Blue Ridge Rock Festival continues to stack the already surreal lineup with even more reunions, special sets, and the announcement of their third headliner: Evanescence, who will close out one of the main stages. This year marks the 20th anniversary of their debut album, “Fallen,” which became 1 of just 27 albums led by a female artist to ever be certified Diamond. Total sales for that album alone exceed 17 million. Evanescence will perform alongside previously announced headliners Pantera and Shinedown, with another five yet to be released.
In addition to hitting the stage with Pantera, the Festival welcomes Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society. Zakk will be on double duty, also serving as the axe-man for Pantera’s set. Recent announcements also include festival alum Asking Alexandria, the comedic metal outfit Psychostick, a long-awaited reunion of Brooklyn-based Biohazard, and unsigned talent search winner Eternal Frequency from Central PA. Delivering another unique opportunity to the fans, Max and Iggor Cavalera will bring Cavalera Conspiracy to the stage performing a special Sepultura set.
As of this evening, artist announcement #90 dropped: Ten56 from Paris, France, whose debut album Downer Pt 2 is out NOW.
