Redfest New Years Eve 2016
Redfest is the first New Year’s Eve event of its kind in Western Australia and will bring the very best of the burgeoning Australian heavy music scene to Perth and showcase them alongside fine local talent set to a breathtaking backdrop of the Perth cityscape.
UPDATE – REDFEST WILL NOW BE AN ALL AGES EVENT*
Heading the inaugural Redfest will be The Amity Affliction.
Redfest will be the first time The Amity Affliction has played in Perth in over a year since The Big Ass Tour in 2015. As the band count down the days until the release of This Could Be Heartbreak, their fifth album follows on two consecutive ARIA #1 albums, one Platinum and three Gold records, as well as a ARIA #1 gold-certified documentary.
Northlane will return to Perth off the back on absolutely massive year for the band which has seen them grow into one of Australia’s most successful heavy music exports.
In the past 12 months, Northlane released their ARIA #1 album, Node, scored triple j Feature Album, won the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album, dropped a surprise collaboration EP called Equinox with their best mates In Hearts Wake and slayed massive stages around around Australia, UK and Europe.
You can’t have a New Year’s Eve party without inviting the boys from Deez Nuts.
Since releasing their fourth album Word Is Bond, Deez Nuts have crammed into the van and hit stages all over the world. Currently doing another lap of Europe, Deez Nuts will be well seasoned on the festival stage.
Hometown heroes Make Them Suffer have had a big 2016, with an even bigger 2017 on the horizon.
A new record deal with Rise Records, worldwide touring, festival appearances and crushing new single Ether tearing up the triple j airwaves are all a precursor to the guys and girl taking over the heavy world.
Sydney’s Hellions have been riding a wave of critical acclaim leading up to the release of their third album Opera Oblivia, which is currently enjoying triple j Feature Album status.
After wowing audiences at not one, but two sold out Unify Gatherings, Hellions spent the past couple of months on the European festival circuit, solidifying their reputation as one of the most innovative, passionate and talented bands around.
Local legends Saviour will be flying the flag proudly for Perth this New Year’s Eve.
Before they called it a day, Saviour were one of the most promising young Australian bands in heavy music. Resurrecting the band earlier this year with three new members, Saviour have reshaped their sound for the next leg of the journey.
* A dedicated area for under 18’s will be setup separate from the 18+ area, so they won’t be impacting on your night, and you won’t be intruding on theirs.
