Welcome to The Hard-Lines Extreme Metal Civilization 2009-Now


The first annual Florida Metal Fest will be held on January 30, 2016 at The Cuban Club in historic Ybor City, Florida.  Located only 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport The Cuban Club is surrounded by dozen of Bars and Restaurants, easy parking and in walking distance or short cab rides of dozens of hotels at a variety of prices.

My brother and I have been so fortunate and thankful to be part of some the best and biggest music festivals in the world. The amount of people, bands and energy these festivals can bring is just awesome. From the first time we played one it has always been a dream of ours to put together a music festival that is not only fun for the fans, bands and crews, but one that also brings a closeness to all involved. After years and years of talking about it, we finally decided the time is now. We want to put together a first class festival. From the venue to the PA, from the lights to the lineup we are trying our best to make this as memorable event as possible. No festival, anywhere in the world, even with the best possible lineup, would work if the area does not support it. I think that Tampa, and it surrounding cities, is a great music area and one that is ready to make this event come to life.

Since this is a music festival not just about Florida bands but for Florida Metal Fans, we have also invited some of our favorite bands that we are very proud to bring to the Bay Area and mix it up a bit.

MadBall is one of the Sickest NY Hardcore bands out there, longtime friends of Obituary and always bring an explosive live performance. We are so excited that they are ready to head south to Tampa to Set It Off!! 

And of course, no Redneck Stomp would be complete without a little Southern Metal, so we are honored to welcome the legendary COC featuring the King of the Rotten himself, Pepper Keenan!
