Metal Injection have announced the debut of their own two-day festival. The inaugural Metal Injection Festival is set to take place on September 16th-17th in Orange County, CA, held at two venues, The Observatory and House of Blues Anaheim. Tickets for the Saturday event at The Observatory are on sale now for $35. Tickets for the Sunday festivities held at the House of Blues Anaheim will go on sale tomorrow (16th) at 10:00 AM.M. PDT at $50 per ticket.  

Metal Injection founder and company director Frank Godla comments:

“I’ve always dreamed of having my own festival as a kid, I mean what metal head hasn’t!? I even wrote it down on a future goal plan for Metal Injection in the early days. When my Slay At Home virtual fest really took off during the pandemic, and reached communities in over 60 countries, it suddenly seemed possible, even overdue. Today, I bring you the first ever Metal Injection Festival. Two days days of killer bands ranging from thrash, death, industrial, hardcore, and more from legendary names to the ones worth discovering. We’ll also have some really sweet giveaways, a learning area for amazing causes I believe in, and special setlists including the legendary Max & Iggor Cavalera performing Morbid Visions and Bestial Devastation records in entirety, and Fear Factory celebrating their game changing Demanufacture and 25th anniversary of Obsolete with us! Every new endeavor has to start somewhere, and I couldn’t be more stoked to have this group of amazing bands be part of MI history!”
