SummerFest’20: a place for friendship and metal

A Place for Friendship and Metal


Cape Town, South Africa: metal4africa‘s own bi-annual event series is coming back in 2020 with another two installations. First up is SummerFest’20, and it will take place at its established home, Metronome, near Cape Town on 01 February.

Metal music is alive in Cape Town! Nine live bands from various parts of the country will converge upon the Mother City for a celebration of all things heavy. The team at metal4africa chooses a strong diversity of representation in heavy metal sub-genres and brings in acts ranging from brand new through to legacy.

It is always our objective to put together a unique and unforgettable line-up. ~ Patrick Davidson (Festival Director)

The ongoing event series is entering its fourteenth year of operation in 2020, making SummerFest’20 the twenty-seventh to take place. However, it is only since 2016 that metal4africa has hosted these shows at Metronome in Brackenfell. Previously, SummerFest and WinterFest enjoyed a home at the Klein Libertas Theatre in Stellenbosch before that venue was destroyed by a fire in 2015; a mere six weeks before metal4africa‘s WinterFest’15.

“Initially, we felt devastated and lots of our regular supporters shared that with us. Nine years is a long time to build up a relationship and a vibe in one place. I think we’ve achieved similar at our new home though. And it took much less time to find our feet here at Metronome. I feel that we’re now running a better event here than we ever managed before and our patrons seem to agree.” ~ Patrick Davidson
