News: Midwest Massacre Returns to Knuckle Down Saloon


For the second year in a row Midwest Mix-Up is teaming up with Knuckle Down Saloon for one of the heaviest metal festivals of the year. Building off last year’s success, this year’s Midwest Massacre spans two days instead of just one and features over 25 independent heavy metal and hardcore bands tearing up two stages.

Think this is just another metal festival held at a dingy club? Guess again! The Knuckle Down Saloon will be hosting this event and serving up hot food and cold drinks from the moment the doors open.

Last year the MATG crew covered the show, had some great food, and got knee deep in the pit snapping photos of a slew of great bands and this year will be no different.

This is set to be one heavy show and the crowd is going to be wild. Don’t miss out on your chance to throw down with some of the best in the Midwest underground. Get your tickets today right HERE for $15 in advance, or $20 day of show. Either way, that’s a hell of a value with the amount of face melting metal you’re about experience. We’ll see you at the Massacre!
