7th Annual GWAR-B-Q Announces 2016 Line-Up!


When it comes to the bloody crossover between heavy metal and horror, few can compete with the mighty, macabre GWAR. While Alice Cooper, King Diamond and many more blend terrifying theatrics with rock ‘n’ roll, GWAR prides themselves on creating chaos, insanity and a genuine mess among their petrifying performances. However, for fans of GWAR, nothing beats their annual GWAR-B-Q event, where the gruesome group assembles an all-day music festival featuring the top talents in their genre, complete with vendors, barbecue and an over-the-top headline performance from GWAR themselves. Now, the line-up for the latest GWAR-B-Q has been revealed, bringing more brutality to Richmond, VA’s historic Hadad’s Lake for the seventh year in a row!

Landing on Saturday, August 20th, Bohabs will descend upon the GWAR-B-Q once more, with metal masters Lamb of God, punk badasses Against Me!, hardcore stalwarts American Nightmare, southern metal maestros EYEHATEGOD and Fat Wreck Chords rockers Lagwagon all leading the bill. However, with more names to come, including the line-up for the returning B4BQ on Friday, August 19th, you can expect more sinister surprises from Slave Pit Inc. leading up to the 2016 GWAR-B-Q. You can keep tabs on the evolving GWAR-B-Q line-up and ticket on-sale date HERE, and stay tuned for more on GWAR-B-Q 2016 here at FANGORIA.com!
