Inaugural Northern Invasion to feature handful of hard rock and metal bands in Somerset, Wisconsin
Wisconsin has a new hard rock and metal music festival this spring. Northern Invasion has been announced for May 9 at Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, Wis. The inaugural event will mix rock and camping and feature performances from the likes of Five Finger Death Punch, Thousand Foot Krutch, Slipknot, Volbeat, Three Days Grace, Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, In This Moment, Anthrax, Live, Motionless in White, Young Guns, We Are Harlot, Starset and Crobot.
“We’ll be fresh out of the studio just in time to participate in the first annual Northern Invasion,” Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody said in a statement. “It’s a huge festival and it will be amazing to get back on stage with peers in Slipknot, Volbeat, Halestorm and so many other…bands.”
Northern Invasion boasts a full day of music on May 9, along with a “Friday Night Bonfire Party” the night before, the latter for those who purchase a camping or hotel package. Camping for the event will be open from 12 p.m. CST Friday to 12 p.m. CST Sunday. Camping upgrades, camping/hotel packages and VIP pavilion packages will also be available.
