Lazerfest speculation: Pop Evil, Five Finger Death Punch and more

Published on February 18th, 2014 | by Joe Lawler

Last night the Lazerfest Facebook page made its first posts in months, with the image up above of a bottle of soda and a devil. It’s not a huge leap to guess that’s a hint that Pop Evil will play the festival. Or Generic Soda is The Devil, a band I just made up but am now tempted to start.

In my last Lazerfest speculation post I’d theorized that the festival might be held on May 30 or June 1, due to Rockfest being held on May 31 in Kansas City and the fact that the two festivals often happen within a day of each other.

Well, there’s also going to be another (unaffiliated) Rockfest in Council Bluffs on May 30 in Council Bluffs, so that show (again, all speculation) means Lazerfest’s most likely date out of those two is probably June 1.

The bands announced for the Council Bluffs Rockfest are Five Finger Death Punch, Black Label Society, Hellyeah, Killswitch Engage, Sick Puppies, Escape The Fate, Emphatic, and Gemini Syndrome. All those bands but Emphatic and Gemini Syndrome have played Lazerfest before. None of them have June 1 dates announced yet.

Gemini Syndrome and Emphatic do play Wooly’s together tomorrow night, opening for Red.
