Blacken Open Air Festival Is Back On, Baby!

If you’re looking for a unique festival experience in your own backyard, then go no further than the only one that is located in the dead centre of Australia…

Blacken Open Air Festival is back on for 2022 and will feature 40 bands hitting the stage on Arrernte country, at Inteyerrkwe, Ross River Resort in the Northern Territory from July 29th to August 1st. Containing the likes of an Australian exclusive headline performance from American tech death titans Revocation, the event will also cater to a vast array of metal genres and bands including Amyl and the Sniffers, Psycroptic, Shepherds Reign (New Zealand), Abramelin, Lagerstein, Hadal Maw, Southeast Desert Metal, Ruins, Miazma, The Neptune Power Federation, Mountain Wizard Death Cult, R U N, Diploid, Astrodeath, 100YearsWar, Descend to Acheron, Myriad Drone, Fuxache, Diskust, Potion, Lo!, C.O.F.F.I.N, Suldusk, Black Rheno, Hammers, SNAKES, Growth, The Furor, DEAD, Fleshvoid, Jeremy Whiskey, The Holy Dimes, Xanadoom, Mulga Bore Hard Rock, Nglah, Whet, Slugboiler, 3wayjays and Tombfeeder!

Event organisers are stoked to bring much of the 2021 lineup back which had to be postponed due to ongoing state and territory restrictions during the pandemic:

“Last year’s devastation was lessened by the huge outpouring of support from the Australian community. We came very close to abandoning ship. But there is f*ck all else to do in the desert. So we are back and giving it everything we’ve got” – Pirate

Those who purchased tickets last year are still granted entry to the festival with them; for those of you wanting to jump in, you better hurry!

After three long and arduous years, Blacken Open Air announces its return to the Dead Centre of Australia. This winter, we will gather together on Arrernte country, at Inteyerrkwe, Ross River Resort. With national and international borders opening, we feel we can finally make this happen. A limited amount of early bird tickets are on sale now at blackenfestival.com. We want to give a heartfelt thanks to those of you who have held onto your 2021 tickets. They have been automatically transferred to the new dates. You legends have kept the dream alive. See you in the Dead Centre!

For a truly unique experience down under, grab your cargo shorts, skirts and metal tees and head to the NT!
