Read more here for details how to donate: Our band Verge of Umbra has recently won a huge live heavy metal music competition that was held in Guatemala City and, as a result, we will be representing not only our country Belize but all of Central America at the Wacken Open Air Festival 2017 in Germany. It is held annually for the past 26 years and is the largest heavy metal festival in the world having roughly 86,000 attendees each year. The Festival spans for three days and is scheduled for August 3rd to the 5th 2017.
