By on October 7, 2019

Last month, we announced Australia would be getting its very own Wacken Metal Battle. The event has been running since 2004, which sees an array of unsigned bands from around the globe perform at the annual metal festival in Germany.

This year, Australia will get their chance as Wacken Metal Battle takes places across Australia in January and February with all contestants revealed for each state.

Heads up for people attending Brisbane. Due to new venue restrictions, Brisbane’s heat will be held over two nights, but only one winner will be selected. For full details on all events head to the official Wacken Metal Battle Australia Facebook page.

Pre-sale tickets will be available from next week starting at just $10! In the meantime, head to Facebook, Bandcamp, Spotify or whatever you do to listen to music and check out all the bands on offer. In addition to the band reveal judges for all states will be announced shortly too.
