Us Halloween lovers always look for events to start celebrating Halloween before October even arrives… and by before October arrives, we mean November 1st. While it can be difficult to satiate that Halloween urge during the months of November through August, fall events start to creep up come September. If you’re a metal fan, we’re sure you’ve noticed that metal bands with that dark, Halloween-esque twist to them come out of the woodwork and go on tour in the September and October months. We’re talking about bands and singers like Ghost, Rob Zombie, and Alice Cooper.
Well, for those Halloween and metal lovers out there, there’s a special treat coming your way this September 2016: the Monster Energy Rock Allegiance Festival. For two full days, from Saturday, September 17th through Sunday, September 18th, some totally Halloween-esque metal bands will be coming your way in Chester, PA. The lineup includes bands: Alice in Chains, Baroness, Ghost, Motionless in White, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Anthrax, Slayer, Killswitch Engage, and many more. You can check out the Rock Allegiance website for the full lineup.
The festival will also include gourmet food and craft beer, so it will be a fun night to begin bringing in the fall months.
