Rock and metal festivals are doing quite well for themselves and for the artists that perform at them. For the price of one ticket you get to see multiple acts usually giving the fans a full stage production and a lot of bang for their buck. Joining the ranks of such festivals as the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, The Uproar Festival, and the Lollapalooza festival in 2014 will be the Summer’s Even Metal Festival. The Summer’s Eve Metal Festival was the brainchild of Summer’s Eve marketing director Harry Panocha. We contacted Panocha about the 2014 Summer’s Eve Metal Festival to get the scoop on the festival and what we can expect from it.
“When I took my 14 year old son Mojado to this summer’s Mayhem Festival, I was blown away by the caliber of artists. I was also floored at how many kids were out there having a great time in the sun, kicking up dust in the mosh pit, and enjoying freebies from vendors and I just couldn’t believe that this wasn’t something Summer’s Eve had tapped into yet. I reach out to a handful of bands such as Papa Roach, HellYeah!, and Avenged Sevenfold, all of who I thought would be perfect for the Summer’s Eve Metal Festival and all of them were really excited to be a part of it! The only one that didn’t seem into it all was Rob Zombie. He told us to fuck off. The most exciting part of it all is that Five Finger Death Punch will be headlining all dates on this tour and I couldn’t think of a better band to carry the Summer’s Eve name. The festival will hit major cities with an amphitheater so be ready to rock!”
Lead singer for the festival’s headlining band Five Finger Death Punch had this to say:
“Being a part of the 2014 Summer’s Eve Metal Fest is an honor and I can’t think of a better name to represent the Death Punch! We are looking forward to killing all the posers out there, drinking a bunch of beers and maybe fucking other guys girlfriend’s backstage while they wait out at the car for us to finish with them. This is how the Death Punch rolls and we will be rolling through your town on the 2014 Summer’s Eve Metal Fest so be ready son!”
On sale dates and tour dates for the 2014 Summer’s Eve Metal Festival will be revealed soon and tickets can be purchased at all ticket outlets online and in person!
