Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer + Rob Zombie Lead Inaugural Impact Music Festival
Some of rock and metal's biggest names will headline the inaugural Impact Music Festival Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine.
The event, backed by Waterfront Concerts and Music Matters, will feature Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer and Rob Zombie heading up the three-day music weekend July 27-29. Like Rise Above, the Impact Music Festival is designed to shine a spotlight on the importance of suicide prevention and mental health awareness.
Slayer will headline the opening day (Friday, July 27), with their tour partners Lamb of God, Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death rounding out the bill. Slayer just announced a second North American leg of their farewell tour, with Napalm Death taking over as the opener in place of Behemoth.
The second day (Saturday, July 28) offers a fuller bill, with Avenged Sevenfold leading a lineup that includes Prophets of Rage, Three Days Grace, Black Label Society, Gojira, Trivium, Hollywood Undead, Corrosion of Conformity, Powerman 5000, Emmure and Bad Omens.
Rob Zombie gets to close out the weekend on Sunday (July 29), joined by Marilyn Manson, Underoath, Of Mice & Men, P.O.D., Baroness, Attila, We Came as Romans, Pallbearer and Miss May I.
A percentage of the proceeds raised by the festival will go to Music Matters, a Maine-based, nonprofit organization focused on mental health awareness, education and suicide prevention. For ticketing and camping options, head here.
