METAL4AFRICA ’22 – CAPE TOWN
Sep 3 @ 3:00 pm - Sep 4 @ 3:00 pmR150,00 – R180,00
Cape Town, what can we say?
Fourteen beautiful years of South Africa’s longest continuous-running metal festival, brought to it’s end by a virus. Well, post-lockdown gives us the opportunity to kick off a new continuous-running legacy.
M4A is coming back hot in 2022! We’ve dusted off our “welcome home” entrance banner and polished cables and equipment to a gleam worthy of celebrating Friendship and Metal once again. For us, little will have changed at Tiekiedraai (FKA-Metronome) except that we’ve got a few extra tricks up our M4A sleeve to add to festivities.
As for band line-up, we’ve got Johannesburg’s hottest new metal act, Sunken State, headed down to smash our stage. Among the local selection we’re joining not one, but two Cape Town legends to celebrate a staggering 20 years of live music. The super eclectic nu-Metal-infused Ill System and industrial-with-a-dose-of-sci-fi-horror Terminatryx collectively prove that longevity comes in all shapes. Then, to bring the brutal, we picked the best for the job, The Fallen Prophets, complimented by the brutal-tech-bounce-kings, The Alpha Sequence. But what’s a M4A show without some fresh blood? You’re right. Nothing! So we’re excited to introduce the black-metal-inspired Swazi alongside melodic-hardcore newcomers, Doomtrigger.
Included in our festivities will be the outdoor music area, the Metal Market with stalls and wares to inspire, food, drink and merriment. As mentioned, we’re also working on a few fresh surprises, so watch this space for more. We’re back, Headbangers! At long last!
