Berserker III Music Fest featuring Voivod, Ghoul, Cannabis Corpse and more to take place this March; full lineup + PreSerker kickoff party details announced


This March, the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan will play host to the annual Berserker Music Fest. Now in its third year, the event, a truly DIY affair founded and organized by Child Bite frontman Shawn Knight and wife Veronica, Berserker III boasts its most devouring lineups to date with the all-ages three-night/three-stage gala featuring appearances by internationally touring acts like Voivod, Ghoul, Conan, Macabre, Cannabis Corpse and Black Tusk as well as a spattering of new and established Michigan-based artists like Acid Witch, Child Bite, Perversion and Shit Life.

Comments Knight, "It's a fucking blast putting this thing together. Veronica and I pick all of the bands and organize the entire weekend. I handle all of the art and a lot of the promotion side too. It's a metric shit ton of work and it's really stressful, but in the end it's all worth it. We're basically just making something that we wish was already had; a bit of the ol' 'if you build it, they will come.' I spent a lot of time at various metal fests last year, either playing them with Child Bite or simply attending them. It's great to see what works, what doesn't, and just in general let it affect how we plan our next event. This is our biggest lineup yet, and our biggest venue, so I can't wait to see how it all turns out!"

Sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon, VGKids, ESP Printing, UHF Records, CJAM 99.1 FM and Woodward Avenue Brewers, Berserker III will take place on March 3rd, 4th and 5th with a special FREE PreSerker kickoff party slated to take place at Small's (Hamtramck) on Wednesday, March 2nd featuring eight bands on two stages. Doors are at 7:00pm. It's all-ages and did we mention it's FREE?

  1. This place has the most perfect environment, great food, tasty wings, lots of good beer, but best of all - probably the best wait staff in all of country. Visited the LA venues last month again, had another great time.
