This event is all ages

Otep got their start in late 2000, when singer/band namesake Otep Shamaya brought her Marilyn Manson-meets-Kim Gordon style of singing to a crew of musicians known only as Rob, Moke, and eViL j. The foursome began gigging around Los Angeles and scored a deal with Capitol solely on the strength of their live show (they'd not yet recorded a demo), releasing the Jihad EP the following year. Rumors of cannibalism and dabbling in the mystical arts helped add to their mysterious image, and they found themselves being complimented by the likes of Marilyn Manson himself for their antics. Their eighth live show ever was at 2001's Ozzfest, and Otep stepped back into the studio with Terry Date at the tail end of the year to record their full-length debut, Sevas Tra, which saw the light of day in the summer of 2002. That summer they again joined up with the Ozzfest tour, gaining a prime spot on the second stage. In 2004 the group released its sophomore effort, House of Secrets. Working with producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Otep followed up three years later with The_Ascension and supported it on spring 2007 dates with Static-X.
Dropout Kings
When you take a group of six degenerates from all over Arizona and put them under one roof, the results are proven dangerous. After the dust settled from this eruption, out came DROPOUT KINGS.

A powerhouse of hip-hop and metal with a crew of friends bringing the ruckus along the way.

Never knowing what will happen next and living life with no limits is an understatement.
Ragdoll Sunday
Ragdoll Sunday are a progressive rock band with a line up from around the globe but based in Europe. They blend a number of influences from the rock musical spectrum to create a range of songs, enabling them to play diverse bills since 2017.

A band capable of genuinely reproducing their sound live, Ragdoll Sunday always receive praise for their live performances, known for their energy & authenticity. These live performances earned them the chance to tour as main support to ex-Nightwish vocalist Tarja Turunen in late 2017.

Their debut EP 'Immigrant', engineered by Brian Virtue (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Audioslave, Finch) was released in January 2018, with four stylistically distinct songs demonstrating their repertoire. Over this well received first release, comparisons as diverse as Soundgarden, Minor Threat, Tool & Rage Against The Machine can all be drawn, but with a distinct & truly original voice.

Thanks to this original sound, the forthcoming two singles ‘What A Day’ & ‘Sleeper’ from ‘Immigrant’ were featured on the largest rock & metal podcast in the US; The Jasta Show.

With a real & organic growing fan base & a slew of material waiting to be released, the band plan to bring their unique sound to new audiences in 2018.
