Lamb of God, Anthrax and others set to appear
Before OZZfest. Before Mayhem Festival. Before all of them — there was Milwaukee Metal Fest.
The iconic, midwestern, multi-day event was the stuff of legends and is returning to prominence in 2023. Hatebreed frontman and podcaster Jamey Jasta purchased the rights last year and announces the lineup for Milwaukee Metal Fest 2023.
The rebooted event will take place on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28th at The Rave/Eagles club. The lineup includes Lamb of God, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, and many more.
“The infamous Milwaukee Metal Fest created so many memories, hosted legendary bands, and gave up and comers something to aspire to. Memorial Day Weekend 2023 (May 26, 27, and 28) — it returns with a stacked line up and a new lease on life,” says Jasta. “I cannot wait to see all the bands and hang with everyone in Milwaukee. I’m so grateful for [booking agent] Tim Borror and the Sound Talent Crew; and Leslie, Joe, and everyone at The Rave/Eagles for helping us put this event together. Milwaukee Metal Fest is back! See you in Wisconsin this May!”
