Last year, Hatebreed frontman and popular podcaster Jamey Jasta purchased the rights to Milwaukee Metal Fest and revealed plans to relaunch the heralded event. Today (January 30th), the lineup and other details have been announced, and it has all the making of a massively fun headbanging time.
Set to play are Lamb of God, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Napalm Death, Dark Angel, the Black Dahlia Murder, Obituary, Shadows Fall, Corrosion of Conformity, Fear Factory, After the Burial and many more. It'll all go down on Memorial Day weekend (May 26th, 27th, and 28th) at The Rave/Eagles club. Tickets and more info are available here.
"The infamous Milwaukee Metal Fest created so many memories, hosted legendary bands, and gave up and comers something to aspire to. Memorial Day Weekend 2023 — it returns with a stacked lineup and a new lease on life," Jasta commented. "I cannot wait to see all the bands and hang with everyone in Milwaukee. I'm so grateful for [booking agent] Tim Borror and the Sound Talent Crew; and Leslie, Joe, and everyone at The Rave/Eagles for helping us put this event together. Milwaukee Metal Fest is back! See you in Wisconsin this May!"
