Northern Invasion–the newest addition to the World’s Loudest Month festival series–is set for Saturday, May 9 at Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, WI, just outside the Twin Cities.
The new rock and camping festival will feature an unbelievable first-year lineup headlined by global rock juggernauts Slipknot, with a roster of rock heavyweights including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Three Days Grace, Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, In This Moment, Anthrax, Live, Motionless In White, Young Guns, Thousand Foot Crutch, We Are Harlot, Starset and Crobot.
“We’ll be fresh out of the studio just in time to participate in the 1st annual Northern Invasion. 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 kick ass bands,” says Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch.
Northern Invasion offers a full day of music on Saturday, May 9, along with a Friday Night Bonfire Party for all who purchase a camping or hotel package.
