's 2013 single 'Solid'. Meanwhile, Augé contributes two tracks to the score in 'Crows & Guts' and 'Polocaust'.
