Decibel Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles FAQs

Exactly two weeks from today, those who were wise enough to acquire tickets to see Armored Saint, Night Demon, Uada and Persekutor at the Troubador for the official Decibel Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles Pre-Fest will help us kick off the inaugural west coast version of the event. In exactly two weeks and one day, we’ll all be at the Wiltern for an unforgettable, extremely extreme weekend of music featuring Testament, Triptykon, Godflesh, The Black Dahlia Murder, Yob and more.

To make things as smooth and stress-free as possible, we’ve prepared an FAQ that should answer any questions you have. If you don’t have tickets, get them here! For those who do, we’ll see you in the Pig Destroyer pit.

What are my ticket options?
You can purchase a one- or two-day “Metal & Beer Ticket,” which allows you to watch all bands performing. It also gives you access to samples from all 20 breweries who will be at Decibel Metal and Beer Fest, as well as access to all breweries and bars plus a Decibel Metal and Beer Fest tasting cup.

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.

How much does it cost?
“Metal & Beer” tickets are $90 for one day and $175 for both.

“Just Metal” tickets are $50 for one day and $95 for both.

If you bought four craft beers at the fest, you would be spending more than $40. The “Metal and Beer Ticket” pays for itself and then some!

Are the breweries in an area separate from the bands?
No, Decibel Metal & Beer Fest is a fully integrated fan experience. You can walk over to the 3 Floyds table, sample a “Blood of the Sunsets” beer, co-brewed by At the Gates, WHILE you watch At the Gates!
