For the very first time ever, The Power Of The Riff Festival will come to New York City! The festival, which has been based in Los Angeles for the past two years, will hit Los Angeles on August 11 and New York City on September 1 and 2. Brooklyn’s Warsaw Club will host The Power Of The Riff East, and a limited number of two-day passes are already on sale on TicketWeb. You can buy Saturday tickets here and here when tickets go on sale on July 2 at noon EST.

TPOTR is an event that honors extreme music fans and musicians of all ages, tapping into a lineup that represents the forefathers, milestones and current national touring acts, while shedding light on up-and-coming and local acts. The Power Of The Riff and Southern Lord curate the event, Scenic and BrooklynVegan present it. Here’s the line-up so far, if the mere prospect of a metal music festival in New York City isn’t enough to get you all hot and bothered:

Day One (September 1)
Poison Idea
Negative Approach
Alpha & Omega
Power Trip

Day Two (September 2)
SUNN 0)))
Unearthly Trance
Dead In The Dirt

Additional acts (both supporting and headlining) will be announced shortly, so hold on to your hats!
