KILLSWITCH ENGAGE returns to Michigan to headline Dirt Fest 2014! This is the band’s first Michigan Festival date for original vocalist Jesse Leach since the 2012 Trespass America Tour.

Coming off of a Rock On The Range appearance, and most notably, a Grammy Nomination for ‘Best Rock Performance’ for “In Due Time” from their latest Roadrunner Records release Disarm The Descent, KILLSWITCH closes their 2013-2014 World Tour at Dirt Fest 2014!

The 2014 Dirt Fest lineup includes: KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, Sid Wilson of SLIPKNOT, POWERMAN 5000, HED PE, NONPOINT, CHIMAIRA, BATTLECROSS, GEMINI SYNDROME, TANTRIC, SMILE EMPTY SOUL, LOCAL H, REDLIGHT KING, LIKE A STORM, NOTHING MORE, EYES SET TO KILL, GIFT GIVER, BLUE FELIX, PSYCHOSTICK & A Special Mystery Co-Headliner to be announced on July 19th.

Known mostly for its quiet Outlet Mall, the town of Birch Run, MI will once again get turned on its head at Dirt Fest 2014 on Saturday, August 9th. Dirt Fest celebrates its 16th year as it presents over 50 live National and Local acts on multiple stages, proving once again that Rock & Roll is alive and kicking!

Dirt Fest is hosted by Matt and Andy Dalton of Dalton Brothers Entertainment, along with Banana 101.5 FM, and is presented by Ourtunez at the Birch Run Expo Center.

Dirt Fest is an all-day, all-ages music festival that the Daltons have developed from humble beginnings and grown a reputation for being a must attend event every year for fans of established and emerging hard rock and metal music. Dirt Fest has showcased a multitude of acts from Michigan born bands such as POP EVIL, BATTLECROSS, CHIODOS, WILSON & CRITICAL BILL to National headlining bands like TRAPT, SEVENDUST, IN THIS MOMENT and CLUTCH while continuing to make an enormous effort to feed the pot with younger developing acts.

In addition to VIP Ticket Packages, Dirt Fest will offer Meet & Greet opportunities and will have several media outlets broadcasting live coverage from the show and interviews with the bands. $35 General Admission tickets will go on sale Friday May 23 at 10am and VIP tickets are currently on sale for $80, which includes early entry into the festival, access to the VIP tent, raised seating, access to the private bar where the bands hang out, private VIP restrooms, and an event t-shirt.

For more information, please visit the website at www.dirtfest.com. Birch Run Expo Center is located at 11600 N. Beyer Rd Birch Run, MI 48415
