Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival – the first true European-style open air festival for extreme music fans in the U.S. – officially announced their fifth-year line-up details in late May. The festival will take place September 4, 5, 6 and 7, 2019 at Cave In Rock, IL’s Hogrock Campground, where fans will experience two days of pre-parties and activities, plus two more days of non-stop blistering sets from the best bands in underground extreme music of all kinds.
Previously announced headliners include Soulfly, Vio-lence (in their only Midwestern appearance), and Kataklysm. Today, Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival announced the addition of another headliner – Massachusetts modern metal icons Unearth, as well as heavy Arizona frontrunners Incite and Florida up-and-comers Prison.
Trevor Phipps of Unearth says, “Illinois! We’ll see you this September at the Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival. This is one of the heaviest fests out there and we are geared up to be part of it. See you soon.”

Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival is an independently run event managed by a small team of passionate, hard-working music fans – including a promoter who has been involved in the underground and extreme music for over 25 years. The festival originated with the goal of providing fans a true open air festival atmosphere without having to travel to Europe, and each year that goal has been met, with stories of the festival’s success spreading by word of mouth online and in the underground. Previous Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival headliners include Obituary, Napalm Death, Demolition Hammer, Death Angel, Overkill, Venom Inc. and more, and last year, the festival was chosen as one of the only events to screen “Slave To The Grind” – a recently released grindcore documentary by Canadian filmmaker Doug Brown.
