It’s hard enough for us to keep up with all the festivals going on downtown anymore, let alone all of Springfield, let alone all of Central Illinois.  However, it’s been a minute since we’ve told you about any summer festivals in other Illinois towns that are close enough for an hour or so drive to Springfield so here we go! Here is a new festival happening in Bloomington, Illinois called “Real Ones Only Fest” happening on Saturday, July 20th. It’s current lineup features a whopping 18 bands predominately of the grindcore and fast hardcore genres. If you like fast intense music then this is the festival for you! We also hope you like your band names written out in all caps because that is what you’re getting for the lineup below:

MINIMUM WAGE ASSASINS (DEKALB, ILLINOIS GRINDCORE) V.S. MELTING ROT (ILLINOIS GOREGRIND)
SHORT ORDER (CLEVELAND, OHIO FAST HARDCORE)
FLVX CAPACITOR (INDIANA GRINDCORE)
INTERFERENCE PATTERNS (INDIANA CHAOTIC HARDCORE/SCREAMO)
SNUFFED (CHICAGO, ILLINOIS HARDCORE PUNK)
LIVID (KENOSHA, WISCONSIN GRINDCORE)
SHRIVEL UP (ILLINOIS GRINDCORE)
REDUCED TO INSTINCT (LOCAL HARDCORE)
FOURSIDE (ILLINOIS POST HARDCORE ONE OFF REUNION)

COL2APSE (PEORIA GORENOISE)
OVERWORRY (C-U SCREAMO)
BIRD LAW (LAKE COUNTY CHAOTIC HARDCORE)

Is that loud enough for you? We spot a couple of past Dumb Fest bands on that list – Livid from Wisconsin and Reduced To Instinct. Pictured above is the band “Snuffed” from Chicago. Below is a player for the band “Short Order” from Cleveland, Ohio who will also be playing.

All of that is only $10. Looks like the festival starts that day at 1:30 pm. Check out a facebook event for Real Ones Only Fest right here. Oh, by the way this is happening at “The Church of Singularity” which we think might actually be a house venue.
