After quickly selling out its inaugural year with 25,000 fans in attendance, Northern Invasion expands to two full days in 2016. Set for Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15 at Somerset Amphitheatre in Somerset, WI, just outside the Twin Cities, Northern Invasion will feature the biggest names in rock on three stages with expanded campgrounds.

The current Northern Invasion band lineup is as follows: Disturbed, Rob Zombie, Korn, Shinedown, Chevelle, A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, Seether, Lamb Of God, Ghost, Sixx:A.M., Pop Evil, Clutch, Sevendust, Hellyeah, P.O.D., BABYMETAL, Black Stone Cherry, Yelawolf, Trivium, Asking Alexandria, Parkway Drive, Saint Asonia, Butcher Babies, Turbowolf, Red Sun Rising, Beartooth, Enter Shikari, Aranda, Lacey Sturm, Avatar, Monster Truck, From Ashes To New, The Glorious Sons, Wild Throne, Audiotopsy, RavenEye, City Of The Weak and more.

“Year one of Northern Invasion was everything we hoped it would be, and then some,” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. “The incredible rock fans of the upper Midwest came out in full force, and the response was so overwhelmingly positive that we just had to expand! We’ve got two full days in 2016 with over 40 bands, more stages, more camping, new VIP amenities, and an upgraded food experience. This is turning into something really special up North, and we’ve got the loyal rock audience to thank for it.”

“Areee Youuu Readyyy!!? Come rock with us in the Great White North. KORN can’t wait for the Northern Invasion!” says KORN’s James “Munky” Schaffer.

CHEVELLE’s Sam Loeffler says, "We are super excited to play Northern Invasion 2016! Be prepared!! We’re going to rock new CHEVELLE songs from the upcoming release and, of course, play the fan favorites."
