If you thought the group teasing earlier this year was good, wait until you see what all Furnace Fest has in store for you this year. A finalized lineup (minus one headliner yet to be named) has been revealed, with Mastodon and Thrice among the headliners for the three-day music festival.
The festival will take place at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama, the weekend of September 23-25. On opening night, fans will headline Thrice as they revisit their 2002 album The Illusion of Safety in its entirety. Other artists featured on Friday (September 23) include New Found Glory, Alexisonfire, Midtown, Shadows Fall, Quicksand and more.
On Saturday (September 24), the yet-to-be-named headliner plays alongside the Manchester Orchestra, The Ghost Inside, Elliott (who reunited for this performance), Blindside playing the Silence album, Poison the Well and more.
And Sunday (September 25) ends with the mighty Mastodon playing after Descendents, The Story So Far, In Flames, American Nightmare, Avail, Four Year Strong playing enemy of the world and more.
“Furnace Fest took a 17-year nap before a group of us reunited in hopes of a one-time reunion,” the Furnace Fest team shares. “After countless hardships (like a global pandemic and a three-time postponement), the ‘one-time resurrection’ went so well that we knew it was right to share the experience again. We are beyond excited to share this lineup and are thrilled to host 90 total bands across four stages in one, if not the, most unique venue on the planet. For us, Furnace Fest is not a festival. It’s a most epic family reunion.
