It is time once again for music fans to get ready and prepare themselves for another whole day of nonstop rock and heavy metal as the loudest and heaviest music festival, Pulp Summer Slam, gears up for 2011. On its 11th year, Pulp Summer Slam XI: Resurrection is growing even bigger! For the first time in the festival’s history, three major international headliners will be featured on this 15-hour show, happening at the Amoranto Stadium on April 30, 2011, Saturday.
Presented by Colt 45, Cobra Energy Drink, Frenzy Condoms, Pizza Hut, Tribal Gear, and Pepsi, the Pulp Summer Slam festival is attended by 25,000 to 30,000 music fans every year. Audience attendees composed of music enthusiasts from all over the Philippines, some fans come from foreign countries as far as Sweden, Canada, and USA, as well as neighboring countries such Malaysia and Singapore. Pulp Summer Slam fans travel long distances just to experience this one-of-a-kind show – attending the festival has become a rock and roll tradition.
Pulp Summer Slam XI: Resurrection will be headlined by legendary thrash metal band Anthrax. The band from New York is one of the biggest heavy metal groups in the world – they are currently featured in The Big 4, a name given to the four biggest metal bands of the generation (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax). The band’s fifth studio album Persistence of Time was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the Grammy Awards.
Another international heavyweight, Hellyeah, will also be taking the stage on April 30 as co-headliner. Hellyeah is a super band from Dallas, Texas, composed of rock personalities such as famous drummer from Pantera, Vinnie Paul, Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett from Mudvayne, Tom Maxwell from Nothingface, and Bob Zilla from Damageplan.
