Let’s break down this festival lineup. Then scroll to the bottom to enter for a chance to win two-day VIP passes to HeartSupport Fest 23!
SATURDAY – GET TICKETS HERE!
Australia’s premiere metal act, these guys have been killing it since my high school days, and will definitely bring the heavy! This is how you headline a festival!
Hometown-ish heroes that helped soundtrack my high school and beyond. Underoath is the best way to lose your voice screaming along with!
Dance Gavin Dance
Featuring one of the best interplays of both clean and dirty vocals, and a history of amazing live shows, DGD is one of the hottest parts of this ticket!
August Burns Red
Breakdown Central! August Burns Red will have the crowd smashing it up in circle pits through their whole set!
Memphis May Fire
Coming up around the same time as many of these bands, Memphis May Fire always was able to maintain a more party/dance vibe, really setting them apart, and making their live sets a blast to dance to!
The Devil Wears Prada
I’ve probably seen these guys about 7 different times, all on some of the best tours I’ve ever been too! Always a great time, with real in-in-your face energy and some of the hardest drums in the genre.
True hardcore, Comeback Kid will blast you in the face with their chugging chords, cutting lyrics, and intense breakdowns. Make sure you save some energy for this pit! It’ll be absolutely insane!
The Word Alive
The Word Alive began as a metalcore from Phoenix. Now this band, void of genre distinctions, urges alternative music forward through the seamless integration of cinematic electronic fits and undeniable melodies into hard-hitting heaviness.
Bleed From Within
A sound reminding me of the early days of Parkway Drive or Haste the Day, these Scotch brutalists are ready to make sure everyone in the crowd is feeling just like their namesake. (just kidding, please take care of yourselves out there!!!)
He Is Legend
With a sound that’s reminiscent of Mastodon, this North Carolina alt-metal is going to be a contestant for the sleeper show of the day!
Headbanging city! Crunchy as hell, constantly going going going, Currents is probably the closest you’ll see to proggy metal all day, and I’m sure they’ll have everyone there amped up!
Newcomers to the scene, Bloodlines will be opening the day, but you’d better make sure you don’t miss out! Reminding me of Job For A Cowboy, these guys should be worth starting the day early!
SUNDAY – GET TICKETS HERE!
Chicago punk kings that have survived the tests of time and come out on top. Rise Against has been responsible for some of the best concerts of my life, and have been majorly influential in the music I grew up with.
The Ghost Inside
On an early morning in November 2015, The Ghost Inside’s tour bus collided with a tractor trailer. The accident will always be a defining moment for The Ghost Inside, but never what defines them. It’s good to see them back on stage. Go support these metal brothers!
Quickly became a favorite around the SIGT crew, boasting a sound that is unlike anything else out there. Make sure you get a great spot for lead singer Courtney LaPlante!
Canadian post-hardcore at its finest! Silverstein is one of the longest running bands on the bill, and for good reason! Their melodic blend of hardcore and Emo has led to some of the best songs of my high school years.
Probably the band I’ve seen more than any other on the bill. Senses Fail has been able to transcend their original screamo roots and have blazed a trail all their own. Make sure to catch lead singer Buddy Nielsen’s electric live performance!
One of Ohio’s finest! Hawthorne Heights are legends in the post-hardcore scene. With fan favorite songs like “Ohio Is For Lovers” and “Saying Sorry,” you’ll be singing along to their whole set, I’m sure!
Four Year Strong
Kings of power punk, Four Year Strong are one of the most fun times you can have. Stompingly good fun, with the catchiness that you’d hope for from a pop punk band, but with the ability to get the crowd moshing hard.
Do not miss this band. They are one of the most charismatic bands on this showcase, ‘68 blast all the energy of a Chariot show through just a guitar and a drum kit and absolutely slay!
Heavy on the hardcore, and even heavier with the metal, Harm’s Way will be one hell of a way to start the day. Better get the BenGay ready for your neck! It’s going to hurt from all the headbanging you’ll be doing to this band.
Drawing from the same well as night 1 act Underoath, Silent Planet has that mix of complex guitarwork mixed with a dueling clean and unclean vocalist, with just a touch of electronica! Make sure you get yourself ready for an amazing start of the day!
Florida’s own alt/nu-metal brothers are taking a darker approach to pushing the genres forward. They’re “unsigned and unstoppable.” Catch them to start the day off right!
