Last month we told you about Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare, a massive music-and-horror event kicking off this October. At the time we only had a partial list of participating bands, but as of now the full performance lineup and schedule (with one notable exception) has been posted to the official event site.
Rob and his band will be headlining act the closing night festivities, with hit rockers Eagles of Death Metal, gothic icons 45 Grave and industrial rock unit Powerman 5000 (featuring FEARnet's very own Spider One) supporting. Another FEARnet fave, Motionless in White, will be playing on October 26th.
The Great American Nightmare runs every Thursday through Sunday from October 10th to November 2nd at FEARplex in Pomona, CA, and the schedule is mostly broken down by genre: alternative rock on Thursdays, EDM on Fridays, hard rock & metal on Saturdays, and Latin-focused artists on Sundays.
