A powerful rock and metal lineup takes the stages of Fargo Brewing Co. on a hot Sunday afternoon in Fargo, North Dakota.
Rock the Rails is a new rock music festival that has taken place at Fargo Brewing Company the last two years. The 2021 festival featured bands like Beartooth, Wage War, Stitched Up Heart, and Throw the Fight performing on the outdoor stage in the venue’s parking lot, and local bands playing sets in between the outdoor stage’s shows inside the Hall at Fargo Brewing!
This year the festival featured the bands Void of Vision, Hollow Front, We Came As Romans, and the headliner, August Burns Red, performing on the outdoor stage. Rotating sets with the outdoor performances, the bands Ashfall, Vessels, Trance Monolith, and These Hearts (who were playing a special reunion show to a crowd of ecstatic fans who had been missing the band’s live shows!) played on the packed Hall stage inside the venue! Fans were able to make it to every set indoor and outdoor due to the revolving set times and venue’s easily accessible entrance.
The all-ages show went from 4pm until 10pm with the Ashfall, Void of Vision, Vessels, Hollow Front, and Trance Monolith playing half hour sets and These Hearts and We Came As Roman playing 45 minute long sets. August Burns Red took the stage right before the sun began to set and played an hour and a half set to close out the night.
The Sunday show also featured local beers on tap from the brewery and local food options available for purchase like wood fired pizza and hot dogs that fans took advantage of during the busy evening of metal music.
This show was a part of August Burns Red’s Through the Thorns Tour that started on July 15th in Harrisburg, PA and will be coming to an end on August 27th in Long Island, NY. Make sure to catch them along with Void of Vision, Hollow Front, and We Came As Romans on the remaining tour dates!
