Slaughter By The Water 3
is pleased to announce that will be joining up to stream the festival live from the USS Hornet! Fans can watch the main stage performances at the festival on for just a one-time payment of $1.99. The stream will be located here:

"I want to express how extremely happy I am. After all of the time, effort and love that we put into the festival last year, 23,000 people watched the festival online via,” states Slaughter By The Water organizer Nicholas Gomez. “This year, to let the world share in this uniquely historic annual event with us just as they did before, we’re pleased to be teaming up with UStream once again!”

“The purpose for the live stream… we have Exodus performing on a military ship! Although that seems like reason enough, we’re here in the Bay Area throwing the largest metal event to depict the Bay Area’s rich musical history to the entire world,” adds Nicholas. “That’s why we’ve chosen Exodus as the headliner, because they are the originators of Bay Area thrash and got the world to “waltz it up”. What place more metal to do this than on a WWII air craft carrier?”

Aside from Bay Area thrash headliners Exodus, the main stage will also include performances by Philm, Severed Fifth, Absu, Witchaven, Impaled, Autopsy, Fog of War and Abysmal Dawn. The Pier stage will include performances by Enemy In Peril, Desecrator, Necrosin, Hemotoxin, Mudface, Scars of Envy and ZH.

The third annual Slaughter By The Water event will take place on August 25, 2012 on the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier in Alameda, CA. Sponsored by Monster Energy Drink, Lock & Shock, Rock The Bike, Bay Area Rocks, Scion, Native American Health Center, Dunlop, Anchor Bay Tattoos, Ustream, and Expressions College. The event is hosted by Testament’s Chuck Billy.

Slaughter By The Water is a music festival that stands out from the rest. This is not your ‘normal’ American metal festival,” states Nicholas. “We like to keep it interesting by adding some distinct and unique notables. Also, fans can undergo the ‘nautical festival experience’ without having to leave a dock, pay expensive cruise prices, or pop some Dramamine.”

Advance tickets for the main stage performances (general admission) are on sale now and are just $35.00. Tickets cost $45.00 at the door. Tickets are available at Main stage performances begin at 5pm and go until 12:30am aboard the USS Hornet. From noon to 9pm, access to the entire pier, which includes Pier Stage entertainment, food vendors and retailers, is FREE to the public.

In an effort to take part in green initiatives, there will be stationary bikes set up next to the Pier Stage with a power gauge. Attendees can hop on a bike to increase power to the stage… be interactive!

Rock The Bike:
Rock the Bike are inventors and advocates. Their dream is to help spread the spirit of the bike into the broader culture by organizing, entertaining, inspiring, educating, and inventing new ways to get the message out there. Rock the Bike provides Slaughter by the Water with the outside stage entirely powered by you, the rider. Music has a gift to bring us all together. Pedal Power provides an example of team work that helps us have faith that our individual efforts can collectively matter. One person alone can not power this concert but 10 people working together can. Rock the bike and Slaughter by the Water invite you to wake up early, come to Berkeley, help transport equipment by bike to Alameda, set up the stage and be a part of something big. Rock the Bike stands for clean energy and working together. Come join us and help us put the Pedal to the Metal!

Native American Health Center:
The Native American Health Center’s mission is to assist American Indians and Alaska Natives to improve and maintain their physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being with respect for cultural traditions, and to advocate for the needs of all Indian people. The NAHC has teamed up with Slaughter by the Water to promote their Native youth Wellness initiative to address the very serious issue of Teen Suicide in Indian country today. Together the Native American Health Center and Slaughter by the Water plan to reach every teen in need, and to help them know they are loved. The Native American Health Center is a non profit organization serving the California Bay Area Native Population and other under served populations in the Bay Area. This year is NAHC's 40th anniversary; as an organization, they have been serving our community since 1972.

Whole Heart Native Warmth Project:
A non-profit organization dedicated to providing warm blankets to the people of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. This is a grassroots organization working in conjunction with Hearts of the Sacred Spirit. Whole Heart and Hearts of the Sacred Spirit are funded through private donations. All of the proceeds go directly to the materials to make the blankets and the cost to ship them. The blankets are made by volunteers either independently or in a gathering. We appreciate your interest in helping provide warmth to the people of Pine Ridge. If you plan on attending the free to the public "Rock the Bike" stage at Slaughter by the Water, we ask that you bring a donation of a blanket or small contribution that goes directly to the Whole Heart Native Warmth Project. Come enjoy live music, food, and vendors right alongside the USS Hornet.
