Total terror – Outbreak friday review

Author Eetu Oranen - 5.7.2022

Outbreak festival celebrated its 10 years anniversary this year with massive line up of emo, hardcore, metal and punk. This festival had something for everyone and truly left no-one cold. Friday had a full day of music acts, kicking off with straight edge metal band Year of the Knife, UK metalcore kings Renounced and emo band Oversized.

Friday server a lot of punches, stagedives, moshing and tears of joy and pain. Legendary Incendiary and special show of Your Demise made crowd go crazy, and the amount of stagedives was huge. It seems like audience of Outbreak has had something inside to release this weekend.

Outbreak Festival had an special artist, which was made well in secret, performing the Friday evening before Terror and Knocked Loose on main stage. Is it Judiciary? Is it Jesus Piece? Even hardcore legends in Madball? The evening came to this point, and many were incredibly pleased when the special quest turned out to be Malevolence, serving huge load of mosh riffs to this international audience.

After the Malevolence, there was no rest – Terror came to play their new record “Pain into Power” and old classics who the entire crowd seemed like knowing. After Terror smashed the stage, the metalcore band Knocked Loose made crowd everyone go crazy – the punks, metalheads and hardcore kids.

The Outbreak Festival took place 24.-26.6. in Bowlers Exhibition Centre, Manchester UK and is headlined by huge artists such as Terror, Knocked Loose, Turnstile, Basement and huge load of other hot bands.
