SO WHAT?! MUSIC FESTIVAL
ANNOUNCES 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY DATES
Introducing the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest presented by Unibroue
Sleep and Agoraphobic Nosebleed Headline Two-Day Celebration of Extreme Music and Craft Beer
For more information: www.sowhatmusicfestival.com
Third String Festivals is proud to announce the 10th Anniversary celebration of So What?! Music Festival taking place March 24th-26th. To celebrate this occasion in the biggest way possible, they will be taking over multiple venues in Deep Ellum on Friday, March 24th to kick off the weekend and then bring some of the best names in the scene to AirHogs Stadium (formerly known as QuikTrip Park) on Saturday and Sunday (March 25th and 26th). The festival will feature lots of 10 year album celebrations as well as the best current popular bands in the scene! The Deep Ellum shows will feature intimate "secret shows" from some of the festivals headliners as well plenty of other bands! Festival Owner/Founder Mike Ziemer had this to say about the festival:
"When I started my business it was just something I was doing for fun, but creating So What?! Music Festival is what made it a career. This festival is a year round commitment to our fans to produce an event that's worth them coming from all 50 states and over a dozen countries. This festival is their festival and over the last 10 years, the bands that have worked their way from a small local band to a main stage headliner is incredible. This 10 year is our chance to bring some bands back to life, celebrate some 10 year albums, and continue showcasing bands that have been with us since day one of their careers. To be able to bring this event to Deep Ellum and the Ballpark is the the best way we could possibly celebrate everything that this festival was, is, and will be."
Different from other music festivals, So What?! is a "festival made by fans for fans," stated founder and promoter Mike Ziemer. Ziemer and his company Third String Festivals had a vision to create an alternative music festival where fans could get away from the massively growing South by Southwest. The festival was designed for a more intimate ambiance for fans at a reasonable price. Located just a few hours shy of Austin, So What?! Music Festival delivers an array of musical acts including rock, metal, folk, dance, pop, pop-punk, and this year an all new acoustic stage (artists yet to be announced). Previous artists include Asking Alexandria, The Early November, Motion City Soundtrack, G-Eazy, Pierce The Veil, Cartel, Sleeping With Sirens, A Day To Remember, Taking Back Sunday, and more. As one of the fastest growing festivals in the state of Texas, there is no stopping So What?! Music Festival. Multiple announcements with all new artists will be revealed soon, stay tuned!
So What?! Music Festival will take place in Grand Prairie, Texas on March 24th and 26th (Deep Ellum on March 25th). A limited amount of early bird tickets will be on sale starting Saturday at 10am CST until Sunday at 11:59pm CST at SoWhatMusicFestival.com
Be on the look out for artist announcements coming soon!

On Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, 2017, America's only monthly extreme music magazine is bringing the loudest, heaviest two-day craft beer festival in the world to The Fillmore Philadelphia. The first annual Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, presented by Unibroue, is two days of brutal bands and the most metal craft beer in North America.
For nearly a decade, Decibel has fostered the brotherhood between the craft beer and metal worlds with its monthly "Brewtal Truth" column written by award-winning beer writer Adem Tepedelen. Now, the two worlds will be united in one glorious weekend of extreme sound and suds in Philadelphia.
Headliners include Grindcore brutalizers Agoraphobic Nosebleed (Saturday) and reunited stoner doom legends Sleep (Sunday) with Municipal Waste, Pig Destroyer, Immolation, Panopticon, Withered, Khemmis, Krieg, Crypt Sermon, Falls of Rauros and Cemetery Piss rounding out a devastating weekend of intoxicated metal mayhem. That lineup alone is worth shelling out for, right?
But wait, there's more.
Though there are 3,000-plus craft breweries in the U.S., Decibel has selected only the most metal breweries from across the country to be part of the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, including: TRVE (CO), Hammerheart (MN), Holy Mountain (WA), Burial (NC), Atlas (DC), Hoof Hearted (OH), Neshaminy Creek (PA), Burnt Hickory (GA), Hydra (SD), Tired Hands (PA), Champion (VA), Three Weavers (CA), 18th Street (IN) and Cigar City (FL). Not only will their beer be poured at the fest, many of the metal-loving brewers that own and work at these breweries will be there to enjoy the music, pour samples, and talk to festival goers about their exciting brews.
One of the most exciting and unique aspects of this event is the support Decibel has received from the craft beer pioneers at Unibroue. The Quebec-based brewery 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. Unibroue Brewmaster Jerry Vietz will be making a special appearance at the event to pour A Tout Le Monde and discuss the featured beer with attendees and press.
Since this is a metal and beer fest, there will be two ticketing options for each day. The "Metal and Beer" ticket-limited to 500 per day-gives you access to pours from all of the breweries, as well as admittance to that day's show. The "Just Metal" option just gives you access to the show. Those that buy the "Just Metal" tickets can still purchase beers from selected participating breweries on-tap at the venue.
You've been to craft beer festivals with shitty music and metal festivals with shitty beer, but finally you can get all the good stuff in one glorious, liver- and eardrum-punishing weekend. Don't blow it. Go to decibelmagazine.com for tickets and info.
