You’ll recognize Cage9’s song “Wasteland” as the soundtrack for last year’s WW Highlight’s Reel video! Hear it on the band’s new album “Hypesthesia,” and live this year as they return to bring their brand of heavy and melodic boot stompers to the Wasteland stage! Cage9 has also shared the stage with everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to Bad Religion and Asking Alexandria.
Every year, they fly over from the UK and try to set a new bar for the level of mayhem on our main stage, and nothing could keep them away from our 10 year celebration!
