The sixth annual X Fest, a musical throwdown put on by radio station 100.3 The X, promises to be another raucous, rockin’ good time. Bigtime bands from across the country will gather on Thursday, Aug. 26, at the Idaho Center for this year’s show, aptly entitled the Carnival of Madness.
With eight bands taking over the Idaho Center, the event will surely live up to its namesake.
Music comes courtesy of Shinedown, Buckcherry, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust, Drowning Pool, 10 years and Seasons After. Even a local band will be joining the craziness: Emmett-based The Forgotten, won a coveted opening spot during The X’s Local Cage Match, when listeners voted them in.
Along with all of the music, there will be an autograph booth and live broadcasts all day. The madness starts when the gates are flung open at 2:30 p.m. and you can still win tickets by tuning in to 100.3 The X.
The show starts at 3:30 p.m. and tickets are $39.50. No backpacks, no cameras and no outside food or drink (one non-frozen bottle of water per person is OK) allowed.
