South By So What?! is a yearly festival held in the spring at the QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie, TX. The festival continuously keeps on growing from year to year, currently it is going 7 years strong. Overall, there is a broad mixture of bands that come to this festival from rock to pop and even metalcore. The venue itself has three stages, two main stages and a smaller side stage, all three are well set up and give the concert goers a lot of room to move around and doesn’t let the sound of each band over power the other. This year they changed the set up and made the festival from one day to three, with over 150 bands. This includes a mix of local bands, up and coming artists and, of course, headliners to end the day with a bang.

In 2011 we covered the Mayhem Festival way out in San Bernardino at the San Manuel Amphitheater, nestled deep within the pocket of cities outside the crest of LA county that are commonly referred to as the Inland Empire. Last year, the festival was headlined in this location by a one-off performance by Dethklok, the quasi-cartoon band headed up by Brendon Small from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. Dethklok was curiously joined by the nu-metal bands Disturbed and Godsmack, both of which don’t really pack sufficient punch to be considered true “metal” bands. This year, we returned to cover the yearly festival, only this time the lineup was everything a modern metalhead could hope for. The 2012 edition included Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, As I Lay Dying and more.
