Deer Tick Curated Festival Coming to Rhode Island

Move over, Bonnaroo. Folk-rock group Deer Tick have hit on the next great festival moniker.

“DudeSmash” will bring the likes of Knife Party, Diamond Doves and Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons among many others to The Met Courtyard in Providence, RI this weekend. See below for the full list of performers.

The band thought up the name and idea for the festival while stuck in traffic one day. According to the band, “Stuck in bumper-to-bumper, we made a joke that this must be the traffic for the new Bro-Metal festival, ‘DudeSmash.’ The five of us vowed that if we were ever to curate a festival, no matter the nature of the event, we would name it after that joke.”

The festival features both an indoor and outdoor stage, many Rhode Island-based bands and “most importantly, dude smashing.”

Tickets are on sale now through eTix
