Among the names the anchored the festival's first-year return included the likes of Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Biohazard, and Machine head just to name a few. Making good on his plans to build the midwestern fixture back to its glory days, festival revivalist Jamey Jasta, along with Sound Talent's Tim Borror and their team have confirmed a mammoth initial line-up for the 2024 Milwaukee Metal Fest return. 

The initial announcement confirmed an expansion of the event, with a pre-party kicking off on May 16th and the main festival slated for May 17th, 18th and 19th at The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee, WI.

The fest will also feature a set from German power metal pillars Blind Guardian as well as deathcore giants Slaughter To Prevail - underscoring the diversity of the line-up. 

Among the standouts from the first wave of bands included the likes of Swedish melodic metal legends In Flames, death metal OGs Deicide and black metal fixtures Marduk just to name a few. MKE also previously confirmed Katatonia, Kamelot, Possessed, Metal Church, Incantation, Skinless and many more.
