Milwaukee Metal Festival was once one of the fans favorite metal festivals, but sadly the last time it took place was in 2007.
Luckily this year, thanks to Hatebreed’s frontman Jamey Jasta purchasing the rights for the event, the festival will be brought back to life on 2023 May 26, 27, and 28.
Jasta stated: “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 May 26, 27, and 28, it returns with a stacked line up and a new lease on life. I cannot wait to see all the bands and hang with everyone in Milwaukee. I’m so grateful for 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!”
Borror adds: “Milwaukee Metal Fest was such a huge part of the metal culture back in the day, and it really helped a lot of bands. It was always at The Rave and the combo is iconic. Working with Jamey, the great people at The Rave and all the bands to bring it back in 2023 is fucking incredible. This is going to be a great event, don’t miss it!”
So far the line-up is killer, with headliners like Lamb of God, Anthrax and Suicidal Tendencies.
Many other bands will also be performing like: Napalm Death, Dark Angel, The Black Dahlia Murder, Obituary, Shadows Fall, Corrosion of Conformity, Fear Factory, After the Burial, The Halo Effect, Dying Fetus, Immolation, Crowbar, Vio-Lence, Goatwhore, Jungle Rot, Misery Index, Broken Hope, Terror, Macabre, Gatecreeper, Sanguisugabogg, Frozen Soul, Defeated Sanity, Dying Wish, Khemmis, Undeath, Blood Incantation, Imperial Triumphant, Impaler, Fuming Mouth, Ingrown, HATH, Repentance, Casket Robbery, Disinter, Thrown Into Exhile and Toxic Ruin.
