Prepare for one of the noisest, heaviest, most extreme craft beer festivals ever to step foot at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California, as Decibel Metal & Beerfest Los Angeles has released part of the official lineup for the 2019 2nd annual festival, set to take place from December 13-14. The list contains several heavy metals bands eager to put on a show for fans later this year.
The press release announced that another headliner and more major acts are to be announced in August. As for now, it is confirmed that “Spirit Adrift, Utah power metal warriors Visigoth, Arizona death dealers Gatecreeper, cinematic grind-crushers Graf Orlock, and death/doom new jacks Mortuous round out the first wave of bands on the bill.”
For a two-day-weekend special, fans will be treated to not only an endless amount of craft beer to keep the energy at an all-time high but also appearances by Swiss black metal progressives Schammasch, who will be making their U.S debut at the Metal & Beer Festival. Another well-known metal band, east coast doom metal kings Evoken will also be preparing for a first as this year will be their first time ever performing in California.
The event is sponsored by none other than legendary heavy metal label, Metal Blade Records.
“We always love working with Decibel and this fest,” says Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel. “With all the great bands and beers, it should be great fun!”
Special discounted early-bird weekend “Metal & Beer” tickets, which include samples from all breweries all weekend long, will be on sale at 10 AM PST this Friday, June 21st here.
