This Satirical Metal Coachella Poster Is the Funniest Thing You’ll See Today
What if Lambgoat and MetalSucks co-presented a version of Summer Slaugher — “The most extreme fest of the month” — that included a “Lamb of God Killadelphia fight scene re-enactment,” a magic show by Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri, an a cappella set by Dying Fetus, a “hardcore dance and moshing lesson” by Bernie Sanders, and a rap battle between Danzig and Doyle? I mean… I’d buy a ticket to see that, wouldn’t you?
Alas, this iteration of Summer Slaughter isn’t a for really real thing — it’s just a satirical, metallicized version of the annual Coachella poster. The parody admat was tweeted out by E.J. Shannon, noted manager and member of The 25 Best Metal Albums of 2010 – 2019 voting panel, but it’s not clear if it E.J. also created it or just shared it. In any case, I tip my hat to whatever genius came up with this. It’s worth enlarging and reading all the fine print.
Check out the poster below. The actual Coachella 2020 will include Rage Against the Machine, Code Orange, and The Hu. Buy tickets here.
