Curated by Greg Anderson (Southern Lord) and Sam James Velde (Night Horse) with the intent to blur the lines between Metal, Hardcore, Punk and Rock music. To celebrate and encourage the cross over of genres and to dispel the common homogeny that exists within today’s music cultures. A free event that honors fans and musicians of ‘heavy music’ of all ages. Tapping into a line up that represents the forefathers, milestones and current touring acts such as Repulsion, Corrosion Of Conformity, From Ashes Rise, Trap Them, Coliseum and Goatsnake. Shedding light on ‘up and coming’ acts such as Nails,The Fucking Wrath, Night Horse, Eagle Twin and Black Breath to name a few.
