Festival Review - Michigan Metal Fest 2022

During the Summer of 2021, I went on a long camping trip where it rained from the Wednesday I arrived all the way to the Sunday night before I left. So when the forecast for Michigan Metal Fest 2022 called for rainstorms all day, you can believe that I wasn’t fazed one bit.


After multiple postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan Metal Fest finally returned to the gorgeous Leila Arboretum on Saturday, August 13.


The lineup was largely the same as it was when it was initially announced in early 2020 with minimal changes, all while offering a wide collection of bands across the metal genre.
