WELCOME TO THE 4TH ANNUAL FULL TERROR ASSAULT OPEN AIR
Full Terror Assault is the first “TRUE” European style Open Air Festival for Extreme music fans right here in the USA. This is NOT a pay to play event and is independently sponsored by a promoter who has been involved in the “underground” and extreme music for over 20 years. Many fans have never had the chance to attend an event like this so if your thinking about coming out this year, please do, you won’t be disappointed. Here is what you will find within. An amazing scenic wooded camping area right on festival grounds on over 115 acres with lakes and a beach, your not pitching your tent in a cornfield. Three(3) days of all things metal on 3 stages with bands representing all genres of music including grind core, death metal, punk, hardcore, thrash, shock rock, black metal and anything with attitude. If that isn’t enough FTA will have contests, vendors, and dj after parties to keep the party going all night. This event is designed to bring bands, vendors, and fans together for a celebration of extreme music without breaking your wallet. MAXIMUM BRUTALITY@MAXIMUM FRUGALITY!!!! See you in August.
Bathrooms are located throughout the campgrounds to meet call and are cleaned frequently. And they are also used frequently, so please do your part to make the porta-potty experience as enjoyable as possible. Use them only to deposit what nature intended, and help keep them clean. .
MEDICAL / SAFETY
Medical and safety staff will be available for anyone who needs basic first aid and will be located centrally within the campground. Check your festival map for specific location and check it often cause things can change. If you have any concerns, or you feel anything less than well, seek them out. And, as we said before, if you’re not sure whether it’s an emergency, act like it is.
LOST AND FOUND
Lost and found is located Entry Trailer. If you lose something, or someone, check there If it (or they) are not there the first time, check again later. If you find something that needs to be returned to its owner, please drop it off at the Entry Trailer or give it to a FTA representative.
DJ AFTER PARTY
After the live music stops the party will continue with a DJ spinning all the best in metal. Of course they will be taking requests so grab a drink and head to the after party tent to meet other metal heads and party till the break of dawn. YES, entry is free!
There are NO GUEST LISTS!!!! Unless you are a headliner/co-headliner or this was agreed upon during the booking process, no guest lists will be allowed. So your girlfriend, wife, merch person will all need to purchase a ticket.
There will not be any lockers available, so lock up all personal items in your car. I highly suggest buying a car pass.
If you need cash, ATMs are not on campgrounds. The nearest ATM is about 20 minutes from the campground so plan ahead. Cash only at the ticket booth and most vendors are cash only so bring plenty of cash and keep it safe (car pass hint hint…)
There is cellphone reception on the property, but it can be limited at times so service can be inconsistent. We will not have phone charging stations on site so as I said to keep your devices charged buy a car pass. Phones for emergencies are available at the main Entry Trailer.
RESPECT THE CAMPGROUNDS
We want to ensure that when this festival is done there is no damage to the campgrounds or the facilities on the campground. Lets show respect by leaving the grounds the way you found them clean. Last year everyone did an amazing job with their clean up. THANK YOU
FTA stands firmly against drug use. First, It’s dangerous to your health, especially in the heat. Second, it can ruin the weekend for you and those around you. And last but not least it’s against the law: If it’s illegal outside the festival, it’s illegal inside, too remember the fest is in Illinois.
If you see someone who is sick, upset, scared or clearly having a bad experience, get help. Find a medical tent or festival staff member. Provide all the information you can to safety or medical staff. Our “no questions asked” policy means neither you nor the sick person can get in trouble when you seek help.
Our number-one concern is the well-being of all FTA attendees. By steering clear of substances and getting help for those who need it, you are contributing positively to the FTA experience, and the entire FTA staff thanks you for that.
This event is BYOB the sale of alcohol is strictly prohibited. If you’re legal, you can bring it for your own enjoyment only.

DON’T BE THAT GUY / GIRL
Negativity and a bad attitude, we’ve all seen it too many times to leave it unsaid. You’ve seen it too. That one dude who just ruins a good time with a bad attitude. Or that one girl who is loud and is a total vibe killer. It’s a powerful cautionary tale that can help us all have a good time.
