David Koch, an experienced promoter of the metal in the city, Fireball has managed to harvest an unusual status for itself as one of the most popular metal festivals in the state. He started Fireball as a passion and it has grown bigger over the past few years.
David Koch expressed that it is good news for the scene in Guwahati as there are hardly any dedicated rock or metal gigs nowadays. He further said that the scene needs to be promoted and talent needs to be showcased no matter what the number of fans. At the end of the day, it is an art, a creative expression and it will never die down expressed David.
