Between the 29th and 31st October Halloween shouldn’t be the only thing on your calendar. Instead the Relentless Freeze Festival should take pride of place as it returns to Battersea bigger and better than ever before for 2010.

With an impressive lineup of bands, DJs and MCs to match the head-spinning winter sports to be showcased at the festival, the Relentless Freeze Festival promises to be a uniquely alternative way to spend the Halloween weekend.
