DCF Concerts presents Kattfest 2019, which will feature iconic metal giant Marilyn Manson. Each year the Oklahoma City rock radio station 100.5 The KATT brings top rock, hard rock and metal artists to Oklahoma City for the annual Kattfest. Fans are always eager to see who the radio station brings to the Zoo Amphitheatre stage. When the announcement of Marilyn Manson as the headliner for the 2019 festival was made in August, OKC rock fans couldn’t wait for tickets to go on sale. The upcoming appearance on Saturday, October 26, 2019, will mark the first time Marilyn Manson has been to Oklahoma City since May 15, 2012, at the Diamond Ballroom during the Hey Cruel World… Tour. Manson is a huge draw for the annual festival and several fans will be in attendance.
Metal artists Bad Wolves will be providing direct support for Marilyn Manson. Bad Wolves released their debut album Disobey, which peaked at number 3 on the Billboard US Rock charts and produced three top 10 Billboard US Mainstream Rock singles, including the band’s cover of The Cranberries “Zombie”, “Hear Me Now” featuring Diamante and “Remember When”. Disobey helped the band gain a large mainstream following that continues to grow with each performance. Bad Wolves’ second album N.A.T.I.O.N. is scheduled for release on October 25, 2019, the day before Kattfest. Two singles have been released from the album, “I’ll Be There” and “Killing Me Slowly”, and both have been played in regular rotation on rock radio stations.
Other artists scheduled to appear at Kattfest 2019 include Filter, Candlebox, Saint Asonia, 10 Years, Blacktop Mojo and more. The 2019 festival will deliver a full day of amazing talent with an assortment of artists sure to please any rock fan. This is one you don’t want to miss and could turn out to be one of the top shows of 2019. Tickets are still available via the Zoo Amphitheatre website or at the box office, and fans can also go to any local Buy For Less store to purchase tickets.
