That’s right, your lords and masters GWAR announced today that all humans who show up at this year’s GWAR-B-Q are guaranteed an orgasm. Of course, for most of you this will amount to a pathetic dribble in your already stained underpants as you die at the hands of GWAR, but all sales are final!

This year’s GWAR B-Q is a three day celebration of all things GWAR marking the band’s 30th year with a weekend long Birthday Bash on August 14th, 15th and 16th. As in years past, GWAR-B-Q is more than a rock concert, think of it as a field day of hatred and death, with a full program of special events and attractions designed to lure humans to their deaths.


This year will see the return of the “Spew-O-Lympics”, a semi-aquatic-flail-fest of despair! Wanna-be contestants are required to submit a short essay on why they feel they should be considered to participate in this hallowed event. Longer than 200 words ensures immediate disqualification (and dismemberment). The band themselves will read these essays while taking a dump, and judge the top selections. Find out how to enter at The winner goes home with a Blakhart BKT6FR guitar!!


Also returning this year is the GWAR-B-Q, Rolling Wheels of Death Skate Park. In an effort to bump up the number of life altering casualties, GWAR has added a second half pipe that is 6’ tall and 12’ wide with a 7’ transition.  Remember you must be 18 to enter the park and will have to sign a waiver to be able to participate.


The insane freaks from the FBM Bike Co. will also be back again with multiple bike ramps to propel hapless Bohabs high into the air, just to come crashing down into the inky depths of Hadad’s Lake.


Prepare to visit the “Crypt of Chaos”, the GWAR-themed horror experience! Combining Slave Pit’s demented artistry and the pedigree of Tim Bunch’s House of Horrors. This will be one of the sickest, most terrifying experiences of your brief and miserable life. Once inside, you will beg for release, and if you are lucky enough to survive, you will emerge a bloody, broken shell of your former self. Enter at your own risk!


Also, for the first time in its sordid history, the 6th annual GWAR B-Q will host a GWARRIOR Costume Contest! We all know GWAR doesn’t wear costumes, but they encourage you to show up to the event wearing the most outrageous and deranged costume you can come up with for the chance to win a variety of excellent prizes including a BKT6FR GUITAR from BLAKHART, tons of SWAG from MONSTER and a GWAR B-Q skate deck. The winner will also be presented live on stage in front of the festival crowd. The contest takes place on the Scumdog Stage and will be judged by Tony Foresta of local thrash metal masters, Municipal Waste. More info will be announced soon in the events section at

Presented once again by Slave Pit Inc. and sponsored by Ring Dog Rescue, GWAR is piling up the fun like bodies on a heap. Their 30th birthday bash will be the best thing to happen on earth since the wheel. The biggest and baddest event of this or any summer is drawing closer and Bohabs across the world are making plans to descend upon beautiful Richmond, Virginia for The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q! What was once a one day festival has mutated into a three day extravaganza and grown to a size barely recognizable from its previous iterations – now sporting eight heads and functioning male and female naughty bits.

Check out the brand new commercial that details the entire weekend’s events!

The pre-party kick off starts Friday August 14th with the B4BQ. The B4BQ takes places at The National in Richmond, VA and features a full day of the best face melting head banging metal bands around anywhere, including the entire Summer Slaughter Tour Lineup, Fear Factory and Coal Chamber! Doors at 2:00pm. Tickets for the show are available for purchase HERE.

The main event, the GWAR B-Q, showcasing punk and heavy metal royalty, takes place at Hadad’s Water Park on Saturday August 15th. Advance tickets are available now:

VIP Tickets (Includes Express Lane Wristband) can be purchased HERE
Deluxe Tickets (Includes Express Lane Wristband) can be purchased HERE
Standard Tickets can be purchased HERE
Express Lane Wristbands can be purchased HERE

And the Saturday fun doesn’t end. Once GWAR B-Q security catapults you off Hadad’s premises, more drunken depravity awaits at the GWafter Party held at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. Indulge in some of Richmond’s best locally brewed beer and listen as the Creep-A-Zoids, Today’s the Day, and if you’re lucky, Occultist provide that night’s soundtrack to your miserable life’s existence.

And lastly, drench your hangover on Sunday, August 17th with more sauces and libations as GWAR throws a thank-you bash with the inaugural BRUTAL BRUNCH in Abner Clay Park. Experience the best of intergalactic cuisine right across the street at the new GWARbar located in Richmond’s flourishing art district, Jackson Ward. It all reeks with the class of a morning after pill…er, chill. Morning after chill.
