RPM FEST is New England’s annual three-day outdoor heavy Rock, Punk, and Metal music festival. The heaviest party of the summer is back for its fifth year!
Each year of RPM FEST has occurred in Western Massachusetts, which has been a hotbed for spawning nationally-recognized heavy music acts like Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall. Since RPM FEST‘s 2014 start, West Mass has seen a heavy music resurgence, with its goal to keep fostering the local heavy music scene by showcasing some of the best underground bands New England has to offer.
Held again this year in Montague, Massachusetts, RPM FEST for the 2019 lineup has it all on its three stages – rock, doom, thrash, death, punk, prog, grind, power, stoner, melodic, groove – plus food, craft brews, vendors, and plenty of pre- and post-show entertainment and activities.
Riff Relevant is psyched to once again help sponsor the RPM Fest event this year. Join in this Labor Day Weekend for the best heavy music community gathering in Massachusetts with fellow fans and musicians. Look at this outrageous lineup!
