The festival has also announced Blackest After Dark: an exclusive after party that will be held on the Blackest Of The Black festival grounds. The event will serve as a listening party for Danzig’s new album Black Laden Crown, which will be spun in full, as well as heavy music from KLOS. Kicking off at 10:30 p.m. and lasting late into the night, the carnival rides and bar will remain open for the duration of the party. Admission to Blackest After Dark is included in Friday’s festival admission.
Glenn Danzig’s comic book company Verotik will be hosting special signings at their booth during the festival, including signings from Danzig himself, only on Friday, May 26th. Additionally, award-winning comic book artist Simon Bisley will be signing on both nights of the festival, Friday, May 26th and Saturday, May 27th.
The Verotik area is only one of a slew of dark attractions to be featured at Blackest Of The Black. The festival will also feature a roaming freak show filled with contortionists, demons, and more, thrill rides, and a Sugar Skull Contest. The main attraction, Castle Danzig is a fully immersive walkthrough experience of agony and ecstasy, all based on the music and graphic novels of Glenn Danzig. Within the vicinity of the eerie castle and courtyard, attendees will find a sacrifice altar, bondage stage, suspension stage, electro stage, blood bath, a padded cell, stocks, cage dancers, and more!
