MACHINE HEAD, RAVEN, WARBRINGER, Others Added To MILWAUKEE METAL FEST 2023February 14, 2023
MACHINE HEAD, WARBRINGER and RAVEN are among the artists who have been added to the rebooted Milwaukee Metal Fest, set to take place on Memorial Day Weekend — May 26-28 — at The Rave/Eagles club.
The iconic multi-day event has been defunct since the mid-2000s, but is returning this year after HATEBREED's Jamey Jasta purchased the rights to the festival in 2022.
"The infamous Milwaukee Metal Fest created so many memories, hosted legendary bands, and gave up and comers something to aspire to. Memorial Day Weekend 2023 (May 26, 27, and 28) — it returns with a stacked line up and a new lease on life," says Jasta. "I cannot wait to see all the bands and hang with everyone in Milwaukee. I'm so grateful for [booking agent] Tim Borror and the Sound Talent Crew; and Leslie, Joe, and everyone at The Rave/Eagles for helping us put this event together. Milwaukee Metal Fest is back! See you in Wisconsin this May!"
Says Borror: "Milwaukee Metal Fest was such a huge part of the metal culture back in the day, and it really helped a lot of bands. It was always at The Rave and the combo is iconic. Working with Jamey, the great people at The Rave, and all the bands to bring it back in 2023 is fucking incredible. This is going to be a great event, don't miss it!"
