In years past, notable bands like GWAR and Cannibal Corpse have played the Gathering. When we talked to Attila's Chris Fronzak, he had nothing but great things to say about the fest like "oh when they throw batteries, that means they like you," and that ICP treated them like true rockstars, giving them everything on their rider.
So, who are the lucky metal bands this year? Well, of course the show will feature top notable acts like P.O.D., Dope, Mushroomhead. Look, who are we kidding? Even at their peak, these were the second-wave acts that usually opened for the big names like Korn and Limp Bizkit. There are some more modern bands on the bill too:
- American Grim
- Green Jellÿ
- Kissing Candice
- Miss May I
- September Mourning
- The Browning
- Upon a Burning Body
As always, the Gathering has produced a lengthy informercial, which is always more entertaining than the actual fest:
