Over the past few years, America has been going through an amazing boom of metal festivals throughout the country and we just can’t be happier about it. With the success and massive support these events have received lately, it’s logical that others would jump on board with the idea and the latest one to organize their own is a veteran in the American metal scene.
Decibel Magazine just revealed the launch of their first annual Decibel Metal & Beer Festival, which will take place on April 22-23 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia. Just like the name suggests, the festival will consist of bands playing during the two-day event and micro-breweries from around the country serving the most metal selections that they offer. The lineup confirmed goes as follows:
Fall Of Rauros
Holy Mountain (WA)
Hoof Hearted (OH)
Neshaminy Creek (PA)
Burnt Hickory (GA)
Tired Hands (PA)
Three Weavers (CA)
18th Street (IN)
Cigar City (FL)
One of the most exciting and unique aspects of this event is the support Decibel has received from the craft beer pioneers at Unibroue. The Quebec-based brewery partnered with Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine to brew the recently released Belgian-style dry hopped saison A Tout Le Monde, based on the thrash legends’ iconic song of the same name. Unibroue Brewmaster Jerry Vietz will be making a special appearance at the event to pour A Tout Le Monde and discuss the featured beer with attendees and press.
Since this is a metal and beer fest, there will be two ticketing options for each day. The “Metal and Beer” ticket—limited to 500 per day—gives you access to pours from all of the breweries, as well as admittance to that day’s show. The “Just Metal” option just gives you access to the show. Those that buy the “Just Metal” tickets can still purchase beers from selected participating breweries on-tap at the venue.
