Finally, Sunday, Sept. 25, will feature a headlining set from Mastodon, as well as music from Descendents, The Story So Far, In Flames, American Nightmare, Avail, Four Year Strong playing Enemy of the World and others.

“Furnace Fest took a 17-year nap before a group of us banded together with hopes of a one-time reunion,” festival organizers said in a statement. “After countless difficulties (like a global pandemic and rescheduling three times) the ‘one-time resurrection’ went so well that we knew it was only fair to share the experience again. We’re beyond excited to share this lineup and are thrilled to welcome 90 total bands on four stages in one, if not the, most unique venues on the planet. To us, Furnace Fest isn’t a festival. This is a family reunion of the most epic kind.”
