“‘Furnace Fest‘ took a seventeen year nap before a group of us banded together with hopes of a one-time reunion. After countless difficulties (like a global pandemic and rescheduling three times) the ‘one-time resurrection’ went so well that we knew that it was only fair to share the experience again.

We’re beyond excited to share this first wave of artist announcements and are thrilled to welcome 90 total bands on four stages in one, if not the, most unique venues on the planet. To us, ‘Furnace Fest‘ isn’t a festival. This is a family reunion of the most epic kind.”
