Berserker III Takes Over The Masonic Temple this Weekend!

This weekend Berskerker is bringing a lineup of some of the best names in Metal to Detroit for three crazy nights. This is the third year for the festival that is the brainchild of Veronica and Shawn Knight (Child Bite). The first two years the event took over The Loving Touch and the WAB, but the fest has grown so much in just a couple of years that they needed to move to a new venue. So this year Berserker will make The Masonic Temple its new home.

The event will feature 3 nights of music across 3 stages. It's happening this Thursday thru Saturday, March 3rd - 5th. The lineup includes local greats like Snakewing and Old Gods, alongside national acts like Macabre and Cannabis Corpse. Check out the full list of who is playing each night with set times below.
Tickets for Berserker are available two different ways. First, there are the single day passes that will run you $25 a day if you purchase them in advance or $30 a day if you wait 'til the day of. But, for just $45 you can get in to all 3 nights. $45 to see about 50 bands is a pretty amazing deal! The price of weekend passes will also go up $5 to $50 if you wait until the day of to buy them, so do yourself a favor and purchase your pass in advance at BerserkerDetroit.com. While you are there, check out previews and music videos from all of the bands on the bill. You can also buy tickets in person at UHF in Royal Oak or at The Crofoot box office.

Thanks to the amazing people behind Berserker we are also giving away one pair of weekend passes! That means you and your friend will get in to all three nights for FREE, saving you about 100 bucks! If you would like to enter to win these passes, please send your name over to hipindetroit@gmail.com with your name in the body and Berserker in the subject. If you would like to double your chances at winning, tell us you want to go on social media! Just tell everyone you want to go to Berserker for free and make sure you tag Hip In Detroit (@hipindetroit) and #Berserker in the post so we see it! You can hit us up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or all three!

Before things kick off on Thursday there is one more night of music on Wednesday night that you won't need passes to get into. PREserker is the FREE kickoff party for Berserker and this year it's happening at Small's. The lineup for PREserker includes Cloud Rat, The Armed, Gore, ReverendStone Ritual, Plasticizer and Pandemonium. Things kick off at 7 p.m., there will be two stages of music, and all ages are welcome.

Whether you make it to PREserker, just one night of Berserker, or all four nights, this is a do not miss event! One of the best punk & metal fests around and we are lucky enough to have it right here in Detroit.

  1. These shows have completely destroyed the once incredible Masonic Temple. I'm all for Metal, and I'm all for shows in Detroit, but dude... what has been done to this once incredible building is a travesty.
