You don’t need to see a forecast to know what the weather is going to be like in Cleveland in late December. The city will be snowed in! At least that’ll be the case at Cleveland’s vaunted nightclub The Agora as the sixth edition of the Snowed In Festival takes over on Dec. 21. Hardcore band Knocked Loose will make a trip up from their Kentucky lair to headline the event.

Officially known as the Agora Theatre and Ballroom, The Agora once had sister clubs in a dozen other cities, and there have been a couple of other incarnations of the club in Cleveland over the years. Now The Agora is the area’s preferred venue for touring acts like Ministry, Killswitch Engage, Jim James, Blue October, Mayday Parade and Yung Pinch, all of whom have a show at the venue in the coming weeks.

The Snowed In Festival 2018 features lots of hard-hitting support acts, including Chicago’s Harm’s Way, Vein, metalcore band Kublai Khan, Sanction and Sharptooth, but emo and pop-oriented acts like Belmont and Michigan’s Hot Mulligan are also on the bill as is Cleveland’s own Small Talks. A few other local bands get in on the action too; thrash band Hellbound, emo act Dark Spring and their fellow emo band heyohwell will also appear.

In order to fit in all the bands, the Snowed In Festival will start at 5 p.m. General admission tickets are $25 and a VIP package that includes a ticket, early entry, a Snowed In T-shirt and a Snowed In poster is available for $45. Snowed In is an all-ages event.
