Sacrivox Productions is very proud to present the largest all Christian Metal Festival in the US this year as they bring to you ‘So Cal Metal Fest 2 A memorial benefit for Dale Huffman’. The Spring of 2016 saw the first installment of So Cal Metal Fest which featured some of the best Christian Metal bands both old and new, with artists like Bloodgood, Worldview, Tempest and Join The Dead just to name a few. Well this years line up is shaping up to be equally if not even more impressive. This is the Summer Fest you will not want to miss.

This years special performance is also being used as a fundraiser for the family of Dale Huffman of Metal Pulse Radio as he recently passed away after a long battle with cancer this past February. Profits from this event will be donated to the Huffman Family. There will also be a special booth showcasing some of Dales Metal Pulse Radio items and some things from his personal collection that will be sold off for the family with all funds going back to the family!
