With the government-imposed lockdowns in the United States, we're going to sadly be seeing a lot of stories like this. Due to the lockdown imposed in Philadelphia, Decibel Magazine is forced to postpone their annual Metal & Beer festival, scheduled to take place on April 3rd and 4th.
Decibel made the following announcement:
“In an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Philadelphia has announced a city-wide ban on gatherings in excess of 1,000 people, which unfortunately means we have been forced to postpone Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly on April 3-4 at the Fillmore.
The lineup for the event was as follows:
Converge (performing “Jane Doe“)
Napalm Death (“performing “Harmony Corruption” and “Utopia Banished“)
Pig Destroyer (performing “Prowler In The Yard“)
