On May 5 this year, the Metal Community will come together for a united event, Metal United World Wide. To overcome the distances between the widespread individual communities, shows will be organised in over 50 countries and almost 60 cities around the world on the same date under the united banner.
All continents except Antarctica are in. Canada, the US, Germany, Ukraine and Australia are probably the less surprising participants. The Central and Latin American countries as well as Turkey, Indonesia, Thailand and India should not come unexpected either. But how about Kenya, Zimbabwe and Gabon? And did you know that Papua New Guinea, Mongolia and Lebanon have a Metal Scene? Even war-torn Syria is planning to join the party with a show in Damascus. Currently 51 countries are participating and some others are considering to come on board as well. The first lineups have already been announced and you might want to have a look at them and check out bands from all parts of the world. Or take a trip to one of the shows? Here is the complete list: Metal United World Wide shows HERE.
Of course such a project needs a lot of support. The Metal Community is chipping in and assisting with promotion, media coverage, artwork and of course organizing shows: www.metal-united-world-wide.com/partners.
So where will you party on 5 May 2018?
