75 New Bands Added To NEMHF; Bands Now Limited To One Song Sets

The New England Metal & Hardcore Festival added seventy five new acts, a convergence of approximately 25 ongoing tours, including Paganfest, Metal Alliance and now the Mayhem Festival lineup featuring Rob Zombie, Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Machine Head, Children of Bodom, Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy and many more. Even though the Mayhem Festival is scheduled for the end of June, promoters for the festival though the opportunity to do something even more special would prove hard to pass up. The Festival starts with the kick off show on Thursday, April 18 and then the main festival which runs Friday the 19th through Sunday the 21st.

NEMHF Promoter Scott Lee stated: "We decided to go all out for the 15th Anniversary of NEMHF this year taking advantage of all the great tours happening. The addition of over 70 additional bands does pose a logistical problem, especially with equipment changes and only two stages. Therefore, we have asked all bands to limit the set list to one song a piece, except top tier headliners who will play two songs. This will allow us to be able to safely change equipment with no real delays and the fans can get everything they want. There is a good chance we could add more before the festival is over so stay tuned."

Some of the bands will be holding contests for fans to pick the one or two songs played. The lineup consists of the following (not all bands named or included):
