A few hours ago I got a press release announcing the Devil Side Festival at Landschaftspark in Duisburg-Nord, Germany. The one-day festival is June 28 and will feature these bands:
All Shall Perish
Five Finger Death Punch
Peter Pan Speedrock
Personally, I think this is a great one day Metal lineup. The more I think about it - perhaps one day fests are the way to go. On the Glammer side of things, both the M3 Fest (Baltimore, Maryland) and the Desert Invasion (Phoenix, Arizona) have great lineups. M3 features:
The Desert Invasion features:
Dee Snider (host)
The way the economy and tour routings are going this year, it seems that more and more promoters are cashing in on one and two day events that give fans the festival experience without the expense of a week-long vacation.
At any rate, I won't be at any of these three events because I went ahead and signed up for more traditional, multi-day fests. Still, if I had an infinite amount of cash, you'd better believe I'd be at M3 - no question.
