Planet Caravan

September 18 - September 19

AC Entertainment is proud to announce Planet Caravan, a two-day music festival celebrating the origins of heavy music. Featuring a line-up of some of the best emerging and established rock and metal bands, the debut festival showcases heavy music in many of its various sub-genres and incarnations, from doom and psychedelic to progressive and experimental. This year's festival features Maryland hard rockers Clutch, who released their ninth studio album, Strange Cousins from the West, on July 7. Highly influential, recently reunited doom metal legends Pentagram will appear for a rare performance. Swedish progressive metal band Burst will make its first-ever U.S. appearance at Planet Caravan. Orange Goblin, named "the best underground band in Britain," by Metal Hammer magazine, will make their first appearance in three years and their only U.S. performance in 2009. And, hot off their newest release Static Tensions and a major tour with Mastodon, Georgia band Kylesa will bring their sludgy brand of rock to the Planet Caravan stage. Other performers include newly reformed doom band YOB, who return to the East Coast for the first time. Doom metal icon Scott Weinrich (of St. Vitus and The Obsessed fame) appears with his new project Wino. Hot new San Diego band Astra will perform tracks from their recent Rise Above/Metal blade release The Weirding. In other firsts, San Francisco's Orchid will make their debut performance outside the Bay Area. Rounding out the bill will be Mike Vallely's Revolution Mother, modern blues rockers Taddy Porter, and Knoxville's own Pick up the Snake. The Orange Peel
