Metal is definitely not dead in NEPA

Just when you thought the local NEPA music scene was dead, it ain’t!

MMFBackground:
Members of the NEPA Metal Scene decided back in 2013 to prove the point that metal is definitely not dead in NEPA. NEPA Metal Meltdown, an all metal-fest showcasing the best local & regional heavy metal, is coming to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area of PA for the 3rd year in a row.  Prior years were 2 days, but due to bands ever changing schedule, this year they are going to showcase the bands all in one day.  Doors Open at 5:00 pm at Diane’s Deli 206 S Main St. Pittston, Pennsylvania 18640.

Every year the event outdoes the year before keeping the fans in mind by creating a showcase right here in our area, that is not only affordable but also to create a showcase that benefits the fans to discover new talent, bands to connect and network and to put music on the map for our area.

Metal Meltdown

According to NepaMetal DOT ComThe goal: to bring local and regional metal acts to one venue for a weekend of uncompromising music. The idea was to let the bands run the fest, eliminating the middle man, and the all too common pay to play tactics.

 

 

History of the event and performers past to present:

Every year the event has some repeat as well as new bands on the bill so that they can keep it diverse as possible and have some style of metal in it for everyone.  $10 for the day and the amount that the festival has charged in the past because the price per band can’t even get a beer or a pack of cigarettes with that so it’s definitely worth it.  Below you will find a listing of the past and present performers of the event.
