Battle on the Mountain!
Due to popular demand, the Saturday of MMHRF2 will begin with a raging "Battle on the Mountain". This event is designed to give new bands get a chance to play a great venue, with fantastic production, great exposure for their music AND great prizes that benefit the future of their band. What's that.....? They also get FREE weekend passes for the event JUST FOR PARTICIPATING?
