The legendary Furnace Fest is BACK to celebrate its 20th anniversary, and Chad Johnson and Johnny Grimes are here to talk about how they're making it happen (along with some very accomplished people like Mike Ziemer). They break down how they get bands like August Burns Red, Converge, Shai Hulud and Knocked Loose on board, how to draw fans in, the logistics of putting such a big event together, and much more. If you've ever wondered what it takes to produce a festival, this one is for you!
