2017 is going to be a busy year for Danzig. The legendary front man has already confirmed that his new album, ‘Black Laden Crown’, will be coming in May (details), plus he announced the return of his “Blackest of the Black Festival” as well. Last night Danzig appeared on Full Metal Jackie’s KLOS radio program to talk about the upcoming festival, and he revealed a ton of bands who are already booked for the huge event. Danzig, Ministry, Suicidal Tendencies, Atreyu, Corrosion of Conformity, Vamps, Marduk, Suicide Silence, Venom, DevliDriver, Fear Factory, Belphegor, Discharge, Combichrist, Butcher Babies, 3Teeth, Ghoul and Ritual have all been confirmed to perform at this year’s festival, which will be taking place from May 26th-27th at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, California.
Here’s what he added on this year’s festival: “This year we’re finally upping the ante. We’re doing it with a couple of partners now that have come in and we’re doing it the way I’ve always wanted to do it, which we’ve been building to, so now it’s a two-day fest. It’s not just bands. You’re gonna get a ton of other stuff. There’s going to be rides. I got to pick the rides. We’re gonna have Hell Hole, we’re gonna have Spider. There’s gonna be Lucha Underground wrestling there with all the darker wrestlers. There’s gonna be camping overnight if you stay from Friday to Saturday. The plan is to have a haunted drive-in with tombstones. You can just put your sleeping bag there and watch schlocky horror movies until you pass out. It’s gonna be a whole thing.”
