This is a genuine out-in-the-woods-on-a-fucking-mountain Metal experience… Feral, Natural, Primal, Carnal! We will forge this experience with music, food, drink, and the natural terrain which surrounds us! All of you die-hards who have conjured dreams of the primitive metal experience in the woods while surrounded by the elements of nature, here it is! Prepare your souls and the vessels they ride in! Wimps and primadonnas need not apply, as this is for the true warriors and agents of chaos who have envisioned such an experience!
Festum Carnis is in its third year, and we intend to rage even harder, meaner, steadier and nastier than the hellstravaganza that was last year! Check out the Lineup page to see them all. Get ready to rage forth once again maniacs, for this is your independent outdoor metal festival!
Festum Carnis is a 3 day weekend camping festival celebrating the joyous thing that is Metal in the forest. Do you like Metal? Do you like the forest? Then you will love Festum Carnis. There will be THREE DAYS OF METAL playing over the course of the weekend, enough to satiate even a Nordic Lord’s most brutal listening desires. Since this is a 3 day festival, we will be camping there overnight for a few days. So, bring the shit you will need to sleep and survive in the forest.
This year Festum Carnis will be on July 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2015. The main gate opens at 8:00 AM on Friday July 3rd, and the first band goes on at 2:00 PM. There will be bands playing all throughout the day and evening until 2:00 AM at night for all three days… Everyone must be packed up, cleaned their campsites and out by 2 PM on July 6th.
It’s a new location! Blue Mountain Event Center at 7250 Mitchell Mill Rd, Wilseyville, California 95257. There is plenty of room for camping and the camping spots are all first-come first-serve, so make sure you get to the festival early enough to snag a good spot. There is limited RV space, please contact us to make arrangements. We will have porta-potties available, but there will not be any flush toilets or showers available. We will have bottled water for sale but you will need to bring any other water you may need. Think camping.
Festum Carnis is a fundraiser for The Handy House of Art and Science. The Handy House is trying to raise money to set up a co-op art, science, and music space in Contra Costa county (CA) where people can have a safe haven to work on their art projects, perform science experiments, practice their music, and have a place to be creative outside of the home. We realize that not everyone has a lot of room to art out at their home, either because they live in a small apartment, with a bunch of roommates, still with their parents, or in an environment not conducive to creativity. That’s why we are setting up The Handy House of Art and Science… to give people a chance to be with like-minded individuals and to find their creative outlet. We do a lot of random events in Contra Costa and Solano county, check The Handy House of Art and Science out on Facebook to see what we are currently up to!
Rage on, Maniaks! \m/
