Metal 2 the Masses 2021

Postby Haldamir319 » Tue Mar 30, 2021 12:15 pm

A bunch of regions are doing single event / all dayers for M2TM 2021 this year. I'll copy in the overall list later, but its all happening in the first few weekends in July pretty much.

We're handling the Sheffield one, as per usual.

Here's a link to our event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1204323743357193

Here's the 10 bands playing ours - all were Semi-Finalists in the abandoned 2020 initirative:

Against the Grain - hard rock
Coyote Mad Seeds - hard rock / heavy metal
IL - prog / psych / groove / extreme
Into the Red - prog alt rock / pop punk
Kallos - instrumental prog metal
Killers & Kings - hard rock / heavy metal
Shadow Smile - alternative / contemporary metal
Shonin - rap metal
Sidewinder - crossover thrash
Terminal Sun - death metal

I believe it's the usual amount, so a minimum of 1 per region but some regions might have a 2nd taken for the Jager stage etc.

Weird, considering there's a whole other day to fill and little chance of any Europeans getting a slot.

The only Euro M2TMs are Ireland, Poland and Norway though I think? That's only 3 extra spots to cover.

True, then with the other day that's an extra 15/16 bands all together. If we're going off of the last festival of course, which they might not be. Maybe they'll give all the bands longer sets to stretch them out or something.

Oh that's fair comment. I don't know what they've planned for those. Personally, I'd look back over the history of BOA and book some of the more popular bands to have come through the M2TM system.
