The inaugural edition of the rock and metal-themed fest drew about 25,000 fans to Great Stage Park in rural Manchester, Tennessee, the location of the long-running Bonnaroo festival, with a lineup that also included Deftones, Seether, Ghost, Slayer, Anthrax, ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, and the final festival performance of the legendary metal band Slayer.
Organizers did not provide a reason for the festival’s cancellation but it takes place on the same weekend as Danny Wimmer Presents’s metal-filled Aftershock Festival, which takes place on the same weekend in Sacramento.
