RUINFEST is as a celebration of the California underground extreme metal scene. 


The goal is to provide bands with the best platform to deliver their most passionate performance while providing fans with an unforgettable experience.

Each year we assemble a hand-picked lineup full of California's top underground metal acts and fly in talented bands from around the world.

The festival aims to capture the spirit and essence of the underground metal scene, help it prosper, and to deliver the most amazing concert for the fans every year.

RUINFEST has become one of California's most successful and longest running metal festivals and it's because of all the hard work, dedication, and passion from every member of the underground metal community.
