"It's not a festival, it's a party." That's the mantra for THE REVIVAL, three days of music, camping, food and refreshments, back for its 8th Annual run, this year in the fields of Maple Park, Illinois September 6-8 (get tix). Nearly 40 bands will take the stage during the 2018 edition of The Revival, which will also include an acoustic bonfire each night, movies after dark, metal yoga, a 50' obstacle course, "dunk a promoter," mechanical bull, a roaming sideshow performer and more. Among the bands performing, DIRTY REGGAE PUNX will topline the opening night festivities, with ANOTHER LOST YEAR capping off Friday night and PRODUCT OF HATE closing out The Revival on Saturday. What's exciting about The Revival is that all tickets (available via Eventbrite) are general admission and include free food and camping! Look at it this way, everyone is a VIP!
A couple of "years" are hitting the road together for "The High Octane Tour." Charlotte, NC's ANOTHER LOST YEAR hit The Rock Father with details on April-June run of dates on which they'll join THREE YEARS HOLLOW (from my old stomping grounds in the Quad Cities). Check out the admat below for dates, and hit both bands on Facebook (names linked previously) to stay up-to-date.
