Peoria Riverfront – Peoria, IL May 31, 2019
Incoded Entertainment and 105.7 X Spring Fling Festival brings Peoria Riverfront back. The Central Illinois area needs to grow from just a one-night concert series to a 2-day Rock and Metal Festival. The opening day started with the 3AM project, Burden of the Sky, Memphis May Fire, Asking Alexandria and Headliners A Day to Ramber.
A resident of Peoria, the IL local favorite 3AM project has been on the local scene for almost 20 years. I have personally seen these guys evolve into small clubs, back alley warehouses as well as playing random shows throughout the area. It was a wonderful sight to set foot on the big stage. Vocalist Denver, lead guitar Bobby, bassist Bob, and drummer Joey forcibly took the stage. Celebrating 6 studio albums is no surprise that they can still bring people out.

To ask Alexandria

Day to remember
A day to remember Florida residents made headlines for the first day of the festival, and fans couldn’t be more energetic and happy to see them. Lead musicians Jeremy McKinnon, guitarists Neil Westfall and Kevin Schaff, bassist Joshua Woodardom and drummer Alex Shelnat returned to the Midwest to shout “ADTR” to a huge crowd, “Second Sucks” and “Right Back Again Again”. With their Raisin Hell in the Heartland tour set to begin, fans were able to get a glimpse of the peak on the upcoming tour. The finishing band with “The Downfall of You All” walked off the stage as if they were explosives!
