Florida Metal Fest: Schedule, set times for Obituary, Deicide, Corrosion of Conformity and more
We're long overdue for a death metal festival in Tampa. Thankfully, next weekend brings the Florida Metal Fest, featuring two of the city's own death metal heroes, Obituary and Deicide, as well as out-of-towners like Corrosion of Conformity (above), Trouble, Madball and more.
Florida Metal Fest has unveiled its two-stage scheudle for Jan. 30 at the Cuban Club in Ybor City. If you're planning to head there after (or instead of) Gasparilla, take note of these set times:
11:30 p.m.: Obituary
10: Corrosion of Conformity
9:30: Malevolent Creation
7:40: Broken Hope
5:15: Unsung Destroyer
4: Untoten Krieg
Additionally, there's an aftershow inside the Cuban Club Cantina starting at 12:30 a.m., with Painkiller headlining the indoor stage starting at 12:45. To get into the aftershow, you must purchase a special ticket for $65. Otherwise, Florida Metal Fest tickets are $40 advance, $50 at the door. VIP tickets are $95.
