The 2011/2012 festival season is creeping upon us and while some have already rocked the daisies, that doesn’t sound very metal. Fortunately there is plenty of metal headed our way, with our own Metal4Africa Summerfest in the first quarter of the year.
In the mean time, Rock the River SA is just around the corner and is already shaping up to be one monster of a New Year’s festival with a dedicated metal stage. Now located just outside of Cape Town, the event is already boasting a promising some of the best metal acts the city has to offer! The current lineup for the metal stage in no particular order is as follows:
Crow Black Sky
All Guns Full Ammo
3rd Minute Effect
Fear Versus Twelve
The Impalement Theory
Rock the River SA begins on the 31st of December at Cape Town Ostrich Ranch, located
20 minutes drive from Cape Town along the N7, towards the West Coast. The organisers promise state-of-the-art sound and lighting rigs as well as ample camping space and full ameneties.
