Furnace Fest Brings A Big Dose Of Punk and Rock Back To Alabama

The dates and lineup for the Birmingham festival have been announced and it’s a feast for punk and rock fans everywhere.

Riding the high of a successful comeback to the scene in 2021, Furnace Fest is excited to announce its return to Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday, September 23 through to Sunday, September 25, for a weekend of performances from 90 bands across three stages. Tickets are available to purchase now.

The three-day festival will bring rock fans from all over together for performances by The Ghost Inside, Alexisonfire, New Found Glory, The Acacia Strain, Anti-Flag, Earth Crisis, Elliott, Stretch Armstrong, Strike Anywhere and many more. Sixty additional bands will be announced later in the year. 

Furnace Fest took a seventeen-year nap before a group of us banded together with hopes of a one-time reunion,” the Furnace Fest team shares. “After countless difficulties (like a global pandemic and rescheduling three times), the ‘one-time resurrection’ went so well that we knew it was only fair to share the experience again. We’re beyond excited to share this first wave of artist announcements and are thrilled to welcome 90 total bands on four stages in one, if not the, most unique venues on the planet. To us, Furnace Fest isn’t a festival. This is a family reunion of the most epic kind.”
