"For the public at large, 2020 and 2021 were incredibly stressful and isolating, due to the pandemic," says promoter Jay Tavernese. "In understanding this, I realized that after a long two years, it was finally time for everyone to safely come out for an all-day, outdoor, special event like Pure Filth. Having grown up in Syracuse, I have a great nostalgia for the days of Hellfest (not the French one) from the late '90s…so in that vein, I knew it was time to establish a proper Central New York metal event again. And by combining some of the most legendary acts in the thrash and hardcore genres with the new blood of today, Pure Filth will be exactly that."
He finishes, "I don't know if we'll jam hard enough to top a golf cart pit at Full Terror Assault, but we'll certainly try!"
