‘Herd Immunity Fest’ With Static-X + More Changes Name, Still Happening Next Month
UPDATE: Nonpoint have officially dropped off the bill following a post made by Powerman 5000's Spider One, who derided on Twitter, “A bunch of bands that I consider peers and some friends are partaking in a show called ‘herd immunity fest’, which by that title is basically saying to their fans, come see us and we hope you get sick. What the actual fuck??” Nonpoint contended they backed out due to the fest's name. The fest also announced a reduced outdoor occupancy by 80 percent and that it will no longer be called 'Herd Immunity Fest,' though no other name was given. "Mini Fest" had also appeared on advertising before. See that update toward the bottom of the page.
The name of the fest embraces the concept of a population's ability to resist the spread of a contagion, typically achieved through the use of vaccines. The threshold is reached when a certain percentage of the population has built up an immunity to a given contagion, bringing the risk of community spread to nearly nil.
The festival's organizers view the weekend activities as a necessary component in mitigating the stress of everyday life brought on by the pandemic and the resulting nationwide economic closures.
Other acts set to perform at the Q & Z Expo Center include Flaw, Blacktop Mojo, Metallica and AC/DC tribute bands (One and Thunderstruck, respectively), Kaleido and more. View the daily lineups below and, for more information, head here.
