A magical evening, three bands that yearn for the golden days of live touring find themselves in a cyberscape of infinite possibility. Join us for this virtual bacchanal as Howling Giant, Horseburner, and Jakethehawk rekindle the riff and stoke the fires of friendship in a live experience unparalleled in the digital age. The RIPPLEFEST VIRTUAL live stream will start on Friday 18th December, 2020 at 7:00PM EST (01:00AM CET). This event is designed for you to move your coffee table out of the way and jump around your living room, so join the party and keep your screens ready!
JAKETHEHAWK – 07:00 PM EST (01:00 AM CET)
Formed in 2016, Jakethehawk has always sought to synthesize the classic, riff-centric sound of proto-metal’s pioneers with the textures of psychedelic rock and progressive rock. Additionally, heavy influence is drawn from the band’s home turf… both from the the lush, wooded river valley and from the rich tradition of folk music that still blossoms here.
HORSEBURNER – 08:00 PM EST (02:00 AM CET)
Mountain-melting stoner metal from Parkersburg, USA. Stoner metal. Sludge. Doom. Call it what you will, Parkersburg, West Virginia’s Horseburner creates riff-heavy rock n’ roll to shake your insides.

HOWLING GIANT – 09:00 PM EST (03:00 AM CET)
Born out of some space fuzz chamber and dropped down on Nashville, Tennessee, Howling Giant’s form of metal is a unique and eclectic fairy tale trip through the stars.

The RippleFest Virtual show will be available on Ripple socials after the event.
Say Howling Giant: “We’ve been streaming on Twitch every week since August, and we wanted to bring our dearest friends into the fold. Both Jakethehawk and Horseburner are some of our favorite bands to play with live. Because of the wild ride that is 2020 we’ve all had to cancel many tour plans, so we were excited to reconnect with our comrades in a whole new live show experience that you can enjoy from your favorite couch or sitting apparatus.
“Even though 2020 has been awful and the future of live events is still hanging in the balance, one thing that continues to be awesome is music. we miss playing in big rooms of people, but we’re still fortunate to get to play with our best friends and I have just as much enthusiasm jamming with them as I do on a big stage. The fact that we get to share this event with two of our favorite bands is really icing on the cake. The fact that we can count the guys in those bands among our friends is extra icing. Times are uncertain but I am infinitely grateful to be able to use the technology to hang with our friends and play for people” add Jakethehawk.
