Rise Above Fest draws crowds to Bangor Waterfront

Concert goers flocked to the Bangor Waterfront Saturday and Sunday for the fifth Rise Above Fest, a yearly concert featuring metal and modern rock bands and benefiting suicide prevention organization SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education).

Expanded to two days this year, the concert on Saturday featured KORN, Stone Sour, Seether, Skillet, Falling in Reverse, Red Sun Rising, Crobot, Dragon Force, Cane Hill, Ded and Killer at Large.

Sunday artists included Shinedown, Halestorm, Theory of a Deadman, Hellyeah, All That Remains, Pop Evil, Starset, Avatar, Kyng and Black Map.

Seether’s lead singer, Shaun Morgan, started Rise Above Fest to raise money for SAVE following his brother’s death by suicide in 2007. Now in its fifth year in Bangor, the festival has raised more than $100,000 for suicide prevention.
