Ticket Info:

VIP - VIP tickets are $450.00. Each VIP Ticket comes with one Guest Ticket. The Guest Ticket holder is entitled to most of the benefits as the Primary Ticket holder which includes early access to event, the breakfast buffet, and sampling all the beers. However, only one set of 25 Drink Tickets, and only one set of 12-Bottles is included. These will be given to the Primary Ticket holder who can share with their guest if they choose. Additional Drink Tickets and Bottles (if available) will be allowed to be purchased by the Guest Ticket holder if they choose.

GENERAL ADMISSION - General Admission tickets are $45.00.

METAL FEST -  METAL FEST tickets for the first 100 tickets are only $15.00. After first 100 tickets are sold the price is $20.00. If there are any tickets available by the day of the event the price is $20.00.

METAL FEST begins right after our Dawn of a Dark Day Party. If you purchase either VIP or General Admission tickets to Dawn of a Dark your ticket also grants you access to METAL FEST. There is nothing else you need to do. Alternatively, you may purchase tickets specifically for METAL FEST. This is a 21+ event. There will be plenty of Adroit Theory beer including any of the special releases that remain after the beer festival. However, no guest beers from Dawn of a Dark Day will be served.


Foehammer - Hailing from the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, Foehammer is doom metal in the truest sense of the appellation, crushing, and unrelenting.

Outer Heaven - Pulverizing Death from the backwoods of Pennsylvania. That is all you need to know.

Horrendous - Aiming to harness the mystique and aura of a genre losing traction, the band emerged from a desolate scene to chart an unfamiliar path into the depths. Under cover of darkness, they could be found weaving webs of raunchy riffs through the rehearsal space air.

11:00am = VIP Pours and Bottle Sales begin

Both Dawn of a Dark Day + METAL FEST will be held in a heated tent on the rear of the building. It is a rain or shine event. That said, it is January and there are some weather conditions (Ice, Significant Snow, etc) that might force us to reschedule this event. We will make a decision on any rescheduling on the Thursday before the event. In the event of a reschedule, the tentative make-up date is February 2nd.
