Metal Knights - Metal Festival - 6 local Canberra and national bands from 4:30pm to midnight

Epic lineup of awesome local Canberra and national metal acts including:

Witchskull who are back with their first 2023 performance and rightfully headlining.  Come watch our very own MERCHANTS OF DOOM show you why they are Canberra’s best metal band. “It’s a rather delicious compromise between the fuzz of yesteryear and the aggression of contemporary metal.” ~ Metal Hammer

Fourth studio album, The Serpent Tide, was released worldwide via Rise Above Records on June 16th.

Purenvy ~ Coming from Steel City Newcastle is the modern melodic thrash lords Purenvy, they’re back to show you what you’ve been missing! They’ll be playing their latest release: “Sweet Poison” and other bangers. So let’s welcome these Newcastle Knights to the home of the O’Connor Knights.

Elm Street ~ By popular demand, we are truly excited to present Melbourne Thrash Manowar-inspired band Elm Street who’ll be playing hits from “Last Judgement“. Also new songs on their upcoming album.

Just Say Ozzy ~ This band has a long legacy of entertaining Canberra, with several members formerly part of LiveEvil – The Iron Maiden Tribute Band. Come watch the band knock some Ozzy Osbourne classics down your throat.

Dark Horse ~ Local five-piece covers band Dark Horse will be bringing in a night of rockin’ metal madness! You’ll be booking in your chiropractor for neck adjustments after their rock/metal assault.

Aiffel ~ One of Canberra’s young up-and-coming and triple J unearthed bands is returning to our venue to showcase their new album – Damage Control! Let’s get in early and support these young lads who are openers for the festivities!
