Powerman 5000’s Spider One Calls Out Bands For Playing Upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest”, Nonpoint Drop Off

In unsurprising news, the upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest,” which is set to take place at The Q&Z Expo Center in Ringle, WI on July 16-18, has been generating some controversy, considering we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Among those who called out the event was Powerman 5000’s Spider One, who tweeted the following:

Nonpoint, who were scheduled to perform at the festival, also responded to Spider One saying that they dropped off:

Organizers have also addressed the backlash themselves by changing the name of the event:

“For the record the venues land can accommodate up to 10,000 occupancy. This is an OUTDOOR EVENT for 3 Days. We are only selling 20% of that so anyone has the choice and ability to social distance. The Festival is also not called “Herd Immunity” and the name no longer tied to any of our social media or promotion.”
