Uninvited Festival will be kicking off on September 18 - 21 at Brooklyn's Nihil Gallery. The festival promises to bring together skate sessions, art, and a loaded lineup of metal that includes stoner favorites Weedeater, Orchid, Elder, SubRosa, and many, many more. Tickets for each day of the event are available now. The full list of bands appears below.

According to the Uninvited Festival's About section, the event's itinerary is as long as the bill. Skate sessions will take place "on an undisclosed sponsored ramp." Bands will play on an "undisclosed sponsored stage." The Nihil Gallery will host an art exhibit tying the themes of the event together. And at night the gallery "becomes a cinema, showing relevant films on big screen and offering a place to relax." Afterwards, "a DJ will take over and Nihil Gallery becomes an afterparty until daybreak." All of it reads like a dream pitch instead of a settled and scheduled fest, which may account for why it's seemingly coming out of nowhere.

Regardless, the bands Uninvited have curated are impressive. Aside from those mentioned above, September 18 includes Mothership and reformed hardcore band Bl'ast. September 19 features appearances by the touring Black Cobra and Lo-Pan (who also play Saint Vitus on September 18 for an Invisible Oranges-presented show). And the weekend continues bringing the riffs with the Shrine, Lecherous Gaze, Electric Citizen (who were recently confirmed for Roadburn 2015), and breakout band Secret Cutter.

The complete lineup is listed, along with the Uninvited Festival's flyer, below...

Damn was hoping for the real Orchid too. These fakes even use a skull in their logo that looks exactly like the skull-shaped 10" the real orchid once did. what's next, a reversal of man country band?

Yep. Definitely saddened by the Orchid business. What a waste of excitement.

You are not allow to call your festival "uninvited", there has been already a festival with this name since 2003 in paris and montréal, the name has been registered since that time by our festival and all right of using that title has been reserved. so thanks to withdraw the name "Uninvited" of your festival as soon as possible, otherwise we are oblige to do an appellate court by our lowyers.

^ this is a small metal festival in brooklyn. you're a film festival in paris and montreal. get a fucking life, you litigious nerd.

The only thing more annoying than bands who bite other (much, much better) bands' names are litigious festival organizers.

I would think 3:33 should not be invited to this fest.
To me, this seems like the best single-venue rock festival that has ever happened in NYC. Granted, I moved here in '99, but I don't recall ever hearing about anything like this. And, there hasn't been anything in the last 15 years. Props to the guy/people making this happen.

THIS Orchid ROCKS. If you don't know, stop trolling, just stay at home.

$40 is the new $20, $30 is the new $15, $100 is the new $50, $150 is the new $75....etc., etc. etc. Guest list however is still free.

Ok with these types of festivals happening but to disrupt families and waking up babies living in the area is just annoying and rude. Pick another venue next time. This was really disruptive.

This is the perfect location... Very industrial, and construction shit all over the place. No one is hearing this in their apts. If you are, put your windows down. I feel bad for the "babies" that have parents like 2:43. He'll, the outdoor music was done by 10pm, anyway... not like it's rolling at 3am.

Support the scene.
