An event in which two or more guitarists shred
like crazy. Shred
fests may also contain different instruments as long as the core of the fest contains guitarists shredding like the world is about to end. Shred
Fests are primarily seen in the heavier rock or progressive metal genres, and are usually played during concerts.
"Holy shit man that concert was nuts! Half way through John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess had the sickest Shred Fest I ever heard!"
