The ‘Family Values’ tour was a beacon of nu metal culture in the 90s, bringing together acts from the world of mainstream hip hop to bleed the wallets of angsty suburban teens dry. Taking place in 1998 and 1999 and over a few choice years in the naughties, the tour saw massive metal acts like Linkin Park and Korn share the stage with the likes of DMX, Method Man and even Ja Rule.
Now, Korn’s fearless frontman Jonathan Davis has told Metal Hammer that he would like to see the festival make a comeback, with the help of modern trap artists like Migos, Gucci Mane and Future.
“Family Values could definitely happen again. I’d like to bring out trap artists and things reflecting what’s going on right now in music, just like we did back in the day.”
“There’s plenty of aggressive acts in all forms of music that could tour together and do a new Family Values so it’s definitely something we could look at doing again in the future.”
Considering the nu metal revival is in full swing with acts like Ocean Grove holding things down, the tour could most definitely make a comeback with the help of modern hip hop artists.
Korn are making their way to Australia for Download festival this month, headlining the event with the likes of Limp Bizkit and Prophets Of Rage.
