Berserker is Back! + Ticket Giveaway

Five years ago, Berserker started out as a small metal festival that featured mostly Detroit names with a few traveling acts. Today, the festival has become a destination for all those that like things a little heavier and little more intense. The event has not only grown in recognition, it has also grown in size. They have outgrown their previous homes in Ferndale and Detroit and moved into one of our favorite venues in town, The Crofoot. This will be the second year that they host their festivities inside their doors. However, this year, they decided to make it a one day, balls to the wall event. So, instead of coming out for multiple nights, you can see multiple bands on multiple stages over one night. To top it all off, their lineup is bigger and better than ever before, and they are giving away a beautiful signed guitar to kick of this year's fest!

This year's event features performances by Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Negative Approach, Macabre, Battlecross, King Parrot, Tombs, Homewrecker, Child Bite, The Armed, Oozing Wound, Shock Narcotic, Bloodiest, and A Deer A Horse. There will be three stages playing music throughout the night and a VIP ticket option that puts you on the balcony drinking some of Berserker's featured beers, including brews from Dark Horse (Marshall), Cellarmen's (Hazel Park), Cognition (Ishpeming), Batch (Detroit), Fillmore 13 (Pontiac), and Exferimentation (Pontiac). Regular tickets are $35 in advance and $45 the day of. VIP tickets are $75 a piece and $85 the day of the show. You can learn more about what you get with each ticket price and purchase your tickets here.
This year's Berserker festivities will kick off with a Pre-Serker party at Small's in Hamtramck. Thursday's pre-party will feature 8 bands on two stages. This includes performances by Midnight, Shed The Skin, Axioma, Throne, Mammon, Manic Outburst, Menagerie, and Steve Harvey Oswald. The music will start at 7:30 and will be done by midnight so that you can get home, get your rest, and get ready for the next night. The pre-party will also feature $1 PBRs for the first hour and it's only $10 to get in if you are going to both shows, $16 if you aren't.

We also have a pair of tickets to give away to attend the show with a friend for free! If you would like to enter to win please email your full name to with the subject line #berserker. We will draw one lucky person this Friday morning and they will get to claim their prize at the door.

Berserker V kicks off at 5 p.m. this Friday!
