MERIDIAN, MS (April 21, 2017) – Calling all craft beer and metal music aficionados to get their fill at the first annual Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, sponsored by Peavey Electronics® and presented by Unibroue brewery at the Fillmore in Philadelphia, Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, 2017. Contributing to the festival’s intensity will be Peavey 6505® and PVH™ guitar and bass cabinets. The Peavey 6505 series has set the standard for the sonic brutality and aggression that define modern metal.
Hosted appropriately in the City of Brotherly Love, this inaugural festival celebrates the brotherhood of craft beer and metal music. It’s a concept that Decibel magazine has fostered in its monthly “Brewtal Truth” column, and now it’s coming to life in a one-of-a-kind event that will draw some of the biggest metal bands and more than a dozen metal craft brewers from across North America.
The brewers have been vetted for their love of metal and will engage festival goers while enjoying the show lineup themselves. In fact, Quebec-based brewery and sponsor Unibroue partnered with Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine to brew the recently released Belgian-style dry hopped saison A Tout Le Monde, based on the thrash legends’ iconic song of the same name. When both the music and beer have this much depth, the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest is destined to be a powerful sensory experience.
Headlining the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest will be Grindcore brutalizers Agoraphic Nosebleed (Saturday) and reunited stoner doom legends Sleep (Sunday). Two ticketing options are available: the “Metal and Beer” ticket, limited to 500 per day, gives holders access to pours from all of the breweries and that day’s show, while the “Just Metal” ticket provides access to the show only. “Just Metal” ticket holders can still purchase beers from selected breweries on-tap at the venue.
