Gilead Media Fest II Initial Lineup Announced

The initial lineup for Gilead Media Fest II has been released and the usual suspects manage to show up along with a few new faces. The first Gilead Media Fest that took place last year was a runaway success and one of the best independant metal fests to date, so expect good things to come from it's sequel. Hell it was meant as a one-off event but the demand was too high, so get ready for July 18th-20th of next year - here's the press release and 13 of the 25 or so bands slated to play:

"The first Gilead Fest took place on April 28th & 29th, 2012 in my home town of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This was an unbelievable weekend, filled with an incredible lineup of black metal, doom, punk, and drone bands from across the United States. Words will fail to explain exactly how meaningful this weekend was. A positive environment, many of my friends, many supporters of the label, and many of my favorite bands, all in one place for two straight days. Celebrating our collective love for music.

There were never plans to make this an annual event, or to even hold a second festival at all, truthfully. But time passes, and life oftentimes brings us back to places we never thought we’d see again, save for dreams and memories. So, that being said, the Gilead Media Music Festival will return July 18th-20th, 2014. Once again in lovely Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Exact venue is still yet to be determined, but I’ve had some positive conversations with a prospective venue that will understand the crowd, atmosphere, and music. More details on that soon. Here are the bands confirmed for 2014 so far..."
