This Is Hardcore Fest 2013 ushered in the closing ceremonies with a wallop as GWAR, Sick Of It All, Trapped Under Ice, Suicide File, Negative Approach, 100 Demons, Slapshot, No Redeeming Social Value, Code Orange Kids ,Strength For A Reason, Colin Of Arabia, Clenched Fist, Pride Kills, and Relentless brought the roof down at Philly’s Electric Factory venue.
We already brought you the crowd and candid photos from onsite, which you can peruse HERE. While BTS’s Dante Torrieri and Joshua Cohen were bouncing all over the festival grounds and backstage areas shooting away, our hardcore photo expert Anne Spina was onstage gathering her yearly plethora of band shots. Anne’s tireless work can be viewed in it’s entirety HERE.
As those of you who follow this magazine already know, we keep up with TIH founder and organizer Joe ‘Hardcore’ McKay throughout the year and his Philly Hardcore Shows booking team, so do check back soon for more hardcore coverage.
This Is Hardcore 2014 will be starting a new tradition next year as the festival will be bumped up to the weekend of July 24th through July 27th. Mark your calendars.
