I think we all have a particular band we’re most excited for, but for me, seeing Integrity for the first time in ages will be a highlight.”

You may also purchase a one- or two- day “Just Metal” ticket (limited to 500 each day) that grants you access to all four bars on the first floor, as well as the ability to see each band playing. You will also have the opportunity to purchase samples of featured breweries from the bar.
