Kiwi metal festival Westfest has announced a venue change, and a lengthy list of new acts to join headliners Soundgarden and Faith No More.

To be held on Tuesday, March 3, Westfest is moving from Alexandra Park to Mt Smart Stadium due to "greater public interest than anticipated".

Joining Soundgarden and Faith No More on the bill are Judas Priest, Fall Out Boy, Lamb Of God, All Time Low, Papa Roach, Antemasque, Fear Factory, The Devil Wears Prada, Escape The Fate, Animals As Leaders, Lagwagon, Frenzal Rhomb, The Wonder Years and Crown the Empire, 8 Foot Sativa and Kitsch.
