Bringing together the best bands in the world and socially conscious music fans, Impact Music Festival’s debut edition was a rousing success. The successor to the Rise Above Festival by the same organizers- Music Matters, had incredible bands, thousands of rock and metal fans, the “arrest” of Marilyn Manson (not really), and the fewest complaints of a music festival in recent memory in Maine. Check out our recap with EXCLUSIVE photos by Evil Robb Photography.
Friday featured the Slayer Farewell tour and thus saw bands like Slayer, Lamb Of God, Anthrax
Testament, and Napalm Death tear up the stage and enthralled the fans.
After Avenged Sevenfold and Prophets of Rage had to cancel (their entire tour, no fault of the fest), Saturday still had top-tier talents like Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Black Label Society, Gojira, Trivium, Hollywood Undead, Corrosion Of Conformity, Powerman 5000, and more.
Sunday had Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Underoath, Of Mice & Men, P.O.D.
Baroness, We Came As Romans (RIP), Pallbearer, Miss May Ito close it all out.
