Metal Insider’s Top 5: Defunct Touring Festivals

Posted by on July 8, 2013

4. Projekt Revolution

In 2002, the Projekt Revolution tour started off simply as a Linkin Park headlining tour with Cypress Hill, Adema and DJ Z-Trip (and a relatively similar structure in 2003). But by 2004, Linkin Park expanded the tour into a two stage amphitheater summer festival tour, making it the only tour where you could see Korn and Funeral For A Friend on the same bill as Snoop Dog and Less Than Jake.  But just like Linkin Park, the tour became less heavy with bands like My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday and HIM taking over the 2007 edition of the tour. Projekt Revolution lasted one more year after that in the States (finding Chris Cornell and Busta Rhymes on the same stage), but has ceased to exist since 2008 (minus the 2011 European version).
