The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q: Saturday, August 15 at Hadad’s Lake
This amazing milestone in GWAR‘s torrid history – 30 years! – demands more than just a one-day party. The Scumdogs have set forth a slew of satellite events to be held across Richmond over the three-day weekend of August 14th through 16th. GWAR fans will be busier and more fulfilled than during any time in their miserable existence!
Presented once again by Slave Pit Inc. and sponsored by Ring Dog Rescue, GWAR is piling up the fun like bodies on a heap. Their 30th birthday bash will be the best thing to happen on earth since the wheel. The biggest and baddest event of this or any summer is drawing closer and Bohabs across the world are making plans to descend upon beautiful Richmond, Virginia for The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q! What was once a one day festival has mutated into a three day extravaganza and grown to a size barely recognizable from its previous iterations – now sporting eight heads and functioning male and female naughty bits.
The pre-party kick off starts Friday August 14th with the B4BQ. The B4BQ takes places at The National in Richmond, VA and features a full day of the best face melting head banging metal bands around anywhere, including the entire Summer Slaughter Tour Lineup, Fear Factory and Coal Chamber! Doors at 2:00pm. Tickets for the show are available for purchase HERE.
The main event, the GWAR B-Q, showcasing punk and heavy metal royalty, takes place at Hadad’s Water Park on Saturday August 15th. Advance tickets are available now:
VIP Tickets (Includes Express Lane Wristband) can be purchased HERE
Deluxe Tickets (Includes Express Lane Wristband) can be purchased HERE
Standard Tickets can be purchased HERE
Express Lane Wristbands can be purchased HERE
And the Saturday fun doesn’t end. Once GWAR B-Q security catapults you off Hadad’s premises, more drunken depravity awaits at the GWafter Party held at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. Indulge in some of Richmond’s best locally brewed beer and listen as the Creep-A-Zoids, Today’s the Day, and if you’re lucky, Occultist provide that night’s soundtrack to your miserable life’s existence.
And lastly, drench your hangover on Sunday, August 17th with more sauces and libations as GWAR throws a thank-you bash with the inaugural BRUTAL BRUNCH in Abner Clay Park. Experience the best of intergalactic cuisine right across the street at the new GWARbar located in Richmond’s flourishing art district, Jackson Ward. It all reeks with the class of a morning after pill…er, chill. Morning after chill.
