After a successful return of Milwaukee Metal Festival in 2023, the multi-day event has revealed the first wave of bands for its 2024 edition.

“We extremely excited to have Milwaukee Metal Fest not only coming back for another insane year but this time around we have added power metal, more black metal, more doom and some other surprise elements that were not logistically possible last year,” Festival co-organizer and Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta said. “This is just the first of many announcements on the horizon and I can’t wait to see everyone in Milwaukee next May!”

Sound Talent Group’s Tim Borror said: “Milwaukee Metal Fest 2023 was so awesome but more importantly, it’s a stake in the ground of how important and vital metal music is. Especially extreme metal! 2024 is going to be even more incredible. Come hang with us in May”
