Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch to headline Bangor Impact Fest
Godsmack will return to Bangor for a fifth time this summer, Waterfront Concerts announced Friday. The Boston-based metal band will be one of the headliners at this year’s Impact Festival, a two-day metal and hard rock festival set for Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28.
The release of the Impact Festival lineup marks the the fifth announcement for the 2019 season at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor.
The festival will feature headliner Five Finger Death Punch on Saturday and Godsmack on Sunday. Tickets for the event go on sale via Ticketmaster on Friday, July 25, and include multiple tiers of ticket packages, including camping or hotel inclusive deals.
In addition to Five Finger Death Punch on Saturday, the lineup for that day includes In This Moment, Skillet, Clutch, Between The Buried And Me, Atreyu, Yob, Memphis May Fire, Norma Jean, Dirty Honey and Amigo The Devil.
Sunday’s lineup, in addition to Godsmack, includes Evanescence, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Buckcherry, Beartooth, Andrew W.K., Fever 333, Crown Lands, Joyus Wolf, Dube and Mammothor.
The festival will mark the second time Five Finger Death Punch plays in Bangor. For Godsmack, the performance will come more than a year after the release of its newest album, “When Legends Rise,” which came out in April 2018.
The Impact Music Festival in 2018 replaced the Rise Above Fest, which for four years, in collaboration with Shaun Morgan from the band Seether, brought metal bands to Bangor and benefited the organization Suicide Awareness Voices of Education. The Impact Fest will benefit Music Matters, a Maine-based nonprofit organization focused on mental health awareness, education and suicide prevention. Last year, Music Matters distributed proceeds to groups including Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, the Health Equity Alliance, Acadia Hospital and the Maine Military and Community Network.
