Start Planning A BIG Aussie Roadtrip to Blacken Open Air Festival

You know how touring companies are pushing for us all to see what’s in our own backyard? Well, we’ve got a doozy of an experience for you to possibly add to your list this year… Blacken Open Air Festival is making its triumphant return to the Northern Territory (well, 83km outside Alice Springs to be exact) from 30 July – 2 August at Ross River Resort and it’s been dubbed as the most isolated and unique heavy festival of its kind!

Australia’s original camp out heavy music festival, Blacken Open Air, is back for the ninth year since its inception in 2013. It runs across three nights from Friday 30 July to Monday 2 August. Gathering on Arrernte country, against the stunning ancient backdrop of N’Dhala Gorge, Blacken provides a uniquely Australian experience. The lush festival site is surrounded by red cliff escarpments and ancient river beds. Run by Alice Springs’ own heavy music record label, The Black Wreath, this festival is like no other. Featuring an enormous lineup of bands from across the nation, as well as Arrernte cultural performance, art installations, sideshows and an array of gourmet food – Blacken has something for everyone.

A spectacular first announcement lineup has been announced, consisting of Thy Art Is Murder | Psycroptic | Amyl and The Sniffers | Shepherds Reign | Southeast Desert Metal | Clowns | Lo! | Claim The Throne | Witchskull | Ruins | SNAKES | Black Rheno | POTION | Mountain Wizard Death Cult | DEAD | Descend To Acheron | The Furor | Astrodeath | DAWN | NGLAH | Writhing | The Neptune Power Federation | FUXACHE | DisKust | Diploid and The Holy Dimes (with plenty more to be announced) so why wouldn’t you wanna jump in a van with a bunch of mates and trek it to the dead centre of Australia for a heavy music festival like no other?

Keen? details below…
