Heavy metal is a different music genre from rock, after all. I just think that people get waaay too caught up in what label a band belongs to, and what type of festival this is supposedly meant to be. Calling it a rock festival doesn't mean that no other band can play, that type of thinking just seems unecessarily rigid..
Heavy Metal is a type of Rock music. It evolved from rock music. No rock, no metal.
No blues, no rock
No slaves, no blues
So basically, metal is a subgenre of black people
