So the Warriors of Metal Open Air Festival V is all set for next weekend (29-30 June)! I wrote a post about the festival way back in April, and if you haven’t seen it recently (or if you haven’t seen it at all), you should definitely look at it again, because there have been several changes to the line-up since it was originally published!
I also noted in that earlier post that there would also be a third day of activities: a pre-festival show on Thursday night (28 June) with details to be announced later. Well… now it’s later.
Warriors of Metal Pre-Fest Showcase

Thursday 28 June 2012 | 8:00pm (doors 7pm) | all ages | $10

All attendees will receive a raffle ticket at the door to be entered in a drawing for a “Bag O’Metal” prize at the end of the show.
There will be no advance sales for this night’s show; tickets will be sold at the door only.
As a special added bonus, I hear that Mark “The Shark” Shelton, guitarist of WOM Fest Friday night headliners Manilla Road also plans on dropping by the pre-fest show, just to hang out with the audience:
Prompted about how the fans will most definitely love an appearance by him, even if he had just arrived from the airport, Shelton stated: “Yep, it’s always all about the fans for me man. I won’t be hiding out anywhere! I will be right there in the crowd with the rest of them. I’m just a metal head at heart man and no different than anyone else. I’m all about the gig. I want to see as many bands as I can!”
Discounted advance tickets for the WOM V are still available to purchase here, but remember these are only available through Thursday (28 June)!
