The line up features a diverse range of hard and heavy acts, from the straight up rock n roll of headliners Dead City Ruins, the thrash riffage of Desecrator and the technical death metal of Hadal MawWhoretopsy bring the brutality via their gore inspired death metal and Sydney’s Darker Half fly the flag for traditional heavy metal as do ‘the most isolated metal band in the world’ the NT’s Southeast Desert Metal. Doom and Sludge get a look in via psyche rockers Seedy Jeezus.


Two of the nations longest continually running metal bands Dreadnaught and Frankenbok are names synonymous with the Aussie metal scene and will be solid crowd favourites.
