Last weekend during Dirt Fest you may have noticed a tent where there were a bunch of people jumping around and rocking out with some inflatables. Well that was the Ourtunez tent and now we know why folks were acting all goofy in there.
It was no secret to anyone that knows me or listens to my show, that Powerman 5000 was the band I was most excited to see at Dirt Fest 2014. What you might not know is the bands futuristic front man, Spider One, is also an artist.
When it comes to metal, Battlecross were the kings of Dirt Fest 2014. It started with the fans chanting Battlecross then they started chanting Kaleb which is frontman Gumby's son (coolest thing I saw all day), and then the metal started. It truly was a badass band to watch from start to finish.
Nonpoint enforced something known as the "Nonpoint Rule" at Dirt Fest 2014, meaning everyone had to bounce while they rocked the stage. Judging from this video, I'd say no one disobeyed. This is easily one of the best moments we captured on film this year.
There's no doubt that Nonpoint put on one of the best performances at Dirt Fest this past weekend. Elias had that crowd jumping around like nobody else, reminding all of us how important they still are to the rock world. In my opinion, they simply killed it!
It's hard for us to catch and deliver all of the action at Dirt Fest every year, it's a good thing we have you and you have a camera. This is a compilation of bands that performed this year including Powerman 5000, Nothing More, Like a Storm, Nonpoint and Killswitch Engage.
