Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Danville, Virginia, September 9-12, 2021

A relatively new festival that has grown enormously in the past couple of years is the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Virginia. This year the festival will be held at a new venue, the Blue Ridge Amphitheater in Danville, Virginia.

Headliners are Megadeth, Breaking Benjamin, Rob Zombie, Limp Bizkit, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, and Papa Roach.

Other bands I am lining up to see at the festival are Clutch, Black Label Society, Halestorm, Testament, Hatebreed, Anthrax, Lamb of God, Fever 333, Saul, Nonpoint, Beartooth, Corrosion of Conformity, Mastodon, The Hu, Killswitch Engage, and Gojira, plus an enormous number of other great acts. I think there are more bands at this festival than any other in North America this year. It is an incredible lineup.

While the festival is sold out, you can check out the link below for more information. You know how this works – if you want a ticket you can still get one because people will be buying and selling them.

Someone (me) from Shardik Media will be at the festival. See you in the crowd.

Louder Than Life Festival, Louisville, September 23-26, 2021

The big show this year at the Highland Festival Grounds in Louisville is Louder Than Life, returning with a bigger show than ever before.

Stretching over four days this year as a return bonus after missing last year, the big news at Louder Than Life is that Metallica will be playing both on Friday and Sunday nights – and they are playing different sets each night.

Thursday night the headliner is Korn and Nine Inch Nails is the feature on Saturday. Other big hitters taking the stage over the weekend include Judas Priest, Snoop Dogg, Staind, Jane’s Addiction, Killswitch engage, Anthrax, Beartooth, Ghostemane, Sabaton, Cypress Hill, and loads more.

You can still get tickets to Louder Than Life (at this writing). Check out the link below.

Psycho Las Vegas, August 19-22, 2021

Festivals are getting going again in the US and the first big stop to make is Psycho Las Vegas.

Missing a year of Psycho Las Vegas is a wound that can be salved by heading to Nevada next month for one the of the best heavy line-ups around. During the 2019 festival, The Mandalay Bay operated three stages – one in the arena, one at the House of Blues in the casino complex, and another in a lounge. All very different vibes and all full-on musical bliss. I am expecting this again in 2021.

The headliners for 2021 are Emperor, Down, and Danzig. Other bands I am excited to see this year are Exodus, Cannibal Corpse, High On Fire, The Sword, Red Fang, Obituary, Pig Destroyer, Eyehatehod, and far too many others to mention. For heavy music fans, Psycho Las Vegas has become an annual pilgrimage.

Don’t forget Thursday night Psycho Swim with music outside at the Daylight Beach Club. True, it is 100 degrees or so in the daytime but when the sun goes down so does the temperature and it is very comfortable. Plus it is a beach and you can get in the water. The bands for this year’s Psycho Swim include Old Man Gloom, Bongzilla, and many others.

There were still some tickets available at this writing. Hit the link below to see what’s up.
