Dirt Fest 2014 - FEATURE

In 1998, two coworkers from a local record store in Birch Run, Michigan decided to hold a concert in a park. Dirt Fest was born and has grown ever since to become one of Michigan's largest and longest running festivals for Hard Rock and Metal.

Over the years, the multiple stages have been blessed with hundreds of national acts as well as local Michigan bands, something that Dirt Fest Founder and Organizer, Matt Dalton, holds true to even to this day in his approach to filling a lineup.

"I hope that people have an unforgettable experience," says Dalton. "One that they can tell their friends and their families about, that not only allowed them to see a lot of the bands that they love but hopefully expose them to bands that they have never heard of whether it is a national act that we booked or hopefully, a Michigan band that we booked."

2014's line up included such acts as Killswitch Engage, Powerman 5000, Nonpoint, Murder FM, Critical Bill, The Finale and more. Be sure to watch the credits in the video below for a complete listing.

If you have not yet attended a Dirt Fest event, be sure to get out this year when for the first time, the festival will span 2 days, August 7th & 8th, 2015. This year's lineup features bands like Down, Hellyeah, Pop Evil, Coal Chamber, Fear Factory and a whole onslaught of national and local bands.
