Zombifest organizers have decided to move forward with the festival and are moving it to downtown Cape Coral to provide Lee residents with the "Ultimate Halloween Experience"
This exciting one night event on Saturday, Oct. 19, will feature national bands like headlining act Mushroomhead, One Eyed Doll, XFactor1 and Ionia. Costume contests will have several prizes including a custom one of a kind guitar by Scream Guitars. This guitar is made just for Zombifest and signed by all the performing bands. There are crazy sideshows and the famous Dr Blasphemy hosts the entire event. These factors combined will be the perfect storm for the Ultimate Halloween Experience.
Mushroomhead is one of the most unique and adventurous alternative metal bands working today. Known for their stunningly theatrical live show and artsy masks, this innovative band has forged new ground in the rock world and influenced many other bands to push the envelope and bring art into rock.
