So yesterday we ran the leaked lineup and location information for the third annual Scion Rock Fest, taking place in Pomona CA. Today they officially announced the free festival, and it’s… pretty much everything we said yesterday. One thing that didn’t click with us yesterday is that Primate will be one of the bands playing. That’s Bill Kelliher’s side project. It’s also pretty cool to see that black metal/punk buzz band Kvelertak will be headed over from Norway to play the show as well. In all, it’s a well-rounded bill that’s death and thrash metal top-heavy, especially with Morbid Angel playing their first show in years.
As always, tickets for the fest will be free, and you’ll be able to RSVP for them tomorrow by going here. There are still more bands to be added, and we’ll let you know who as we find out.
