XFest, Aug. 26, Idaho Center


The sixth annual X Fest, a musical throwdown put on by radio station 100.3 The X, promises to be another raucous good time. Bigtime bands from across the country will gather for this year's show, aptly entitled the Carnival of Madness.

Music comes courtesy of Shinedown, Buckcherry, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust, Drowning Pool, 10 Years and Seasons After. Even a local band will be joining the craziness: Emmett-based The Forgotten won a coveted opening spot during The X's Local Cage Match when listeners voted them in.

Along with all the music, there will be an autograph booth and live broadcasts all day. The madness starts when the gates are flung open at 2:30 p.m. and you can still win tickets by tuning in to 100.3 The X.

No backpacks, no cameras and no outside food or drink. One non-frozen bottle of water per person is OK.
