Fans of the heavy have been waiting with baited breath for the Austin Terror Fest lineup to drop, and it’s here. And it’s quite possibly one of the more impressive lineups we’ve ever seen.
Here’s the lineup so far:
*LIGHTNING BOLT · *TR/ST · *ALCEST · *PIG DESTROYER · INTEGRITY
*PANOPTICON · *BONGRIPPER · *GOATWHORE · *INDIAN
*CHURCH OF MISERY *BONGZILLA

We could hardly believe it either. And as if that wasn’t good enough news, the fest has vowed to be more inclusive this year, with plans to include more noise music and hip hop. The event has also been relocated to Barracuda and Empire Control Room & Garage, since it has expanded.
“I couldn’t be more excited to finally reveal this year’s lineup of performers; I really think this is going to be the biggest Austin Terror Fest yet, as we have been able to secure some of the best talent possible when it comes to metal and rock. Plus, we are expanding in year three to now include one of Austin’s finest music venues at Empire, which will offer access to even more fans than before,” says festival co-founder Dusty Brooks in a press release. “Feedback thus far has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to embracing this enthusiasm and support as we take Austin Terror Fest to new heights in 2019, and far beyond.”
Needless to say, don’t sleep on this one. Snag tickets here while you can!
