Storm The Gates Festival ft. Limp Bizkit

Some of the biggest names in rock and nu metal will descend on New Zealand in early 2018 for the inaugural Storm the Gates Festival, presented by The Rock FM.

LIMP BIZKIT and Suicidal Tendencies are the first announced headliners for the one-day OUTDOOR extravaganza at Trusts Arena in Auckland on Saturday,

March 17.

The first line-up announcement also includes Skinny Hobos, Written By Wolves and City of Souls, with more big international names and local acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

It’s been 16 years since US rock-rap group Limp Bizkit played on Kiwi soil. Fronted by the iconic Fred Durst, Limp Bizkit took the world by storm in the late 90s and early 2000s with albums such as THREE DOLLAR BILL, Y’ALL$, SIGNIFICANT OTHER and CHOCOLATE STARFISH AND THE HOT DOG FLAVORED WATER.

Some of their hits include ‘Rollin’, ‘Nookie’, ‘My Way’, ‘Behind Blue Eyes’, ‘Take A Look Around’, ‘My Generation’ and so many more. Renowned for their frenzied live performances, the nu-metal legends are set to unleash their classics in their Storm the Gates set.

Fellow US punk-rock outfit Suicidal Tendencies are also guaranteed to be a festival highlight with their signature thrash metal drums and riffs, funky slap bass and the unmistakable vocals of Mike ‘Cyco Miko’ Muir.

The band has released an impressive 12 records since emerging on California’s hardcore punk scene in the 1980s. They include 1988’s HOW WILL I LAUGH TOMORROW WHEN I CAN’T EVEN SMILE TODAY, 1990’s LIGHTS… CAMERA… REVOLUTION - both of which went Gold - and 1992’s THE ART OF REBELLION, which includes three of their biggest hits ‘Asleep at the Wheel’, ‘Nobody Hears’ and ‘I’ll Hate You Better’.

Local rock favourites Skinny Hobos, Written By Wolves and City of Souls, join the first announcement, looking forward to welcoming the first Storm The Gates festival to New Zealand. More acts to be announced in January.
