Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival, known as the first true European-style open air fest for extreme music fans in the US will return for another year this September. The event will be held at the Cave In Rock, IL’s Hogrock Campground on September 4th through 7th. You don’t want to miss this year’s lineup as it includes Soulfly, Vio-lence, Kataklysm, Grave, M.O.D, Exhorder, Ringworm, Krisiun and many more.
Ticket packages includes a two day GA passes for September 6th & 7th starting at $79.99, including access to camping. Additional pricing for two, three and four day GA passes, pre-party passes, ultimate VIP passes, and more is currently available on the event’s website.
The event will feature costume contests, a morbid metal market, food vendors, after parties, a DJ, and the festival is a BYOB/BYOA.
Billy Milano of M.O.D. expressed his excitement:
“We’re really excited to finally get back on the road after four years. Going out and celebrating 30 years of M.O.D. and 30 years of S.O.D. at the Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival is going to be a fitting tribute to my 92-year-old mother who I lost to cancer in September, who always encouraged me and made me fight on. I’m doing Full Terror Assault for the fans and for my mother and father. M.O.D. is going to bring the fucking pain.”
Jason VieBrooks of Exhorder added:
“It’s such a great honor for Exhorder to share the stage with so many killer bands at a festival in the U.S. that is really close to the likes of a European festival. I played FTA with War Curse a few years ago and the staff and crew were top notch! Thrash is back!”
BB Plaza of Crisix commented:
“We did hundreds of shows in Europe, South America and even played in Africa and in September this year we are coming for an exclusive festival performance in the USA – Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival. We like the concept of the festival a lot. This year they have a killer line up. It will be fun to see Billy Milano with M.O.D., but I am most looking forward to see the Vio-lence reunion. They mean a lot to us, and to me personally. They are one of the most influential Bay Area thrash bands and I am so happy we are playing together. I promise that we will deliver a killer show at FTA 2019, and we invite you all to come mosh with us. We will be at the festival for the weekend and will be happy to hang out with you all. Ultra fucking thrash!”
