All current pass holders will receive admission to the newly added Thursday night kickoff celebration for free.
Theatrical Rock troupe Puscifer never does anything small and never has. Everything they do feels like an event level thing in an “it’s all happening” way. In the early days of the band, it was singles and EP’s before their debut album. Then it was a Paul Frank clothing drop or a few shows. Now, even in these trying times choking the music industry, the band finds creative ways to top themselves. They just released their new album, Existential Reckoning (read our review here) and for Halloween, they shared a visually striking, possibly insane, and high-quality multi-media livestream performance, Existential Reckoning – Live at The Arcosanti in the Arizona desert.
Staind returned in 2019 after a five-year hiatus. Following acclaimed performances at Louder Than Life Festival, Aftershock Festival and two sold-out hometown shows, and 2020 is heating up for the band too with more tour dates and festivals.
