"After the bands obliterated the stage last year, we are beyond excited to be able to resuscitate Decimate Metalfest for year 2! This year not only did we want to showcase well-known favorites, and spice things up with sultry Burlesque dancers, but also bring to view many acts our city has never seen.

We are truly inspired by the growing musical minds of the next generation and of our future and are so happy to be able to include them in this year's festival! Whether you're a non-stampeder or an after-stampeder, we urge you to come out and experience and this vastly talented roster of performing acts. It's our fans that encourage events like this and that help to make them possible and keep our music community alive. Thank you for your support, and prepare for decimation!"
