Among the dozens of bands on the bill, it will mark the reunions of both Flyleaf with lacey Sturm and Coal Chamber. The event will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2023 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Death Grips have released a 14 track “instrumental full length soundtrack” titled Fashion Week, available to stream on YouTube and download here.
A set of instrumentals purporting to be by Death Grips were shared on Reddit four months ago, but were soon dismissed as fake.
The titles of the 14 Fashion Week tracks each consist of an individual letter. In sequence, they spell out the phrase “Jenny Death When”. ‘Jenny Death’ is believed to be the second part of forthcoming double album The Powers That B which, it was revealed in October 2014, is now complete.
The rap group announced the news on Facebook, writing:
“Our new double album “The Powers That B” is now complete. This is the album cover. Digital and physical release dates coming soon.” It has since been reported that the album will be released in February in certain territories.
‘Niggas On The Moon’, the first part of the double LP, was released digitally last year. A track from ‘Jenny Death’, ‘Inanimate Sensation’, was unveiled in December – click below to listen.
