Worcester, Massachusetts-based concert promotions company MassConcerts will again host the annual New England Metal & Hardcore Festival in April 2014.
Slated for April 17-19, the 2014 installment of the massive New England Metal & Hardcore Festival gathering will mark its sixteenth year. Since 1999, the multiple-day festival has been attracting dozens of bands and thousands of fans to the historic Worcester Palladium, that houses two stages full of music for three full days.
While the final lineup for this year's fest is still being organized, today the first wave of bands confirmed to be taking part in the three-day massacre has come in hard.
Highlights of the three dozen New England Metal & Hardcore Festival 2014 confirmations as of this week include ALL THAT REMAINS, ICED EARTH, NILE, SLAPSHOT, the final East Coast appearance of BLEEDING THROUGH, NAILS, ALL OUT WAR, TWITCHING TONGUES, and the 2014 "Metal Alliance Tour" package still to be announced, with more than half of the lineup still to be disclosed.
